extension passing messages to e4 UI, how to? [message #577719] Tue, 15 June 2010 11:05

Now that I have the extension mechanism working :) I would like to add the ability for my extension to call back to the e4 UI that provides the extension point with messages for display in the e4 UI. The extension I have will run long running processes and I would like to have status messages passed back into a scrolling window in the e4 UI.

It looks like I can add a handler in the e4 UI I have, but cannot see a way to call this from the extension and could not find any example of calls in the this direction. The e4 UI uses Runnable to call the extension, is there a preferred way of setting up a callback to exercise the handler in the e4 UI?
