Preferences

Identifier:
org.eclipse.core.runtime.preferences

Since:

Description:
The preferences extension point allows bundles to add new preference scopes to the Eclipse preference mechanism as well as specify the class to run to initialize default preference values at runtime.

Configuration Markup:

<!ELEMENT extension ( scope* , initializer* , modifier*)>

<!ATTLIST extension

point CDATA #REQUIRED

id    CDATA #IMPLIED

name  CDATA #IMPLIED

>


<!ELEMENT scope EMPTY>

<!ATTLIST scope

name  CDATA #REQUIRED

class CDATA #REQUIRED

>

Element describing a client's definiton of a new preference scope.


  • name - The name of the scope.
  • class - The name of the class.

<!ELEMENT initializer EMPTY>

<!ATTLIST initializer

class CDATA #REQUIRED

>

Element which defines the class to use for runtime preference initialization.


  • class - The name of the class.

<!ELEMENT modifier EMPTY>

<!ATTLIST modifier

class CDATA #REQUIRED

Examples:
Following is an example of a preference scope declaration. This example declares that this plug-in will provide a preference implementation for the scope "foo". It also declares that when the default values are loaded for this plug-in, the class "MyPreferenceInitializer" contains code to be run to initialize preference default values at runtime.


      <extension point=
"org.eclipse.equinox.preferences.preferences"
>
         <scope name=
"foo"
 class=
"com.example.FooPrefs"
/>
         <initializer class=
"com.example.MyPreferenceInitializer"
/>
         <modifier class=
"com.example.MyModifyListener"
/>
      </extension>
   

Supplied Implementation:
The org.eclipse.equinox.preferences bundle provides preference implementations for the "configuration", "instance", and "default" scopes. The org.eclipse.core.resources bundle provides an implementation for "project" preferences.
