I am developing an eclipse RCP application. My requirement is like I just want to override some of the keys like CTRL+N & CTRL+S . At the same time I want to keep all the other short keys working as by default.If I define my own key only for these new two short cut keys no other eclipse shortcut keys works.

Hello Nitika Doomra,

could you please tell us how you are defining those shortcuts?
Are you using the org.eclipse.ui.bindings extension point in the plugin.xml or what exactly have you done?

Best regards,

Simon

Hi Simon,
yes ,I am using org.eclipse.bindings extension point for creating shortcut key.
In plugin.xml :
<key
sequence="CTRL+N"
commandId="MYCOMMAND"
contextId="org.eclipse.ui.contexts.window"
schemeId="org.eclipse.ui.defaultAcceleratorConfiguration"

>
</key>
as CTRL +N is predefined shortcut key for new project in windows too.
So presently a yellow color area appearing in my Application asking for the choice between new project and my command.
I just wanted to override CTrl+N to just directly open my command only.However at the same time all other shortkeys of eclipse for my Application should work normally.

Regards,
Nitika

When you create your command/handler and assign the key binding of CTRL+N, you will give the key binding a context. You can define a new context and set the parent context to be org.eclipse.ui.contexts.window. This way you will still inherit all of the standard bindings but you can override the ones you want.

I found the solution to my problem by creating a new scheme and its parent org.eclipse.ui.defaultAcceleratorConfiguration. There by it will overwrite only the keys I have defined in my scheme and rest as it was earlier.
one more change is required that is in customization.ini file:
org.eclipse.ui/KEY_CONFIGURATION_ID= the Id of my new scheme .
Everything is running as required.
Thank you all!

Regards,
Nitika
