Hi,

I have a requirement where I will be returning more than one different
instances of an element. I am able to do that by returning this multiple
instances as the child descriptors of the parent element. So, this away I
will be able to collect a set of actions for the same on the sub menu that
appears on the context menu, when the element is selected.
But, I am not aware how to change the name of the ChildCreateActions that
get collected as part of my ActionBarContributor's sub menu. I am not able
to see any thing like a setName on them.

I got to know about CommandActionDelegate, but not sure where to implement
it. I guess my CreateChildActions come already implementing that.

Can somebody tell me how to do this?

Thank you,

Asha R.

Asha,

The CreateChildCommand itself could be specialized to return something
different for getText.

Hi Ed,

Thanks for the reply.
But, I wish I would not specialize the CreateChildCommand. Can I
specialize the CreateChildAction and do something?

Thank you,

Asha R.

Asha,

I suppose you could, yes. Specializing the command ensures that your
changes work in any editor that uses your object, but I suppose that
might not matter to you.
