Ok, so I have successfully added the combo control to the main toolbar of my eclipse RCP application using the following extension within one of my application's plugins.|
I have defined
public class ComboToolbarContribution extends
and the above class returns a combo control that is pre-populated with values 100%, 200%, 300%, 400%
This toolbar is enabled for certain types of editors in my application using the visibleWhen clause on the toolbar extension.
Each editor in the application can support a different zoom level, so the content of the combo needs to be updated everytime an editor is activated to reflect the zoom level currently supported by it.
How do I update this combocontrol to reflect the value of the editor that is currently in focus or activated? Is there any hook available to do so?
I know that I can trap the partActivated event triggered by the PartListener. But how do I access this control from within the main toolbar of the application within the implementation of the event handling?
The eclipse version I am developing against is 4.2.2
Please let me know in case anyone of you have any idea on how to go about this.
