How to read Preferences from the Editor [message #446256] Mon, 22 November 2004 18:54 Go to next message

I am new at Plugin Development for Eclipse, so pardon me if I am asking
a trivial question.

I am trying to develop an editor plugin. I started with the Preference
Wizard. It created a structure simular to:

editors/editor.java
....
preferences/PreferencePage.java


Both my editor and my preference page are working correctly.

My question is how to read the PreferencePage from the editor class?
I can call getPreferenceStore from my editor class, but my preference
does not seem to be there. Also the preference was created using a
ColorFieldEditor, but IPreferenceStore does not have method to read
Color.

I have read a lot of documentation (which is excellent) but I must have
missed something somewhere :-(

Thanks

You should ask this on the eclipse.platform newsgroup.
