Default main menu items in RCP app [message #1074474] Fri, 26 July 2013 22:10

If one creates the simple "Hello RCP" app using the basic wizard in
Eclipse, it creates a simple window with "Hello RCP" as the title of
the "window" that it creates. However, the main menu bar is named
"SWT" and has two menu items "Run" and "Search". I figured out
(through some painful searches and experiments) how to set up my own
menus and items, but it isn't clear how to programmatically remove
these other menus/items. They get set somewhere in the bowels of the
RCP setup but it isn't immediately obvious where (and of course it
isn't documented).

Moreover, the main menubar title is "SWT". Again, it isn't clear how
to get rid of this (or change it to my own title - changing the value
in the product file doesn't work). I found one article that proposed
dealing with it for standalone SWT apps renaming the shell

BUt he blithely says that it works fine in RCP apps. Unfortunately
this is not true as checking out innumerable tutorials shows. I've
even seen some "production" RCP apps that say 'SWT' on the main menu
bar. I've yet to come across a RCP app that has it's own name on the
main menu bar (not the client window, the main menu bar or window).

Anyone know how this might be done?
