Pulldown menu: display label of a command [message #1064799] Fri, 21 June 2013 03:41 Go to next message

Hi,

In a contributed toolbar, I contributed a pulldown menu with two commands contributed in the pulldown menu. When I click on a command contributed in the menu, I want to display the label of this command close to pulldown arrow.

1. Is it possible to do this ?

I have another problem with my contributed pulldown menu. I have no icon associated with it. So by default, the label of the pulldown menu is displayed. All others commands (which have icons) contributed in the same toolbar take the same width as the pulldown menu ! It is ugly.

2. Is it possible to set the size of the contributed commands widgets in a contributed toolbar ?

Thanks,


Axel Richard

You might have to try something with
org.eclipse.jface.window.DefaultToolTip.

The icons take the same width as your label? Or the same height? Could
you please attach a small snapshot?

There's no way to control the size of contributed toolitem widgets.

It's the same height, but the width is also modified.

I attached two screenshots : one without dropdown menu, and one with dropdown. One this with dropdown, you can see that all widgets contributed in toolbar have their height and wdth modified compare to this without dropdown.

Thanks. There's no way to modify the height yourself (and that's what's
effecting the width). I'd replace it with an icon.
