Hi everyone,

I'm not sure this is a specific EMF related problem, it might also be an eclipse plug-in related problem, but since I am having it related to plugins working on my EMF model, I will just post it here, I hope that's alright.

I have developed a number of plugins adjusting my EMF model using the popUpMenus extension point. Since the number of plugins has steadily increased and some of them are related to each other, I'd like to group them into categories.

So if I right-click on an element and the context menu pops up, I want a category name to appear with an arrow (similar to New child extending to show the different types I can create), and in the advanced menu I want my options to appear.

I could imagine that there's a quite simple solution to this, but I'm having trouble finding one.

Hopefully someone can point to the right direction.

Thanks,
Markus

Markus,

This is more of a general Eclipse question. With the menuBarPath you
will maybe be able to do something like that...
