When generating a GMF RCP application, the only item in the Window-menu is
"Open in New Window".

Is there a way to get the "Preferences" item too?

Thanks in advance,
Peter

Hi Alex,

thanks for your reply.

Is there a workaround you could suggest?

Best regards, Peter

Hello Peter,

You can manually modify generated ActionBarAdvisor using WorkbenchActionBuilder
as an example (openPreferencesAction ?)

Now that was almost too easy - thanks a lot, Alex :)

In generated DiagramEditorActionBarAdvisor add the following:

protected void makeActions(IWorkbenchWindow window) {
[...]
// add:
register(ActionFactory.PREFERENCES.create(window));
}


protected void fillMenuBar(IMenuManager menu) {
[...]
menuX.add(getAction(ActionFactory.OPEN_NEW_WINDOW.getId()));

// add:
menuX.add(new Separator());
menuX.add(getAction(ActionFactory.PREFERENCES.getId()));
[...]
}

It even works with adding these items into .gmfgen-file, but after
regenerating .gmfgen from .gmfmap the changes are lost again.

Not sure if this is the expected behavior?

Hello Peter,

> Not sure if this is the expected behavior?
You can file a request asking to correctly merge existing .gmfgen model with
one produced by map->gen transformation in this case.
