Missing Arguments Tab? [message #1385846] Wed, 11 June 2014 15:40 Go to next message

Hello,

I am at the 'Hello World' phase of learning to program. I am using a book that teaches ellipse. I have been successful in making the Hello World program but not successful in making Hello <args> program yet.

In creating a Hello World with args the book shows an 'Arguments' tab along the top of eclipse. In fact, the book shows tabs for Main, Arguments, JRE, Source, Environment, Common.

In my version of Eclipse, which is likely much newer than the book's example, I only have one tab 'Hello.java'.

As a result, I cannot put in data in the arguments tab since I don't see an arguments tab.

I have searched Eclipse through and through trying to find it. Please help!

thanks tons!

You specify arguments via a Launch Configuration. The book is probably showing the dialog that is used to view/edit them. Read more about them in the Eclipse Help.
