MenuManager and Menu Contribution items has been already created.

For the input Menu Item id/label , i need to problematically drop-down/open/display a menu item from menubar in eclipse.I think i may need to fire some event.

This is requirement for UI Automation that Menu should be drop down automatically.

Can you please help at the earliest. I'm trying following , but here not sure how to set the X & y co-ordinates where mouse click event should be fired.

		String toCompare = "File";
		Menu menu = window.getShell().getMenuBar();
		if(menu!=null && !menu.isDisposed()){
			MenuItem[] items = menu.getItems();
			for(int i=0;i<items.length;i++){
				String menuText = LegacyActionTools.removeMnemonics(items[i].getText());
					Event event = new Event();
					event.doit = true;
					event.widget = items[i];
					event.type = SWT.MouseDown;
					event.button = 1;
					boolean success = items[i].getDisplay().post(event);
					System.out.println("Could we generate the event ? "+success);
