Hello Community,

the subtitle show it up:

My aim is it to find out (from source code), which CSS Theme is the current selected one (Very important is just: "No theme" or NOT "No theme"). Second aim is to add a listener to CSSTheme-Change, if it is possible.

I tried out accessing the specific information from preferences, but without success. Have you an idea or it is possible?

Thanks in advice Smile

Best regards, Erik

Hi Erik,

We have an example in the CSS properties view ({oep} We use the following "PreferenceObservableValue", which implements the JFace IObservableValue for an IPreferenceStore: (From {oep}

IPreferenceStore store = new ScopedPreferenceStore(InstanceScope.INSTANCE, storeName);
IObservableValue preferenceObservable = new PreferencesObservableValue(propertyPath, store);
Object currentValue = preferenceObservable.getValue()

The Observable returns a String value (Which is the ID of the CSS Theme). You can retrieve the Theme object with the following code:

String themeID = (String)preferenceObservable.getValue();
Theme theme = ThemeManager.instance.getTheme(themeID);

if (theme == ThemeManager.EmptyTheme.instance){
	//Do something
