Can Resource Navigator display files with specific extensions [message #235679] Thu, 14 June 2007 08:26 Go to next message

Hi,

I'm developing an application using GEF and RCP. Currently the Resource
Navigator displays all the files in the workspace, is it possible to
provide a filter to list files with specific extensions. (for example,
xml, .jpg etc). I need this, because currently when i create a Project,
it creates a ".project" file, which i doesnt need to display in the
Navigator window, (i attempted to remove it, but when i refresh the
project, the ".project" file reappears). Please help. Thanks in advance.

Hi

The extension point to do this is org.eclipse.ui.ide.resourceFilters.

Cheers...

My RCP product configuration includes two plugins (a GEF, and an RCP
workbench), in both the plugin.xml files, i have have included the
following extension, but still it *DOESN'T work*. The navigator window
still displays the ".project" file, when projects are created. Please help.

<extension
point="org.eclipse.ui.ide.resourceFilters">
<filter
pattern="*.project"
selected="false">
</filter>
</extension>

selected="true">

I have come up against this problem too.
I have extended the extension point "org.eclipse.ui.ide.resourceFilter". But this problem still exist.
So I investigated the eclipse source code. I found out there are some codes in FiltersContentProvider.class as below:
IExtensionPoint extension = Platform.getExtensionRegistry() .getExtensionPoint(ResourcePatternFilter.FILTERS_TAG);

And ResourcePatternFilter.FILTERS_TAG is "resourceFilters", is not "org.eclipse.ui.ide.resourceFilter". So the result extension is null.

At last, the filter extension could not be registered into the Navigator.
