Hello everyone,

I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask, however the other news
groups seem to be even less likely the right places. ;-)

Does anyone know, how I can access the value of a ComboFieldEditor's
selected entry name?

In my MyPreferencePage class I add the ComboFieldEditor in the
createFieldEditors() method:
String[][] comboValues = {{"Name A", "org.example.ConnectorA"}};
// P_CONNECTOR = "connector"
addField(new ComboFieldEditor(MyPreferenceConstants.P_CONNECTOR,
comboValues, getFieldEditorParent()));

Setting the connector in the combo box to "Name A" this String gets stored
in the PreferenceStore, but not "org.example.ConnectorA" as I'd expect.

In another class of my plug-in I need to get the value of the name-value
pair I handed into the constructor of the ComboFieldEditor:
String value = Activator.getDefault().getPreferenceStore().getString(
However, this call returns the name "Name A" of the name-value pair.

Any ideas how it can be achieved that the value of the name-value pair is
stored in the PreferenceStore?

Thanks for reading and helping!
