Hi there,

searched all over the web, but didn't find anything regarding my problem.

I'd like to write a plugin with a new menu and there an "about" menu entry. There I'd like to see the actual version of my plugin. I.e. if I set the Version in the project settings to "2.4.1.alpha", I'd like to see this string in an about message box opened from the menu entry.

Is there a way to do this?

Thanks in advance
Alex

I do this by the following snippet:

Version version = YourPlugin.getDefault().getBundle().getVersion()

Is this what you need?

best regards,
Gilbert

Yep, that's it! Thanks for the support.

To make it clear for other people, I used a slight different line:
String sVersion = MyPluginPackage.Activator.getDefault().getBundle().getVersion().toString();
