Class WizardActionGroup


public final class WizardActionGroup extends ActionGroup
Populates context menus with shortcut actions for defined wizards. Wizards may be defined by any of the following extension points:
  • org.eclipse.ui.newWizards
  • org.eclipse.ui.importWizards
  • org.eclipse.ui.exportWizards

Here are the required steps for using this feature correctly:

  1. Declare all new/import/export wizards from the extension points above, or locate the existing wizards that you intend to reuse.
  2. Declare org.eclipse.ui.navigator.navigatorContent/commonWizard elements to identify which wizards should be associated with what items in your viewer or navigator.
  3. If you are using Resources in your viewer and have bound the resource extension declared in org.eclipse.ui.navigator.resources, then you will get most of this functionality for free.
  4. Otherwise, you may choose to build your own custom menu. In which case, you may instantiate this class, and hand it the menu or submenu that you want to list out the available wizard shortcuts via fillContextMenu(IMenuManager).
