Why I cannot persist plugin settings (project scope)?

Answered

I've created custom PropertiesComponent based on PropertiesComponentImpl.

The differences:

@State(
name = "TaskTimer",
storages = {@Storage(StoragePathMacros.WORKSPACE_FILE)}
)

above class declaraton and:

public void setTogglToken(String token) {
this.setValue("ttoken", token);
}

public String getTogglToken() {
return this.getValue("ttoken");
}

public void setTogglProject(String name) {
this.setValue("tproject", name);
}

public String getTogglProject() {
return this.getValue("tproject");
}

@NotNull
public String getComponentName() {
return "TaskTimer";
}

inside class. That's all differences from example implementation.

 

My Configurable implementation:

 

private final TaskTimerPropertiesComponent properties = new TaskTimerPropertiesComponent();

@Override
public void apply() throws ConfigurationException {
properties.setTogglToken(token.getText());
properties.setTogglProject(projectsList.getSelectedItem().toString());
}

but in createComponent() method getters returns always nulls, so it seems that those values weren't persisted after closing settings window.

 

What am I doing wrong here?

`TaskTimerPropertiesComponent` must be registered as a service.

```
<projectService serviceImplementation="yourPackage.TaskTimerPropertiesComponent"/>
```

and instead `new`, add `getInstance` method to your class

```
public static PropertiesComponent getInstance(Project project) {
return ServiceManager.getService(project, TaskTimerPropertiesComponent.class);
}
```

Thanks, one more question how to get Project object in Configurable class for loading PropertiesComponent? (createComponent method exactly)
