Action Definitions

This extension point is deprecated

Identifier:
org.eclipse.ui.actionDefinitions

Since:
2.0

Description:

WARNING: This extension point is DEPRECATED.
Do not use this extension point, it will be removed in future versions of this product. Instead, use the extension point org.eclipse.ui.commands

This extension point is used to register action definitions. Accelerators (see the Accelerator Sets extension point) use action definitions to reference actions. An action associates itself with a given accelerator by registering with that accelerator's associated action definition. An action registers itself with an action definition by calling the setActionDefinitionId(String id) method and supplying the action definition's id as an argument.

Configuration Markup:

<!ELEMENT extension ( actionDefinition*)>

<!ATTLIST extension

point CDATA #REQUIRED

>

  • point - a fully qualified identifier of the target extension point
  • id - an optional identifier of the extension instance
  • name - an optional name of the extension instance

The actionDefinition element is deprecated

<!ELEMENT actionDefinition EMPTY>

<!ATTLIST actionDefinition

  • id - a unique name that can be used to identify this action.
  • name - the name of the action as displayed to the user.
  • description - a short description of the action to display to the user.

Examples:
Following is an example of an action definition extension:


   <extension point=
"org.eclipse.ui.actionDefinitions"
> 
      <actionDefinition 
        id=
"org.eclipse.ui.file.save"
> 
      </actionDefinition> 
      <actionDefinition 
        id=
"org.eclipse.ui.file.saveAll"
> 
      </actionDefinition> 
      <actionDefinition 
        id=
"org.eclipse.ui.file.close"
> 
      </actionDefinition> 
      <actionDefinition 
        id=
"org.eclipse.ui.file.closeAll"
> 
      </actionDefinition> 
      <actionDefinition 
        id=
"org.eclipse.ui.file.print"
> 
      </actionDefinition> 
   </extension>

The workbench provides many action definitions.
