Field Detail

APP_NAME

static final 
String APP_NAME
The SWT application name, used to initialize the SWT Display.

This value is used to refer to the application in .XDefaults files on X server based window systems such as Motif.

To obtain a human-readable name for the product, use IProduct.getName().

Display.setAppName(java.lang.String), Constant Field Values

ABOUT_TEXT

static final 
String ABOUT_TEXT
The text to show in an "about" dialog for this product. Products designed to run "headless" typically would not have such text.

See Also:
Constant Field Values

ABOUT_IMAGE

static final 
String ABOUT_IMAGE
An image which can be shown in an "about" dialog for this product. Products designed to run "headless" typically would not have such an image.

The value is either a fully qualified valid URL or a path relative to the product's defining bundle.

A full-sized product image (no larger than 500x330 pixels) is shown without the "aboutText" blurb. A half-sized product image (no larger than 250x330 pixels) is shown with the "aboutText" blurb beside it.

See Also:
Constant Field Values

PREFERENCE_CUSTOMIZATION

static final 
String PREFERENCE_CUSTOMIZATION
A file for customizing default preference values for a product. The value is interpreted as either a URL or a bundle-relative path by the runtime. This is not referenced from the workbench.

The contents must be the same format as a Properties file with the key/value pairs being:

 qualifier/key=value
 
Where qualifier is typically the bundle id.

See Also:
Constant Field Values

WINDOW_IMAGE

static final 
String WINDOW_IMAGE
Deprecated. use WINDOW_IMAGES instead (see recommendations there)
An image to be used as the window icon for this product (16x16). Products designed to run "headless" typically would not have such an image.

The value is either a fully qualified valid URL or a path relative to the product's defining bundle.

If the WINDOW_IMAGES property is given, then it supercedes this one.

See Also:
Constant Field Values

WINDOW_IMAGES

static final 
String WINDOW_IMAGES
An array of one or more images to be used for this product. The expectation is that the array will contain the same image rendered at different sizes (16x16 and 32x32). Products designed to run "headless" typically would not have such images.

The value is a comma-separated list of paths, where each path is either a fully qualified valid URL or a path relative to the product's defining bundle.

If this property is given, then it supercedes WINDOW_IMAGE.

It is recommended that products use WINDOW_IMAGES rather than WINDOW_IMAGE, and specify both a 16x16 image and a 32x32 image, to ensure that different sizes of the image are available for different uses in the OS. For example, on Windows, the 16x16 image is used in the corner of the window and in the task tray, but the 32x32 image is used in the Alt+Tab application switcher.

See Also:
Constant Field Values

WELCOME_PAGE

static final 
String WELCOME_PAGE
The product's welcome page (special XML-based format).

The value is either a fully qualified valid URL or a path relative to the product's defining bundle.

Products designed to run "headless" typically would not have such a page. Use of this property is discouraged in 3.0, the new org.eclipse.ui.intro extension point should be used instead.

See Also:
Constant Field Values

STARTUP_PROGRESS_RECT

static final 
String STARTUP_PROGRESS_RECT
The rectangle relative to the splash image's top left corner where the progress bar for reporting progress at startup should be shown. Products designed to run "headless" typically would not define this property.

The value is a comma-separated list of four integer values, specifying x, y, width, and height of the rectangle in pixel coordinates.

Since:
3.2
See Also:
IWorkbenchPreferenceConstants.SHOW_PROGRESS_ON_STARTUP, Constant Field Values

STARTUP_MESSAGE_RECT

static final 
String STARTUP_MESSAGE_RECT
The rectangle relative to the splash image's top left corner where messages for reporting progress at startup should be shown. Products designed to run "headless" typically would not define this property.

The value is a comma-separated list of four integer values, specifying x, y, width, and height of the rectangle in pixel coordinates.

Since:
3.2
See Also:
IWorkbenchPreferenceConstants.SHOW_PROGRESS_ON_STARTUP, Constant Field Values

STARTUP_FOREGROUND_COLOR

static final 
String STARTUP_FOREGROUND_COLOR
The foreground color to be used when reporting progress at startup. Products designed to run "headless" typically would not define this property.

The value is a six-digit hexadecimal number. The first two digits specify the red component of the color, the next two digits the green component, and the last two digits the blue component.

Since:
3.2
See Also:
IWorkbenchPreferenceConstants.SHOW_PROGRESS_ON_STARTUP, Constant Field Values
