Custom welcome page defaults to standby mode? [message #299831] Sat, 25 February 2006 00:38 Go to next message

Originally posted by:

I have defined my own product and my own intro/intro config. Everything
works fine except that when Eclipse is initially started with my custom
perspective, the Welcome page is opened in the standby mode rather than
the full mode. I've searched the docs and these newsgroups but haven't
seen a way to specify this within the plugin.xml

I've even tried to force the mode into full mode by calling the
following code from within my perspective:

//Make sure the Welcome Page initially starts in full mode
IIntroManager introMgr = PlatformUI.getWorkbench().getIntroManager();
IIntroPart intro = introMgr.getIntro();
if (introMgr.isIntroStandby(intro))
introMgr.setIntroStandby(intro, false);

I've used the debugger to verify that it is trying to change the state
to full mode but it doesn't actually work. Not sure what's going on.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Well, the question was made in 2006, so my answer may not apply to the Eclipse version of that time.

For Eclipse Juno,
you need to add 'org.eclipse.e4.ui.workbench.addons.swt' to the dependencies of your plugin.xml and 'Add Required Plug-ins' in the 'Run Configuration'.
Then you will see your intro in full mode, even without calling the 'IIntroManager'.
