There may be something in the documentation that installs into Eclipse when you install LPEX (and the other parts of RDp). In other words hunt through Eclipse Help/Help Contents. I haven't studied it, but I seem to recall stumbling across some docs on extending LPEX there. I don't have an RDp instance of Eclipse up at the moment so can't check for you.

Thanks Dan

It does appear to work totally different.

Do you know if there are any resources for the commands relating to the
LPEX editor. I have been searching for a while now and have not seen
anything that explains these things.
There are just some presentations out on the web that show bits and pieces
and then some places where others are asking questions

Thanks again

Ron

I can't help very much, but remember the LPEX editor was built for other
containers before it was shoe-horned into Eclipse. You should look for
documentation on LPEX rather than relying on Eclipse notes. The principal
developer of LPEX, Inge Weiss, has retired from IBM, I believe.

I am sending this to two lists. WDSCI-L and JAVA400-L.

I am trying to add a menu item to the LPEX Popup menu.

I can add a new item to the popup menu in other editors using the
SimplePopupMenu example on the web.
However I cannot get the new menu item to show up on a member
opened
in the LPEX editor.

Below is the plugin.xml file

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <?eclipse version="3.4"?>
<plugin>

<extension
point="org.eclipse.ui.popupMenus">
<objectContribution
objectClass="org.eclipse.ui.IEditorInput"
id="simplePopupMenu.contribution1">
<menu
label="ShowIFile"
path="additions"
id="simplePopupMenu.menu1">
<separator
name="group1">
</separator>
</menu>
<action
label="SimpleMessageAction"
class="simplepopupmenu.popup.actions.SimpleMessageAction"
menubarPath="simplePopupMenu.menu1/group1"
enablesFor="1"
id="simplePopupMenu.newAction">
</action>
</objectContribution>
</extension>
<extension
point="com.ibm.lpex.preload">
<preload
class="simplePopupMenu.preload3">
</preload>
</extension>

</plugin>


If anyone has any ideas what I need to do to make this show up in the
Lpex Editor I would appreciate it.

Thanks

Ron
