i have created a menuContribution over the extension point : org.eclipse.ui.menus (see uploaded screenshot). My problem is that i have to rename the "Softwarebuild" label at runtime. Is this possible? I have spent some hours on this problem can one help me?

Best regards,

Hi Markus,

Could you tell me/us where the desired menu should appear?

If the menu is a kind of a pulldown menu(i.e. in a Toolbar), then you could use a command instead of a menu.
For that command you then choose the style "pulldown" and in order to attach items to that pulldown-command you have to create a second menuContribution with menu:"id of the pulldown-command". To that second menuContribution you can now attach all the childelements of the pulldown command.

To modify the pulldown command at runtime you´ll then have to implement the org.eclipse.ui.commands.IElementUpdater and use the org.eclipse.ui.menus.UIElement.setText(String) method to alternate the text or whatever you want.

If this solution does not fit, you´ll have to use a dynamic instead of a menu.

Could you please go a bit more into detail, so that I/we get to know what your aim is?
The better the question, the better the answer Wink

Do not hesitate to ask, if you need further information...

Best regards,
