contribute to context menu from E3 plugin in FXML view? [message #1228799] Wed, 08 January 2014 04:28 Go to next message

I've got an FXML view part that builds a pretty complex UI - however much simpler than what it would have been to do using SWT.

Now I've got a challenge that I'm not sure how to deal with. Within the FXML view there are a couple different ListViews that I'd like to add context menus. And then from another plugin I want to be able to contribute to those menus.

Is there a right/recommended way to do this?

Thanks,

JK

So what underlying version of Eclipse 3.x or 4.x is this? In 4.x all the
information is stored in the EMF-Model hence you could in theory get
access to it.

You can naturally always read the 3.x menu-extension point yourself and
makeup a context-menu in your FXMLs controller.

But I'm wondering if it would not be easier to roll your own extension
point.

Hi Thomas,

That seems to be the approach I'm thinking I'll have to do... however I think I have a bigger problem in that that I can't seem to actually get ContextMenus to actually work within my E3 plugin.

The underlying framework is E3... so my view part extends the FXView.
