menubarPath for "Run As" popup menu? [message #304866] Fri, 16 June 2006 10:03 Go to next message

I'm trying to contribute a menu to Run As. I've been digging around for
a while now and cannot figure out the correct value for menubarPath
attribute of my <action> element.

What is the correct menubarPath for the Run As popup menu? Alternately,
point me to the plugin that defines it. I've not been able to find that
either.

Thanks
Michael

You can use the Plug-in Registry view to find out who defines what. ex:
I went to org.eclipse.ui/Extension Points/org.eclipse.ui.actionSets.
org.eclipse.debug.ui is a good candidate, and in the second debug.ui
entry I found the Run A&s action.

It's menubar path seems to be org.eclipse.ui.run/runGroup

Thanks Paul. This is a good start. Unfortunately, when I launch the
plugin, I'm getting an error that the menubarPath is invalid. From the
help docs, it appears that I need to change this to a symbolic
referecne: additions/runGroup and define "additions". I'll have to
look further to sort this out.

The pointer to the plugin registry was great. Thanks.

Michael

Paul,
I discovered how to contribute to the Run As menu. My plugin has to
extend org.eclipse.debug.ui.launchShortcuts.

This is described in help:
Platform Plug-in Developer Guide
-> Program debug and launch support
---> Launch shortcuts

http://help.eclipse.org/help31/topic/org.eclipse.platform.do c.isv/guide/debug_launch_uishortcuts.htm
