Question: Should the main menu automatic be visible or not? Now I have one environment (windows 7 java 1.6.0_22 ) where it is visible again, but on my second (windows 7 java 1.6.0_31-b05) it is not. The applications are not identical. The first one already has some additional forms, the second one is still empty. Is showing the menu dependent on the contents of the application or any other aspects?
The main menu should be always visible (except the 'getConfiguredVisible' is set to false on a certain menu). Is your project a migration project from earlier Scout releases?
A good place to start with debugging is: '<your app name>.ui.swt.application.menu.DesktopMenuBar#getContributionItems'. This method should be called several times during startup and return contribution items with the last calls.
my project is a new project. If I start the application the menu is most of the times not visible (sometimes it is). At start up an outline is showed. When I select an item in my table view, the main menu is shown.
