Cheatsheet help: What is the contextId syntax? [message #269737] Wed, 01 September 2004 17:19 Go to next message

Hi,

I'm creating a cheatsheet, where I would like to use the 'contextId' to
popup some help.
I don't know what a 'contextId' should look like. I've reference Platform
Plug-in Developer Guide and looked at the other cheatsheets for examples,
but haven't found any that are using this.

Any examples, pointers on how to use the 'contextId' with cheatsheets is
greatly appreciated.

Regards,
frank

There are examples of this in the Pattern cheat sheet in the test
project.

1. Connect to the Eclipse CVS repository using the steps here:
http://www.eclipse.org/eclipse/faq/eclipse-faq.html#users_7

2. Check Out the org.eclipse.ui.tests.cheatsheets project

3. In the plugin.xml the following is defined to step up the contexts
<extension point="org.eclipse.help.contexts">
<contexts file="contexts.xml"/>
</extension>

4. In the plugin.xml the following cheatsheet is defined:
<cheatsheet
name="Testing Infopop and Help Links"

category="org.eclipse.ui.tests.cheatsheets.cheatSheetsTestCat "
contentFile="cheatsheets/tests/TestInfopop_Help.xml"
id="org.eclipse.ui.tests.cheatsheets.infopop.help">
<description>
This cheat sheet has items to test the framework
</description>
</cheatsheet>

5. Look at the Infopop/Help test cheat sheet found here:
/org.eclipse.ui.tests.cheatsheets/cheatsheets/tests/TestInfo pop_Help.xml

6. The following defines an item that shows infopop when the help button
is pressed:
<item
title="Display the gathered data and additional parameters"
contextId="org.eclipse.ui.tests.cheatsheets.test_cheatsheets ">
<description>
Try the help link, you should see an infopop with some sample text.
</description>
</item>

7. The following defines an item that shows a help topic in the help
system when the help button is pressed:
<item
title="Test help link"
href="/org.eclipse.platform.doc.user/concepts/chelpsys.htm" >
<description>
Try the help link, you should see the concepts for the help system.
</description>
</item>


Later,
