  • Method Details

    • registerContextMenu

      void registerContextMenu(String menuId, MenuManager menuManager, ISelectionProvider selectionProvider)
      Registers a pop-up menu with a particular id for extension.

      Within the workbench one plug-in may extend the pop-up menus for a view or editor within another plug-in. In order to be eligible for extension, the menu must be registered by calling registerContextMenu. Once this has been done the workbench will automatically insert any action extensions which exist.

      A unique menu id must be provided for each registered menu. This id should be published in the Javadoc for the page.

      Any pop-up menu which is registered with the workbench should also define a GroupMarker in the registered menu with id IWorkbenchActionConstants.MB_ADDITIONS. Other plug-ins will use this group as a reference point for insertion. The marker should be defined at an appropriate location within the menu for insertion.

      menuId - the menu id
      menuManager - the menu manager
      selectionProvider - the selection provider
