I need some help with the activation of commands using key-bindings.
I have added a popupmenu for Copy/Paste in my RCP application using I have set the commands org.eclipse.ui.edit.copy and org.eclipse.ui.edit.paste respectively. In addition I have added a handler for the commands that activates the handlers when a specific activeMenuSelection is found. Now the commands work just fine from the context menu itself but it is not possible to trigger them with the keyboard binding CTRL+C, CTRL+V. Tracing shows that the default WidgetMethodHandler is active at the time the CTRL+C is pressed.

Can someone tell me what I am missing here?

Thanks in advance

activeMenuSelection is only set while the context menu is shown. You need to add separate handlers for o.e.ui.edit.copy and .paste for your particular situations (e.g., for a particular activePart)
