Re: [eclipse-pmc] API Request for additional method in MessageDialog

I'm 0 on this as is it not really urgent/critical for 4.7.

Sent by:        eclipse-pmc-bounces@xxxxxxxxxxx


on behave of David Weiser I would like to ask for permission to add
API to MessageDialog.


The change adds the following method to MethodDialog:

public static int open(int kind, Shell parent, String title, String
message, int style,
           String... dialogButtonLabels) {

The method itself has 4 lines of code.


This method is required to continue the usage of verbs in Dialogs
instead of OK, as several of the existing dialogs use the existing
open method using the SWT.SHEET style and we do not want to change

I believe the risk of this new API is minimal.
