Modifying org.eclipse.ui.ide.prefs [message #1773061] Thu, 21 September 2017 00:39 Go to next message

Hello, I am trying to do something that I assume Eclipse does not want me to do.

I am currently working in C/C++ and am using the "Problem View" to process errors and warnings in a large project. As I have started to use the filters I wanted to add in each possible gcc warning as a "NOT-CONTAINS" text filter. Rather than use the UI interface, nice as it may be to enter these one at a time, I wanted to use a known editor and regex tools to get them to the place I wanted them.

I found that they were being kept in an xml document within org.eclipse.ui.ide.prefs. However, as carefully as I crafted the text, modeled after a UI generated example, when I put them in, Eclipse no longer recognized them, or any other things added. I assume that somewhere is a check value to tells Eclipse that this file is corrupt.

I am not yet ready to begin writing Eclipse plugins, but still I would like to be able to make this modification to the prefs file.

Any ideas.. or is this the wrong forum? If it matters, I am using Mars, Neon and Oxygen depending on the machine I have access to at the time.

Thanks,

-- Abs

So it's in <workspace>/.metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.ui.ide/dialog_settings.xml in a section in a file like this:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<section name="Workbench">
	<section name="org.eclipse.ui.internal.views.markers.FiltersConfigurationDialog">
		<item value="My Filter" key="SELECTED_FILTER_GROUP"/>
		<list key="PREV_SELECTED_ELEMENTS">
		</list>
	</section>
</section>
Note that I'm pretty sure that this file is only read on startup, so if you change it, you have to restart the IDE. Perhaps that's the problem?

Yes, except that all the lines are on one line. On my system the file is specifically:

/home/bms/workspace/.metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.core.runtime/.settings/org.eclipse.ui.ide.prefs

I updated it to contain this:
PROBLEMS_FILTERS_MIGRATE=true
TASKS_FILTERS_MIGRATE=true
eclipse.preferences.version=1

This modification was done within the UI. If I manually add more in place neither those nor the one I have added with the UI show up. If I revert it back, I can see the ones added in the UI.

Here are the ones I tried to add manually:

Understand that is all on one line, the forum software reformats it of course.

Yes, I have restarted the program.

I find it interesting that there are literally "\n" characters in the text. And I don't mean new line characters, ascii 10 or 13 but literally "\" followed by "\n" . Made it easy to format in an editor, but odd to see.

It it's stored as a preference property, yes, it all has to be encoded so that the entire XML string becomes the value of a single property in the *.properties format, so an = and the line feeds must be escaped. When it's encoded as the value of some XML attribute, the escaping looks even more horrible... Note that if it's really the preference that's being used, you can use Oomph to record the preference when you change it, and then you can edit your user setup (Navigate -> Open Setup -> User) to edit the XML there. There it's been decoded, so you could paste in your normal XML. The advantage of converting it to a preference task is that it will be automatically applied to every workspace on startup...

I am not sure I can do that with Oomph. Nor do I understand the actual steps outlined when you are saying (Navigate -> Open Setup -> User). We are now in definitely uncharted areas of Eclipse for me.

BTW, I am now on Oxygen 1 4.7.1 if that changes anything.

If I do the following in an Oxygen installation, Navigate -> Open Setup -> User, click on the main toolbar button with hover "Capture Preferences", type org.eclipse.ui.internal.views.markers.CachedMarkerBuilderorg.eclipse.ui.views.ProblemView in the filter box, it will show the one preference for that. This contains the big XML blob. I can double click that entry in the dialog, to move it to the Selected Preferences side. In the Setup Editor for the User, it will select that preference task that was just added, which I can double click to show it in the properties view. In the Properties view, for the Value property, I can select it to activate the cell editor, and use the ... button to the far right to bring up the multi-lined editor for that value, which looks like this:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<filterGroups andFilters="false" markerLimit="100" markerLimitEnabled="true">
<filterGroup IMemento.internal.id="Errors/Warnings on Project" enabled="false" filterLimit="-1" scope="3" workingSet="Aggregate for window 1499318382968">

<fieldFilter IMemento.internal.id="org.eclipse.ui.ide.markerType"/>
</filterGroup>
</filterGroups>
Showing the "My Configuration" that I added with the containsText="foobar" that I added for it. So here I can edit the XML and save in my User setup so that it's applied on startup to every workspace.

Of course it might be the case that the IDE reads this preference before Oomph's preference task modifies it...

So in following your steps I can get to that screen with that data. If I then duplicate the 3 lines of the last <filtergroup> that was added and give it a new name and new value and save it. When I close and go back to the actual problem filters screen, it does not add it to the list. Even if I go to File->Restart eclipse.

The piece that looks suspicious is the "iMemento.internalId" value which seems to have a partially randomized value for each entry Such as "USER1505932124030" though that might be a red herring.

Yes, how knows that that ID is used for, but I assume each entry you add needs a unique one. Also workingSet="Aggregate for window 1499318382968" looks not very portable to other workspaces... But note that just saving the user.setup does nothing to modify the preferences. You have to do Help -> Perform Setup Tasks... to perform the tasks. If you modify a preference task, it should be in the list of tasks you can confirm. Only then would a restart maybe help, given that it's highly likely that this preference is read only or startup (and perhaps saved only on shutdown. Try also just renaming an existing entry in the user.setup, performing the tasks, and restarting. If that doesn't show the renamed thing, then I really don't know from where the framework is reading the restored configuration...

Okay, I even ran the part in Help->Perform setup tasks. It looked like it did quite a bit, but when it was finished, I didn't notice anything. Even after I restarted it nothing was different. If I merely renamed one of the items nothing was applied, and if I go and add or change in the actual UI, it does not show up on the user.setup window until I remove the org.eclipse... thing, and add it in again.

I see. Because it's an XML value, we don't overwrite the existing XML value if there is an existing one because users were recording things without understanding that this will simply replace all the stuff in the XML, even the new stuff they might add manually later one.

https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=475139

So setting this preference task value will currently only work with a new workspace. I tested that, and that does work, when all the ids are unique, and it works without a restart...

Ideally a preference task could specify that it should overwrite an existing XML value, but that's currently not a provided feature, so at best currently this approach could be used to populate an initial value in every new workspace. And then I still wonder about this aggregate ID value really being portable across workspaces...

Currently, this screen is broken in Oxygen anyway. The 2 radio buttons at the top are either removed or obscured and as it is , it is unusable because of the default behavior.

In working on a large code base doing code cleanup and such, I can compile several modules and see the output in the problems window. There are certain warnings, for instance, that we will either not fix, or not be interested in fixing in some particular phase. As I come to these I would want to turn them off and look at the other 30,000 warnings. So with GCC, I figured I could turn them off via the warning value in []. Back in neon where it wasn't broken yet, I was able to do this with a few that I added through the interface. And I was able to turn them off one at a time, additively as I went. This was kind of useful. So I thought that if I went through the compiler's documentation and got all the different warnings I could do it in an editor that was much more useful with text processing than the onesie-twosie UI available.

That is what started this whole thing. So it sounds like I could do this the way you are describing, then create a new workspace. Then I would have to move all my projects into that new workspace, recreate my old workspace again, and then move all my projects back into it. Does that sound accurate?
