[RCP 4] Custom element in menu and/or toolbar [message #871651] Mon, 14 May 2012 16:17 Go to next message

Hello,

as indicated in the thread title, I want to implement a custom element in an RCP 4 application - best would be in the menu, but I already gathered from my search that this is probably not possible (not event in RCP 3).

I want to add a search field, a combo list and a button - so far I have only been able to add the button via the application.e4xmi.

Can anyone direct me if and how this is possible to implement?

Thanks in advance!

In 3.x you can add controls to a toolbar using the org.eclipse.ui.menus extension point and the control element.

In e4xmi you would add a ToolControl to a toolbar or trim area to get the same effect.

Menus don't accept controls.

Thank you!

For anyone being a beginner like me, the class associated with the ToolControl should add the relevant information (widget and the like) in the constructor.
