Re: [platform-ui-dev] Emojis in menu label

Very cool.

I have tried to copy some emojis from here [1] to for example notepad and word. But they show up in black and white there as well.

In some properties file (such as org.eclipse.ui.ide/src/org/eclipse/ui/internal/ide/ which contains a menu label (such as Workbench_buildClean = Clea&n...), copy a cool emoji (such as 🚿) into the label. The .properties editor is smart enough to convert it to a compatible encoding ( Workbench_buildClean = \uD83D\uDEBFClea&n... ), and try. Congrats, you now have a native icon provided by your OS for your action in your menu ;)
