Hello All,

I want to show only the files in the package explorer which has GUI. How can I use exsisting package explorer so that I can do this by making less changes. Is there any way to extend all functionality of default package explorer and just override specific part which i want to change?

I would be greatfull for your help
Thanks
M-Tahir

Why not use the 'Navigator' view then?

I can't use Navigator view. Because I need to show only files that contains GUI components. Before this I need to parse the file first and check is that file has GUI components or not. So I need to filter the contents on runtime.

I see. In that case you either want to use the Common Navigator
framework to build your own view or you provide extensions to the
existing 'Project Explorer' view (take a look at the
org.eclipse.ui.navigator.* extension points).

Thanks for your reply. I am just wondering that is this would be more better for me to change org.eclipse.jdt.ui plugin directly?

It is, because the Package Explorer is not meant to be extended and is
internal.
