Problem using wizardPages extension point - custom page does not display [message #208405] Mon, 11 February 2008 14:44 Go to next message

Hello,

I am trying to follow the steps outlined in this article to add a custom
wizard page to the project creation wizard. I copied the sections of
this article exactly as they are written here (the config-factory,
action, and wizard-pages parts in particular), and the custom wizard
page does not display at all. I did confirm via breakpoint that the
config-factory was invoked. Is there a bug, did I somehow make a
mistake, or is this article not up-to-date on the way to do this in 3.0 M4?

Thanks in advance,
David

Have you looked in the error log? If there is a problem with your
extension point usage, you should see message(s) in the log.

Also make sure that the id of the INSTALL action matches the value of
the action attribute on your wizardPages extension.

Thanks for the quick reply, Konstantin.

I had a "failed to instantiate MyPage" message in the log. It took me
awhile to realize that for the example code I'd copied from your
article, somehow I'd made the wizard page constructor protected instead
of public.

In my own custom implementation, I had not implemented the no-arg
constructor, but instead the one that takes a page name argument.

Sorry about the newbie user error, and for failing to check the log.

Is there somewhere that stresses that there needs to be a public, no-arg
constructor on the implemented wizard page? In hindsight, it's clear
why that needs to be there, but the compiler didn't warn me that I was
missing anything.

Thanks again,
David
