cannot create dynamic Status bar controls in eclipse 4.2 [message #949217] Thu, 18 October 2012 20:19

I need to dynamically create some Status Bar controls. It works fine in Eclipse 3.8. In 4.2, the controls do not appear at all. Is this still supported in 4.2?

This is how I defined my tool bar in plugin.xml:

<extension point="org.eclipse.ui.menus">
<menuContribution
locationURI="toolbar:org.eclipse.ui.trim.status">
<toolbar id="my.toolbar.test">
<dynamic
class="my.status.myStatusBar"
id=" my.toolbar.test.items">
</dynamic>
</toolbar>
</menuContribution>
</extension>

where my.status.myStatusBar extends from WorkbenchWindowControlContribution.

This works in 4.2 when I define the toolbar using the <control> tag.

Is this a bug?

Thanks!
