Modifying the behavior of the internal web browser [message #522616] Tue, 23 March 2010 06:40 Go to next message

Hi,

I am developing a little plugin which analyzes some models and then it
generates a simple HTML report. This report is then opened within the
internal web browser of Eclipse.

I would like to add some links in the report that will open the
corresponding model files in an Eclipse editor (EPF Composer).

Is it possible somehow to tweak the internal browser (e.g. by
subclassing) so that clicking a certain link opens an Eclipse editor
instead of displaying the linked local file in the browser?

In case this is not feasible, are there alternatives to achieve the same
result?

Hi Patrick,

If you have a handle to the Browser then you do this by adding a
LocationListener to it, and in your LocationListener.changing()
implementation, setting event.doit to false and performing your alternate
action instead. Using LocationListener.changing() to do something like this
is demonstrated in
http://dev.eclipse.org/viewcvs/index.cgi/org.eclipse.swt.sni ppets/src/org/eclipse/swt/snippets/Snippet327.java?view=co .

If you're using Eclipse's Internal Web Browser view (I wasn't sure from your
description if this was the case) then you should see if you can either get
at its underlying Browser (in which case you can use the approach above), or
if not, see if it sends any events corresponding to the Browser's
LocationListener.changing().

HTH,
Grant

Cheatsheets and the local help allows executing commands within eclipse
(by dealing with them in a servlet, I would imagine).

You'll see the links in Help>Help Contents as
"javascript:executeCommand(...)"

It's pretty easy to start a Jetty instance from within eclipse and host
a servlet for communications, and ICommandService/IHandlerService can be
used to execute a command programmatically.
