Disable Package Explorer .* filter in plugin? [message #967476] Thu, 01 November 2012 19:57 Go to next message

I'm writing an Eclipse plugin to interact with a system which depends upon files whose name starts with a "." character. The default configuration for the Package Explorer has a filter which hides these files. Which makes sense in the normal case.

I've implemented the org.eclipse.jdt.ui.javaElementFilters extension point with a new filter which hides all .* files EXCEPT the ones I don't want to hide.

However, the default .* is still enabled and will be until a user goes an manually disables it.

Is there a way to disable this by default from my plugin?

Thanks
