Hello, I am building an Eclipse 4 Application and I would like to make an about dialog as known from Eclipse 3.

I used the Menu Spy and learned the following:

Theactive contribution location URI:
menu:help?after=about

The active action definition identifier:
org.eclipse.ui.help.aboutAction

The active contribution item class:
ActionFactory$WorkbenchCommandAction

The contributing plug-in:
org.eclipse.ui.workbench


Can I somehow use this action to open or extend the about dialog in my application?

Are you running with the compat layer? All you show is part of the
compat layer and you can't simply use it in a plain e4 app.

Like in the other reply please ask such questions on the e4 newsgroup.
