Hello Folks,

I have developed a plug-in for doing copy-Paste feature to copy and paste a particular Object. It is a seperate plug-in. Both Copy and Paste are associated with a View that is contributed by a different plug-in.

So, in short to mention the Plug-in details.

Copy/Paste contributed by com.a.b --> Seperate.
View is provided by com.c.d ->> Seperate

I have used Eclipse copy/paste actions..i.e org.eclipse.ui.copyaction and org.eclipse.ui.pasteaction. I have contributed a pop-up menu Extensions mentioning the action IDs.
Basically Copy/paste works fine,but I want to enable and disable the actions based on the Clipboard contents.

I have written the code in selectionChanged() event of the action class. It's getting fired only when this plug-in is loaded. Until then, the paste action is enabled eventhough there is no relevant data to be pasted.

Now I want to disable it when the Eclipse is launced.

Could anyone of you pls help me with this problem.

Thanks in Advance,
Dhinesh.M

Dhinesh,

to control the enablement of an action before its defining plug-in is
loaded, you can use its "enablement" element. Is that what you are
looking for?

It seems that you are working on an RCP application and therefore are
better off asking this on the eclipse.rcp or eclipse.platform newsgroup
[1]. Please continue this discussion on one of these newsgroups.
