Hello everyone,

I've decided to turn my little plug-in into an RCP application. Basically this works nicely, but I'm facing a problem with the main menu bar. Due to the product being a standalone RCP application, the "standard menus" are gone. This includes the "generic" ones such as "File -> New", "Edit -> Copy" or the entire "Window" menu.

My question would be: what's the fastest and most reliable way to get them into my RCP application? Do I really have to add menus and commands one-by-one in my plugin.xml, referring to the standard command ids, or is there a more convenient way to do this?


Thanks,


Alan

Easiest is to do it on your WorkbenchActionAdvisor.
