How to add "Show in..." option to Project Explorer context menu in my RCP? [message #1779261] Thu, 04 January 2018 14:52 Go to next message

I made Eclipse IDE based RCP application. I'd like to have an "Show in" option in context popup menu of Project Explorer. Unfortunately, that option doesn't appear when I right-click on projects or folders in Explorer. I made very lite Eclipse Client, so I suppose, some plugin is missing, but I don't know which is it. I discovered, if I hit Shfit + Alt + W shortcut (standard shortcut for Show In opton), options like 'System explorer' appears - I guess there would be some binding to 'Show in' action, but, again, I cannot found it.

Is there any way to provide such functionality to my context menu in simply way, or find missing plugin?

Hi Albert,

First read this FAQ on the rules of engagement of show in [1]. Then the contribution to the show in menu is something like this:

      <menuContribution
             allPopups="true"
             locationURI="popup:org.eclipse.ui.menus.showInMenu">
          <command
                commandId="nl.remain.td.workmanagement.genericShowInCommand"
                icon="icons/activity.gif"
                label="%command.label"
                style="push">
             <parameter
                   name="nl.remain.td.workmanagement.genericShowInCommand.viewId"
                   value="nl.remain.td.workmanagement.views.Activity">
             </parameter>
             <visibleWhen
etc..
