"New" Action position

Hi, almost there with my first plugin :)

One esoteric issue is that I'm trying to add one of my actions to the ProjectViewPopupMenu in the NewGroup.

I have my Action defined in plugin.xml as:

]]>

But my action only shows up at the bottom of the ProjectViewPopupMenu and not in the new group.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

MZ

The second <add-to-group> also specifies anchor="last", so relative-to-action
is ignored. You need to specify anchor="after".

(By the way, do you know that Karl Tauber is currently working on an official
JFormDesigner plugin for IDEA?)

Hi,
Looks like to avoid duplicated plugins (we all remember Struts plugins count) it will be good to add "Currently in development plugins" even without author and developer specification to make more not intersected plugins. Kind of "Plugins roadmap". And all starters plugin writers will browse it or even be able to pick ideas somewhere in plugins site...


Thanks,
Dmitry

Interesting :). Do you know this "unofficially"?
AFAIK officially it's still working on the Eclipse plug-in for JFromDesigner - the current EAP:

Thanks in advance,

Ahmed.

I don't know how "unofficial" this information is - I think the IDEA plugin
work was mentioned in the e-mail announcing the Eclipse plugin EAP.

It is on the http://jformdesigner.com/features/roadmap.html

That roadmap is very old :). Even JBuilder is listed there :D.

Yes I knew that, but there doesn't seem to be any hurry or timeline.

I also did this as an academic exercise in a hurry.

It's essentially done and if I say so myself doesn't work too bad (with limited features).
