Hi,

I'd like to use a MRU list of recently opened editors to the file menu of my RCP application.
I found some samples
( http://www.eclipse.org/forums/index.php?t=tree&th=141135 &)
(eclipse-sourceBuild-srcIncluded-3.6\src\plugins\org.eclipse .ui.ide\src\org\eclipse\ui\internal\ide\WorkbenchActionBuild er.java)

but they create a new menu:
MenuManager fileMenu = new MenuManager(
"&File", IWorkbenchActionConstants.M_FILE );

But how can I add to a File menu that is defined in plugin.xml in
ApplicationActionBarAdvisor.fillMenuBar(IMenuManager) ?
Would that be with findMenuUsingPath?

Thanks,
Juergen

if it was defined as a CompoundContribution that could work from a
<dynamic/> entry, you could add it with XML. But there are a lot of
items not you converted from action based to command based. In that
case (and I believe this is one of them) you would either have to
convert it yourself or use your ActionBarAdvisor to fill in a skeletal
File menu.

Any news if the MRU has been ported to commands?

Do you mean org.eclipse.ui.actions.ContributionItemFactory.REOPEN_EDITORS ? You could always host that in a <dynamic /> menu contribution ... check out the extension point description for org.eclipse.ui.menus.
