Action is not triggered from main menu

Hi, i has been created first plugin for IntelliJ with simple action like on this tutorial.

But when I run plugin this action is not triggered from main menu.

I triggered my action only by hot keys and also from Search Everywhere result list.


What is my problem?

 

plugin.xml

<actions>
<action id="DummyAction" class="DummyAction" text="Dummy Action" description="Dummy Action">
<add-to-group group-id="WindowMenu" anchor="last"/>
<keyboard-shortcut keymap="$default" first-keystroke="ctrl meta alt D"/>
</action>
</actions>

DummyAction.java

import com.intellij.openapi.actionSystem.AnAction;
import com.intellij.openapi.actionSystem.AnActionEvent;
import com.intellij.openapi.ui.Messages;

public class DummyAction extends AnAction {

@Override
public void actionPerformed(AnActionEvent e) {
Messages.showMessageDialog("Hello!\n I am glad to see you.", "Information", Messages.getInformationIcon());
}
}

Do you mean that you can see 'Dummy Action' menu item in 'Window' menu, but when you click on it nothing happens?

If so please look in idea.log (Help | Show Log) for exceptions.

BTW you shouldn't place classes into the root package in Java, please move the class into some package.

Why I should not place classes into root package? I'm newbie in Java world.

I have MacBook Pro with High Sierra (macOS 10.13.3). When I build IntelliJ community edition from sources and run it, main menu is visible but does not work.

I use key -Dapple.laf.useScreenMenuBar=false to run IntelliJ community edition and my plugin too. And now I have working main menu.

0

I have same problem. When I click the custom action menu, there are no any response. -Dapple.laf.useScreenMenuBar=false works.

0

I have the same problem when running a debug IDE to test my plugin. I am going through the tutorial and when I click on Tools -> Simple Action, nothing happens. In fact, many of the standard menu items don't do anything either (ex: Tools -> Save Project As Template...)

0

I am having the same problem and tiered of it
