Hello everyone,

Is there anyway to add a button to one of the tools bars or to hook them up to a shortcut key?

Just looking for someway to move them out of the External Tools drop down menu.

Thanks!

In which context do you want to do this?

For doing it in your own plugin, please read the documentation/tutorials about commands. There should be described everything about this topic...

A good starting point I can recommend are the Eclipse RPC tutorial and the Command tutorial from Lars Vogel (the latter you find here: http://www.vogella.de/articles/EclipseCommands/article.html), or the book Eclipse plugins from Clayberg/Rubel.

You mean you have created a specific external tool launch config (ant
runMyFile.xml for example) and now you'd like an easy way to execute that?

There is a "Run Last Launched External Tool" command that could be bound
to a key of your choosing, if you just want an easy way to re-execute
one external tool.

You can also assign a key binding to open the external tools dialog
(which is easy to select a config and launch it).
