Launch wizard from Active Help page in Eclipse [message #1815431] Wed, 02 October 2019 17:06

I'm creating an RCP application and wanted to provide documentation using the Eclipse Help Contents (Help > Help Contents), I managed to add some pages to it by using the extension point, this works fine, but I'm interested in providing a link in one of those pages to launch a wizard, I found that Eclipse provides support for this using a feature called Active Help.

First, in my html Help page I have imported the livehelp.js script:

    <script language="JavaScript" src="PLUGINS_ROOT/"></script>

Then in the <body> I added a link:

<a href='javascript:liveAction("", "", "")'>Execute action</a>

And finally, this my TestAction class:

public class TestAction implements ILiveHelpAction {

    public void run() {
        System.out.println("Action executed");
        // code to launch wizard is here

    public void setInitializationString(String str) {


But when the link is clicked the action is not executed, I tried setting a breakpoint in the run() method but it is never called, any idea why this is happening?
