Why GEF uses its own GEFMessages, not the WorkbenchMessage? [message #176685] Mon, 11 April 2005 18:40 Go to next message

Hi,

WorkbenchMessages and GEFMessages have some common message, e.g.
"Workbench.copyToolTip" and "GEFMessages.CopyAction_Tooltip".

I want to see if there is any special reason why GEF does not use the
Workbench on and create its own set. I am going to use the
WorkbenchMessages only as GEF does not have cut action.

Thanks,

Kevin.

Because WorkbenchMessages is internal.

Also, I think all the constants defined in there are new. I don't think
they were there for 3.0. I could be mistaken. Anyway, this is certainly
something GEF could look into. The only problem is that it's internal, but
maybe translations (and related bugs) are a good enough reason to make use
of internal API.

GEFMessages is in the org.eclipse.gef.internal too. I don't see it is a
good reason why GEFMessage is used, instead of the
org.eclipse.ui.internal.WorkbenchMessages.

That's our internal package vs. someone else's over which we have no

Hi Randy,

In that case, why don't you provide a complete set of actions strings then?
For example, I need to implement the Cut Action, but GEFMessages only has
copy and paste. I need to use the WorkbenchMessages one.

Actually, why is the WorkbenchMessages from someone else? Is it from
Eclipse too?

Thanks,

Kevin

We only provide strings that we need. Otherswise, where would it end?
