Eclipse4/RCP/Modeled UI/Modifying the Model
The Eclipse 4 application model is backed by interfaces exposing simple POJO methods. Please see below for some sample code.
// change the label of a menu item menuItem.setLabel("New Name"); // mark a part as being dirty part.setDirty(true); // get a list of child windows List<MWindow> childWindows = mainWindow.getWindows();
Reparenting an Element
When a drag-and-drop operation has been performed, one part may be moved from one stack to another stack. This can be executed with the code below.
List<MStackElement> children = otherStack.getChildren(); children.add(draggedPart);
Changing the Visibility
If you would like to hide an element from the interface, you can change an MUIElement's visible attribute.
