PreferencePages [message #18309] Fri, 30 November 2007 09:36 Go to next message

Hi,

I'm actually trying to programm some preference pages that define the editor
colors und font style, but I'm
not able to update the new changes without restarting eclipse itself. I want
to update the editor style and e.g. change
some symbol colors by pushing the "Ok" button, is this possible ?

My Ok button code in the preference page looks at the moment like this, but
it want work

public boolean performOk() {

try {

preferences.save();

EditorsUI.useAnnotationsPreferencePage(preferences);
EditorsUI.useQuickDiffPreferencePage(preferences);
TMPreferenceConstants.initializeDefaultValues(preferences);

} catch ( Exception e ) {
e.printStackTrace();
}

return super.performOk();
}


Thanks for help !
Sebastian

you shouldn't have to override 'performOk' in order to get this to work.

take a look at any of the individual language toolkit
implementatations of the AbstractConfigurationBlockPreferencePage and
AbstractScriptEditorColoringConfigurationBlock classes.

also, since you're asking dev type questions, you might be better off
posting these to the dltk mailing list: dltk-dev@eclipse.org

Hum, now that you mention it, I was wondering about that: What are
"dev-type questions"? Should questions of developers that are making
their own DLTK-based IDE be placed here in the newsgroup, or in the
mailing list?
The newsgroup is the one that seems to be used more often, and I
personally think it's a better medium than a mailing list, but what is
the official stance (if any) ?

i actually think you'll get better responses on the mailing list then
here. (and i personally don't check this group as often as i do my
mail).

you should definately subscribe if you're developing a plugin - i try
to post there when i add some new piece of functionality, especially
one that could disrupt others using the core framework.

for instance, the ability to have a project specific debugging engine
is now possible in the head. at the moment i'm splitting my time
between allowing 'general' debugging options to be configured on a per
language/project basis instead of globally and making workspace/context
menu improvements so there is a more consistent feel between all the
dltk languages and the jdt.

I am already subscribed (so I don't miss out anything :P ), but I would
prefer for the NG to be used. It would also be similar the other Eclipse
projects, but it's not a big issue anyways.
