Hi,
I want to show the "Colors & Fonts" preferences page in my custom Eclipse RCP application.

At the moment I only can see my custom preference pages from all my developed plugins.
But I cannot see the default Eclipse preferences pages ("Appearance", etc.)

How can I programatically (or via Extension Point) add this page?

Thanks for you help

Are you basing you RCP on the RCP SDK/runtime or on Platform SDK/runtime?
The first provides a minimal application, the second provides an "empty" IDE with project explorer and also the general appeareances prefs.

You can add framework preference pages to your RCP app by including the appropriate extensions in your plugin.xml

See http://git.eclipse.org/c/platform/eclipse.platform.ui.git/tree/bundles/org.eclipse.ui.ide/plugin.xml#n564 for adding the Appearance and Colours and Fonts Pref page.
