Marker Annotation Specification

Identifier:
org.eclipse.ui.editors.markerAnnotationSpecification

Since:
3.0 (originally named org.eclipse.ui.workbench.texteditor.markerAnnotationSpecification)

Description:
This extension point is used to define presentation properties of markers. Extensions provided for this extension point can be accessed using org.eclipse.ui.texteditor.MarkerAnnotationPreferences. Use org.eclipse.ui.texteditor.AnnotationPreferenceLookup to get the annotation preference for a given annotation.

Note that an extension will only be returned from MarkerAnnotationPreferences.getAnnotationPreferences (and thus included in the preference pages) if it contains the following four attributes in addition to the required annotationType:

  • colorPreferenceKey
  • colorPreferenceValue
  • overviewRulerPreferenceKey
  • textPreferenceKey

Annotation preference types that extend another annotation preference are allowed to overwrite attributes already defined in a parent preference specification, but these will not be accessible from the preference page.
