Handler status evaluation with invalid selection resolution [message #1403042] Sun, 20 July 2014 16:10

I am currently trying to migrate a 3.x eclipse IDE plug-in to 4.x.
As it is currently not possible to write e4 plug-ins for the IDE, I want to be as close enough as possible to e4 development.
Unfortunately, in general this means we have to stay with 3.x development Smile

So as far as I know, we also have to cope with 3.x handler specifications with activeWhen and enabledWhen in the plugin.xml, but then the following faulty behavior occurs:

1. Select a file---e.g. in the package explorer---which should enable/active a handler -> The command buttons in the toolbar and the handlers will not be enabled/active
2. Select any other artifact in another view part
3. Reselecting the file of step 1 -> All handlers get enabled/active as declared

Is there any possibility to get rid of this delayed enablement of handlers? This behavior is only observable in e4 IDEs.
Any ideas to get compatible again?
