Hi All,

I am creating eclipse application where I need to create new file and export files to some other file format.

I have added menu items using eclipse default command id like org.eclipse.ui.newWizard and org.eclipse.ui.file.export. On click of these menus an eclipse default wizard appears.

Is it possible to customize these wizards as per my requirements? I want to reuse few of existing options provided by eclipse.

Or do I have to write code to create new wizard as per my requirements?

Hi Snehil,

You can try using WizardNewFileCreationPage class. This is standard main page for a wizard that creates a file resource.
Otherwise you can create your own wizard. Following tutorial gives brief idea of new wizard creation.

Hope this will be helpful for you.

Thanks & Regards,

Hi Snehil,

Some of the wizards you can customize by creating subclasses and overriding certain methods, while some of them you are not allowed to extend, for example, you cannot extend ExternalProjectImportWizard although I really wish we can.
