Action Definitions

This extension point is deprecated

Identifier:
org.eclipse.ui.actionDefinitions

Since:
2.0

Description:

WARNING: This extension point is DEPRECATED.
Do not use this extension point, it will be removed in future versions of this product. Instead, use the extension point org.eclipse.ui.commands

This extension point is used to register action definitions. Accelerators (see the Accelerator Sets extension point) use action definitions to reference actions. An action associates itself with a given accelerator by registering with that accelerator's associated action definition. An action registers itself with an action definition by calling the setActionDefinitionId(String id) method and supplying the action definition's id as an argument.

      <actionDefinition 
        id="org.eclipse.ui.file.save"> 
      </actionDefinition> 
      <actionDefinition 
        id="org.eclipse.ui.file.saveAll"> 
      </actionDefinition> 
      <actionDefinition 
        id="org.eclipse.ui.file.close"> 
      </actionDefinition> 
      <actionDefinition 
        id="org.eclipse.ui.file.closeAll"> 
      </actionDefinition> 
      <actionDefinition 
        id="org.eclipse.ui.file.print"> 
      </actionDefinition> 
   </extension>
