I'm trying to develop a plugin to toggle eclipse menu. I have beign success upto the point where i can toggle the menu from a toolbar button and update the toggle state upon eclipse start-up based on Workbench Window activate event. But this is not ideal since sometimes the activation event is not fired when the IDE started up.

I would like to know a more stable event/hook where i can update the menu after the Workbench Window is loaded and perspective is loaded and menu is updated. So in this event i have all the menu i need to hide already loaded. Is there such event/hook available in eclipse platform to archive this ?

Source code of the plugin can be found at https://github.com/gayanper/eclipse-themes

The better way to do this is to use Commands and Handlers, and have your command handler implement IElementUpdater. That provides your handler the opportunity to update the check/toggle state of each menu or tool item where it has been bound.
