Hiding/Preventing editor popup menu items [message #289117] Fri, 29 July 2005 15:12 Go to next message

I have implemented a couple of editors by extending the eclipse TextEditor.
My problem is that since Eclipse 3.1, the editor popup menu (right-click
within editor part) shows a couple of new menu items: "Run as..." and "Debug
as...".
However, these items are not really appropriate for my editor since there is
nothing to run or debug.
Investigating further reveals that these are object contributions from the
debug UI plugin and have been registered for the Object class (how
helpful!)- i.e., there's no escaping them.
Is there any way to prevent these popup menu items from being displayed?
Would IContributorResourceAdapter be of any use?

TIA,
Sunil

There are two options of which I am aware.

In your particular case, you can register the context menu using
EditorSite.registerContextMenu(MenuManager,ISelectionProvide r,boolean) or
EditorSite.registerContextMenu(String,MenuManager,ISelection Provider,boolean).
If you pass "false" as the "includeEditorInput" parameter, then the "Run
as..." and "Debug as..." items should disappear. However, I'm not sure how
you would control this is you were subclassing TextEditor. You'd have to
ask the Platform/Text guys (possibly by filing a bug)....

The other way is to use Capabilities (née Activites). These can be used to
filter out menu items based on their ID. The only problem is that this
would also filter out these menu items from other editors. If it still
interests you, I'd recommend looking at the "org.eclipse.ui.activities"
extension point.



cheers,
d.

This cannot be done for a text editor since the context menu is registered
in the AbstractTextEditor.createPartControl().
I tried it for a non-text editor (I also have a GEF editor which has the
same problem) and setting includeEditorInput to false had no effect.
The Run as.. and Debug as.. still show up.

I misspoke. The Run as... and Debug as... did indeed disappear- as did other
context menu items which I wanted to appear.
So this is an all-or-nothing solution.
I don't understand why the Debug plugin has a context menu contribution to
the Object class- it is just too sweeping a generalization.

Then I would suggest filing a bug with Platform/Debug.

I'm also trying to hide/prevent the "Run As, Debug As, Team..." popup menu items from my specialization of TextEditor. Is there any current advice as to how to do this?

Cameron.

It looks like no one has solved this problem. Now I can give the standard answer.
Just add the code below into your editor.
	@Override
	protected boolean isEditorInputIncludedInContextMenu() {
		return false;
	}
