Defining position of menu item in Project Explorer context menu [message #1744703] Thu, 29 September 2016 14:51

Hey guys,

we are adding a menu item to the context menu item of the Project Explorer.



This works fine, with the following code in the plugin.xml:

<extension point="org.eclipse.ui.menus">
    <menuContribution locationURI="popup:org.eclipse.ui.navigator.ProjectExplorer#PopupMenu?after=export">
               label="%doSomething" >

With this code our menu entry appears after the menu entry "Export...".
We checked the ID of the "Export"-menu entry with the Plugin Spy, and we used "export", because it's the active contribution item identifier.



we want that our menu entry is the first one in the Project Explorer context menu.
But the first menu entry is "New" (which has sub-menu entries) and we do not know which ID we should use, in the "after"-property...

Is there a way to find this out? Or is there another way to define the place of the menu entry, like an index or something?

Thanks for your help + kind regards! =)
