Hi,

The context menu on text based widgets on Windows 7 and Linux (RedHat version > 5) has options for Unicode entry from English keyboards.

On Windows 7, the "Input Method Editor" options. How to get rid of these options.

The context menu options on windows 7 are

1. Right to left reading order
2. Show Unicode control characters
3. Insert Unicode control characters
4. Close IME (this does not do anything).
5. Reconversion.

The context menu options on linux.
1. Insert Unicode Control character

and some times
1. Input Method

I have tried to use the .gtkrc-2.0 properties (gtk-show-input-method-menu = 0 and gtk-show-unicode-menu = 0) to disable these context menu options on linux, unfortunately it hasn't worked for me.


It seems on windows, installing unicode language packs results in these additional options in context menu's. But, I haven't found any solutions for this problem.

Hi,

This case was recently fixed for gtk, see
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=284777 . It only affected
custom controls (eg.- StyledText), because wrapped native controls were
already showing the correct behaviour.

Windows 7 is the reverse case, it's swt's native controls that show these
menu items. In this case this behviour is correct since it respects the
platform. If you want to get rid of these items then see if there's a
Windows preference somewhere that allows you to do this (I don't know if
this exists or not). If you are able to change this then it will make these
menu items go away for all of your native win32 apps including eclipse/swt.

Hi,

Thanks for the response, was very useful.

BTW has this worked for anyone !
http://dev.eclipse.org/newslists/news.eclipse.newcomer/msg20 408.html

I tried this, it is not working. I am on RH 64-bit server edition.
The options shown in IM in context menu is coming from the current active profile.
By commenting out the IM options in current active profile, I could reduce the number of options (sub menu items to "Input Methods"), could not eliminate it totally.

If this doesn't work for you with SWT/Eclipse 3.7M2 or newer then perhaps
the fix in https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=284777 missed some
aspect of this case. Please either re-open the report (if you're able) or
log a new report with the details.

Thanks,
Grant
