Table of WTP IDs

Revision as of 22:08, 15 December 2007 by D a (Talk | contribs) (Introduction)


There are a vast number of ids that are used within the WTP. Every command, content-type, action, menu, etc has an id that is associated with it. This page will try to keep up to date with the various ids, where they can be found, and what they correspond too.

It is important to document the usage of the ids, especially when they relate to menus, toolbars, commands, and popus as the org.eclipse.ui.menus extension point allows for other plugins to contribute to menus based off the ids that are published. Commands are also referenced by id, and are implemented based on handlers.


The org.eclipse.ui.menus extension point allows for the definition of menus that other plugins can contribute too. See Menu_Contributions Menu Contributions and Basic Workbench Extensions using Commands for more information specifically for working with org.eclipse.ui.menus, org.eclipse.ui.commands, and org.eclipse.ui.handlers.


Commands are implemented and tied to menus using handlers. They can also be tied to actionSets and have action Delgates. If implemented using handlers, a command may have zero to many handlers, but only zero to one may be active at any given point in time. Handlers can be specified using either the org.eclipse.ui.handlers extension point or programtically.
