Hi,

I am quite new to Eclipse plugin development. I would like to know how a folder/file can be made as derived.

I have read that IResource.setDerived(boolean value) can be used for the same however it is deprecated and there is an overloaded method IResource.setDerived(boolean value, IProgressMonitor monitor).

I did go through some posts but found not very helpful for me.

But I am not very sure how I could use it. If I could get a code snippet from which i could get to know more/understand would be great!

Thanks for any help,
Latha

You use org.eclipse.core.resources.IResource.setDerived(boolean, IProgressMonitor).

If you're marking a lot of resources or if it's a long-running operation, you can schedule a org.eclipse.core.runtime.jobs.Job (it will pass in a progress monitor).

You can also just call it with setDerived(true, null);
