    @Deprecated
    public class OpenPerspectiveMenu
    extends PerspectiveMenu
    Deprecated.
    See IWorkbench.showPerspective methods.
    A menu for window creation in the workbench.

    An OpenPerspectiveMenu is used to populate a menu with actions that will open a new perspective. If the user selects one of these items either a new page is added to the workbench, a new workbench window is created with the chosen perspective or the current perspective will be replaced with the new onw.

    The visible perspectives within the menu may also be updated dynamically to reflect user preference.

    The input for the page is determined by the value of pageInput. The input should be passed into the constructor of this class or set using the setPageInput method.

    This class may be instantiated; it is not intended to be subclassed.

    Restriction:
    This class is not intended to be subclassed by clients.
