Enabling keys in Graph Editor [message #179665] Fri, 29 April 2005 09:15 Go to next message

Hi,
I am building a Graph Editor, to represent network elements.
Accelerator keys dont seem to be working for the edit operations specified
in the Editor's ActionBarContribution class.
I dont know if there is any thing specific that needs to be done to enable
the keys. The copy and paste actions extend WorkbenchPartAction. The
accelerator has been set for the actions.

Thanks in advance

Regards
Ayesha

You need to add RetargetActions in buildActions() in the
ActionBarContributor. ActionFactory.COPY/PASTE.create(). Your copy and
paste actions should be in your editor's ActionRegistry.

Yes, I have added RetargetActions in buildActions in the
ActionBarContributor.

RetargetAction copy = new
RetargetAction(ActionFactory.COPY.getId(),GEFMessages.CopyAc tion_Label);

copy.setImageDescriptor(WorkbenchImages.getImageDescriptor(I SharedImages.IMG
_TOOL_COPY));

copy.setDisabledImageDescriptor(WorkbenchImages.getImageDesc riptor(ISharedIm
ages.IMG_TOOL_COPY_DISABLED));
copy.setToolTipText(GEFMessages.CopyAction_Tooltip);


In the fillActionBars method in the class extending WorkbenchAdvisor, to the
editMenu I have added the line,

editMenu.add(ActionFactory.COPY.create(window));

In the editor class I have added the following lines :
getActionRegistry().registerAction(copy);
getActionRegistry().registerAction(paste);

The keys are not enabled yet.

Although this seems fine, you should probably use
ActionFactory.COPY.create().

You shouldn't be doing this. The copy action's already in the edit menu.

I hope these are the actual copy/paste actions and not the retarget actions.

Thanks for your help. I realised that while creating the edit actions, I
have not added the line to
register the action globally. After doing this, the keys are enabled.

IAction undoAction = ActionFactory.UNDO.create(window);
editMenu.add(undoAction);
configurer.registerGlobalAction(undoAction);
