Better way to find Eclipse command Ids, and more...
« on: August 18, 2008, 09:01:29 pm »
Core 3.4.0 introduced the Slick-C function _eclipse_execute_command which allows you to execute Eclipse commands from the SlickEdit environment.  The documentation for this function shows you how you can search the Plug-in Registry to find Eclipse command names and ids, but there is a much better way documented in the following blog post:  http://evans-stuff.blogspot.com/2007/10/it-seems-that-im-not-only-one-still.html

Unfortunately I discovered this technique after we finished the documentation and shipped the plug-in, but hopefully me pointing it out here may help some users. 

Also, don't forget the "Activate Editor" command in Eclipse (F12 by default).  If you are using _eclipse_execute_command to jump into different Eclipse Views and search around mouse-less, hitting F12 will jump you back into the last active editor.
