Hi,

during an action I was showing a ProgressMonitor.
Then I checked the Checkbox "always run in background".

But now I never saw the Dialog again and don't know how re-show it.

Can somebody help me???

Thanks.

Exactly what I'm searching for.

It works.

Hi,

I recently checked "Always run in background" for the "Progress" view. I would like to undo this. How can this be accomplished?

From your previous post, you point to a thread that states that I would have to edit the Eclipse code to do this? That doesn't make sense to me. At most I would think that I would have to change some persistent setting somewhere. But edit the code?!?!

Thank you.

Hi,

actually, the post you mentioned exactly suggests this, to set a persistent setting :).

WorkbenchPlugin.PlatformUI.getPreferenceStore().setValue( IPreferenceConstants.RUN_IN_BACKGROUND, false );

Doing this will cause a warning, because this is workbench internal. I'm using this in my application
as well and it works. but it is really ugly, of course. so if someone knows a better way i'd be glad to hear
about it.

greetings,
-ben

these settings are stored under in the data location. By default, the
data location is <eclipse-install-folder/workspace. If you delete this
folder the default settings will be used.

But won't this delete all other settings as well?

It seem to me that this is a bug. There should definitely be a toggle somewhere in the preferences for this.

This setting can be changed in the WorkbenchPreferencePage.

Hi,

Would you mind telling me exactly how to navigate to this page? I can't seem to find it anywhere.

Just to clarify, I am not an Eclipse developer... I know next to nothing about the Eclipse codebase. It seems that you are referring me to a class name when you write something like "WorkbenchPreferencePage".

I am looking for something more like:

Go to: Window > Preferences > Some Section > Some Other Section. Once there, it's the checkbox labeled "something".

Thank you!

Window -> Preferences -> General -> uncheck 'always run in background'


I'm just wondering, it seems that this has nothing to do with RAP in particular.
I thought you were refering to a self-build RAP application, i guess that's why
you got the 'codebase' answers.

For questions about the Eclipse IDE itself you should consider asking in the Eclipse
User-Boards, since this is a newsgroup especially for Rich-Ajax-Platform developers.
So most probably you'll get a developer answer here ;)).

HTH,

Thanks! That worked.

Sorry about that... I thought I just searched in the general forums off of the Eclipse links page, and found a related thread. Not sure how I ended up in this specific forum.
