Loading IMAGES into a "fragment" project [message #48936] Wed, 12 March 2003 23:42 Go to next message

Originally posted by: notvalid.hotmail.com

Hi,
I am unsure of how to get images to load in to my fragment project. I
used to use a method that would create a "plugin" instance and with it get
the resource information to create a URL, which I could create an image
from.
But, now that I'm creating a "fragment" and not a "plugin", I can't
instantiate a plugin to get my workspace URL info.

There must be a simple way to access the images in my "icons" directory,
without requiring all these methods. One would think it would be one
line...

thanks for the help

This should be asked on the eclipse.tools newsgroup for more eyes on it.

However I am unsure what you mean loading a fragment and not having
access to the plugin. A fragment is part of a plugin. Fragments only
exist with plugins.

What reason are you using the fragment for?

You have two choices,

1) use resource loading. This means you need to declare a <library> entry
in your fragment.xml to add the icons dir onto the classpath and then use a
dir structure that mirrors some package structure

2) use Plugin.find() to do the trick. As Peter pointed out, fragments just
add content to a plugin and are seamlessly merged into the base plugin of
the fragment.
