How to open console and problems view while running a job [message #896602] Thu, 19 July 2012 06:11 Go to next message

Hi,

I am using the below code to open the console view,

try {
PlatformUI.getWorkbench().getActiveWorkbenchWindow().getActivePage().showView(IConsoleConstants.ID_CONSOLE_VIEW);
} catch (PartInitException ex) {
ex.printStackTrace();
}
But I get a NullPointerException since getActiveWorkbenchWindow() method returns null for a non ui thread.

Is there a way to open the console and problems view from within a job,

Thanks,
Latha

Hi Latha,

use the UIJob or call the code in (a)syncExec as follows
Display.getDefault().(a)syncExec(new Runnable() {

    public void run() {
        try {
            PlatformUI.getWorkbench().getActiveWorkbenchWindow().getActivePage().showView(IConsoleConstants.ID_CONSOLE_VIEW);
        } catch (PartInitException ex) {
            ex.printStackTrace();
        }
    }
});

Hi Jan,

Thanks for your answer.

Is there a way to get the view without using PlatformUI?

I found that a console view could be shown/open without using PlatformUI like in the below link http://wiki.eclipse.org/FAQ_How_do_I_write_to_the_console_from_a_plug-in%3F
but wanted to know if I could do a similar one to open Problems view.

Thanks,
Latha
