Adding a context menu in NatTable Eclipse 3 RCP Application [message #1693022] Tue, 21 April 2015 09:44 Go to next message

Hello,

I want to add a context menu to a NatTable in an RCP Eclipse 3 application. I am following the tutorial posted in the blog of Lars Vogel http://blog.vogella.com/2015/02/03/nattable-context-menus-with-eclipse-menus/?utm_medium=twitter&utm_source=twitterfeed
I am using the "Combination with Eclipse 3.x menus" part of the tutorial.

The problem that I found using this method, is when I run the application and I right click on the nattable, the contribution that I added is displayed, however when I right click again it disappears. And then, I am left with only the debug information menu Item (that I want to delete by the way). I am really stuck with this issue and any help is welcome.

Thanks in advance

Inès

First, his name is Lars Vogel, not Vogella. The later is the company name.
Second, if you have a look at the author you will notice that he didn't wrote the blog post. Wink

Sounds like there is an issue with your MenuManager. But without seeing your code and knowing which NatTable version you use, I can't tell you what you are doing wrong. I'm pretty sure I tested this back when I wrote the blog post.

If you don't want to show the debug information menu item, why do you use the DebugMenuConfiguration? It is just used as an example. For a custom menu you should create a custom AbstractUiBindingConfiguration, similar to the showed DebugMenuConfiguration.

Hello,

First of all thanks for your reply Smile . Second of all, I am using the latest version of nattable wich is 1.3.0. As for the debug configuration, I created a class extending the AbstractUiBindingConfiguration.
For further information here is my code

This is the class that extends AbstractUiBindingConfiguration
public class DebugMenuConfiguration extends AbstractUiBindingConfiguration {
	
	private final Menu debugMenu;
	private final NatTable natTable;
	@Override
	public void configureUiBindings(UiBindingRegistry uiBindingRegistry) {
		uiBindingRegistry.registerMouseDownBinding(new MouseEventMatcher(SWT.NONE,																		 GridRegion.BODY,																	 MouseEventMatcher.RIGHT_BUTTON), new PopupMenuAction(this.debugMenu));

	}
	
	public DebugMenuConfiguration(NatTable natTable,MenuManager mgr) {
	    // extend the declarative menu provided by the MenuManager
		this.natTable = natTable;		
	    this.debugMenu = new PopupMenuBuilder(this.natTable,mgr)
	                .withInspectLabelsMenuItem()
	                .build();	   
	   
	}

}



Then I call it in the nattable.addConfiguration() like so :

 nattable.addConfiguration(new DebugMenuConfiguration(nattable,mgr)); // nattable is the instance of NatTable that I am working with



Then in my view in I instanciate the MenuManager :

 public void createPartControl(Composite parent) {		
			
		MenuManager mgr = new MenuManager();			
		getSite().registerContextMenu("nattableContextMenu",mgr,null);	


Finally, nattableContextMenu is declared under org.eclipse.ui.menus like so :

popup:nattableContextMenu => the I created a command under it, I gave it a label, an id and a command.

I hope now my question si more clear.

Thanks for your help.

Inès

Please open a ticket. I tried to search for this quickly, but it seems there is an issue regarding the MenuManager and contribution items with Eclipse 3 API. Or the compat layer. With Eclipse 4 everything works fine.

Which Eclipse version do you use in the target?
