Spying, WorkingSets, Log View

So, it’s been busy in PDE land this week. Plus, there’s a lot of excitement regarding Austin City Limits… I mean 130 bands… Bob Dylan… Bjork… Muse…

Here’s some items to keep people in the loop:

  • The famous log view from PDE is considering leaving us for greener pastures
  • All new project wizards can take advantage of working sets now… like PDE.
  • Plug-in Spy makes its debut in this week’s I-build (select something and press ALT+SHIFT+F1)

    Hi Chris… I’ve managed to add some additional functionality to the PDE Spy (a great tool btw) to handle preference/property pages and get a list of Help IDs associated with a given view, editor, wizard dialog, or property/preference page (we’ve been having some help-related issues and your tool was a great place to start)…

    If I wanted to contribute my changes back to you to take a look at for inclusion, how might I go about that?

    Thanks in advance

    The Plug-in Spy looks great. Will it be possible to use it in RCP apps, too?

    Why yes Görge, it will work in an RCP application (as long as it has dependencies on org.eclipse.ui and org.eclipse.ui.forms). The only thing you will miss is the fancy hyperlinking to the proper class files. Instead, you’ll get the fully qualified class name.
