We are sorting ToC's in Eclipse help by providing helpData.xml given in the branding plugin (product plugin).

This work properly for static help data (and we have some help plugins that are static help). However there is requirement to dynamically group two top-level help plugins into a single root node. In order to do this we are using the extension point to create Eclipse help ToC dynamically - Using ToCProvider - "eclipse.org/eclipse/platform-ua/documents/providers_api.html" and "help.eclipse.org/galileo/index.jsp?topic=/org.eclipse.platform.doc.isv/reference/api/org/eclipse/help/AbstractTocProvider.html"

However when providing it using ToCProvider, the newly created help node is always displaying at the end.

Is there any way to sort the ToC's (maybe providing a Comparator kind of class?)

Hello Suresh

When creating the help dynamically you can control the order of the contributions as well as the order of the TOC. As as far as I know there is no out of the box comparator for TOC.
As the example from http://eclipse.org/eclipse/platform-ua/documents/providers_api.html is using IToc interface, note that there is also IToc2 interface starting with Eclipse 3.5 that Quote:
extends IToc by adding methods to support functionality for criteria, topic sorting and custom icons
although it seems that sorting is done only alphabetically.


Time is what you make of it.
