Everyone remember the beloved PDE plug-in spy? Well, on a recent plane trip… I did some hacking to enable menu introspection… check out this video:
So when you launch the spy in menu mode (alt+shift+f2) and click on something like the ‘Generate Javadoc…’ menu entry, you get this pop-up:
The functionality is currently in very rough shape… I released some initial code for the I20090317 “EclipseCon build.” If you have any suggestions on how to improve this introspection workflow or presentation, please comment and let me know! On a side note, Paul Webster and I plan to have a hackathon session at EclipseCon to solidify the menu introspection code for the Eclipse 3.5 M7 release. Feel free to join to us!
Finally, I hope to see everyone at EclipseCon!
