I have a plugin where I have a function behind a the F12-functionkey.
When I hit the F12-key in the editor, a yellow box comes up where I have to choose between the Eclipse-function behind F12 (activate editor) and my own function behind F12.
What are the exact steps I have to take to have only my own function behind the F12-key (so when I hit it it performs my function).

Ps. I already tried this :
- install Eclipse Helios clean
- go to the Preferences, General, Keys ... Sort on "Binding" ... and use the "Unbind Command" on the F12-binding (activate editor)
- close Eclipse
- drop my plugin-jar into the dropins directory
- startup Eclipse again
I see that my plugin in installed, but the F12-key does nothing ... whereas when I run the plugin project out of my development-environment the F12-key works (but with two choices as said above).

Can somebody help me ? ... and instruct me step-by-step how to handle this !?

Thanks !!

PS. I also found strange behaviour when I have my own function behind the Alt-F1 key ... it performs my function, and when it's thru ... the help-window is displayed ... very strange.
