Hi,

I would like to have some informations on defaults preferences in RAP.
In RCP, we can add a preferences file(.ini) to set the defaults
preferences by customizing the product as shown here :
http://help.eclipse.org/stable/index.jsp?topic=/org.eclipse. platform.doc.isv/guide/product_configproduct.htm
My question is how can we add defaults preferences in a RAP application.

Maghen.

Maghen,

a preference initializer can also be used to set defaults. Note that
in RAP this mechanism is intended to set defaults for session-scoped
preferences.

<extension
point="org.eclipse.core.runtime.preferences">
<initializer class="MyInitializer"></initializer>
</extension>

Hi Rüdiger,
Thanks for replying. In fact, I would like to define preferences on the
perspective bar(to put it on the topRight, show the text, etc..).
But I will use a preference initializer to see how it works.

Hi Rüdiger,

I've used a preferences initializer to set the location of the perspective
bar and to show or not the "open perspective" button but it does not work.
How can i set preferences on the perspective bar in RAP?
Thanks you for helping me.

Maghen,

my previous post might have been misleading. The preference
initializer is only meant to set defaults for the plug-in that it is
defined in. Thus it is only called if you access the preferences of
the plug-in.
As RAP does not know about products, the options are becoming
sparse. You may consider directly setting the preferences of the
workbench plug-in programmatically.

Rüdiger,

First of all thank you for replying. Yes, I've understood what a
preference initializer does now. In fact I thought there was something to
add options like in RCP, we can add them via the "pluginCustomization"
when we define a product.
So I will try to do it programmatically then (but I won't try it until
wednesday).
Thank you for your time for the explanation and have a great week end over
there!

Hi,

I just post to help people if they want to put default preferences on
their RAP application, it's better to do it in a programmatic way.
If we want to customize something which need to be loaded at the
initialization of the application (for example, if we do not want to see
the "Open Perspective" button at the initialization of the application).
Just put your code before the application is totally launched. Me i've
done the loading of preferences in my WorkbenchAdvisor class.

By the way, thanks you Rüdiger for helping me!

Maghen.
