Customize E4 Message when workspace is in use [message #1722615] Sat, 06 February 2016 23:02 Go to next message

Hello there,

when developing an E4 application that uses also a workspace, it seems to be possible to only start one application at a time. Each time when trying to start a second instance, some error dialog is opened.

My question would be, whether it is possible to customize the message within this error dialog as this message is rather unspecific for our customers.

Is this somehow possible?

Many thanks in advance,
Stefan

Stefan,

I performed a search in the source code for the Title of the window, and I found title and message are defined in the "message.properties" of the "org.eclipse.ui.ide" project

So, I think the easy way is just to edit the text in the message.properties . See image below

Regards
Patrik

Hello,

thanks for your fast answer.

This is unfortunately not the messages, i am talking about. In out pure E4 application, the mentioned plugin is not even existing within out Target Platform.

Its more a "Workspace can not b locked" messages etc pp

Thanks,
Stefan

Stefan,

I am sure it is possible, but I can't search your source code. You have to find yourself the class responsible for the message, intercept the dialog open and change the message text.

IIUC this is a startup dialog - If so you can not use the Eclipse Spies to find the responsible class.

So my suggestion is to do the same I did: search for the exact string in source code, find the plugin responsible for this, and edit the plugin source.

You could also ask on IRC or Mattermost.

Regards.
