Hi Max and forge-dev subscribers,
I was discussing with Lincoln and we reached an agreement that the
current popup list that shows in the center of the IDE is not visually
that nice ( http://imgur.com/JvE8a9j
How about fixing it so it becomes nice ? :)
It would be nice if we have something like
, however I recall that Max explicitly
mentioned that the Quick Access feature should not be used in any way,
but that we might have something like that available. I've been digging
into the Eclipse API and also found no way to reuse that, unless we
(somehow) register the wizards dinamically using the
"org.eclipse.ui.newWizards" extension point, but since I am not an
Eclipse expert, I may be missing something here.
Yes, it is iterating eclipse UI constructs, things like commands, views, perspectives and
I don't think its a good thing nor know if it is even possible to register all forge
operations as commands...
one requirement of commands I beleive is that they should be defined in xml so they can be
loading the plugin before command is actually executed. Forge currently has so notion -
everything is loaded; no lazy loading.
My question is: Does it looks like a reasonable option to develop an
in the Forge 2 Eclipse plugin like Quick Access ?
As long as you dont require it to be in the menu bar taking up more space i'm fine :)
Do you guys see any other much attractive UI option in Eclipse to
display these Wizards ?
Cmd+3 was and is pretty - why not just mimic its UI and have that show up when pressing
the command shortcut for Forge ?
Just reminding that these wizards are dynamic (they are built based
the Addons installed in Forge 2), therefore they don't exist as an
Wizard class (hence not allowing adding them directly into the plugin.xml).
The latest code can be found in
