Launch Configuration Tabs

Identifier:
org.eclipse.debug.ui.launchConfigurationTabs

Since:
3.3

Description:
This extension point is to contribute launch configuration tabs (one or more) to an existing launch configuration tab group.

Configuration Markup:

<!ELEMENT extension (tab)+>

<!ATTLIST extension

point CDATA #REQUIRED

>


<!ELEMENT tab (placement? , associatedDelegate*)>

<!ATTLIST tab

id    CDATA #REQUIRED

group IDREF #REQUIRED

name  CDATA #REQUIRED

class CDATA #REQUIRED

>

describes an individual launch configuration tab contribution



<!ELEMENT placement EMPTY>

<!ATTLIST placement

after CDATA #REQUIRED

>

This element allows contributors to specify relative locale for their contributed tab



<!ELEMENT associatedDelegate EMPTY>

<!ATTLIST associatedDelegate

delegate IDREF #REQUIRED

>

This attribute is used to map a contrinbuted tab to one or more launch delegates. This allows tabs to be filtered from the launch dialog based on what launch delegate is selected as the current default. For example, if two plug-ins contribute launch delegates and tabs for the same launch mode, only one set of tabs will be displayed to the user based on the enabled delegate chosen by the user.



Examples:
The following example adds the tab "FooTab" to the local java application launch tab group.


<extension point="org.eclipse.debug.ui.launchConfigurationTabs">
    <tab
       class="org.eclipse.jdt.debug.ui.launchConfigurations.FooTab"
        group="org.eclipse.jdt.debug.ui.launchConfigurationTabGroup.localJavaApplication"
        id="org.eclipse.jdt.debug.ui.fooTab"
        name="Foo Tab">
    </tab>
 </extension> 

Supplied Implementation:
The debug platform provides two abstract classes that clients should subclass when implementing launch tabs. See AbstractLaunchConfigurationTab and AbstractOptionLaunchConfigurationTab in package org.eclipse.debug.ui.
