following situation: I created a new view "myView". I also created a corresponding action "showMyView" (objectContribution over org.eclipse.ui.popupMenus-ExtensionPoint).

I would like to know how to automatically display "myView" after clicking the "showMyView"-action (so NOT over Window -> Show View -> Other... -> MyView).

Thanks in advance and best regards,
stoehm Smile

Hi stoehm,

you can use
PlatformUI.getWorkbench().getActiveWorkbenchWindow().getActi vePage().showView( "view-id");
to open a view programmatically.

Cheers Adrian
