Hi,

I am contributing with a command to the ConsoleView toolbar. Currently the buttons are always shown at the far right side. I would like to have control on where they are shown, and in particular I want to put them on the left side of the other buttons. I have been playing with the Query part of the locationURI without success.

Normally I should be able to position the buttons "before" or "after" a known IContributionItem. But I have no clue how to find out which items are currently contributed to the ConsoleView.
Using something like:
locationURI="toolbar:org.eclipse.ui.console.ConsoleView?before=additions"
wont work. The button is no longer shown.

My extension looks like this:

<extension point="org.eclipse.ui.menus">
      <menuContribution
            locationURI="toolbar:org.eclipse.ui.console.ConsoleView?after=additions">
         <command
               commandId="ConsoleTests.addConsole"
               icon="icons/alt_window_16.gif"
               label="Add filter"
               style="push"
               tooltip="Add a console filter">
         </command>
      </menuContribution>
   </extension>


Thank you very much!
Juan Felipe Caro

Try and use Plugin menu/toolbar spy to find out the IDs of some of the buttons. Use ALT+SHIFT+F2 and then click on a button.
