Method Detail


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


IActionBars getActionBars()
Returns the action bars for this page site. Pages have exclusive use of their site's action bars.
