Cannot add programmatically action to NavBarToolBar

It works from plugin XML, like:

<group id="org.jetbrains.tutorials.actions.ExampleCustomDefaultActionGroup"
text="Example Custom DefaultActionGroup" description="Custom DefaultActionGroup Demo">
<add-to-group group-id="NavBarToolBar" anchor="first"/>
<action class="com.github.clouddevdesktopplugin.actions.DeployAnAction"
<action class="com.github.clouddevdesktopplugin.actions.RestartAnAction"
<action class="com.github.clouddevdesktopplugin.actions.BuildAnAction"

But doesn't work from Project Component like:

DefaultActionGroup windowM = (DefaultActionGroup) actionManager.getAction("NavBarToolBar");

DefaultActionGroup defaultActionGroup = new DefaultActionGroup("Opa", Arrays.asList(deployAnAction, restartAnAction, buildAnAction));

just no actions in toolbar, at the same time if I use NavBarToolBarOthers I can see actions in slightly different place. 

How to do that?



Thx for link, I tried that, and it even works for other toolbars, however I'm trying to add a actions, to plane on screen:

I can do that when I define actions in XML, but not from code. Why?


Could you please post link to full plugin sources? Anyway it is preferrable to use XML registration for Actions if possible to avoid unnecessary class-loading.


  I use this to add buttons to the toolbars with LivePlugin, since I can't use a plugin.xml then

// Add actions to this action group using the regular IntelliJ mechanisms and they will show up in the toolbar/navbar toolbar
// By default, all actions are shown next to each other
// Set popup to true if you want
DefaultActionGroup actionGroupInMainToolbarAndNavBar(String uniqueId, String description = "", boolean popup = false) {
DefaultActionGroup actionGroup = registerAction(uniqueId, new DefaultActionGroup(description, popup))
// Originally, I tried adding the actions directly to the Main toolbar/navbar toolbar action groups, but this didn't really work, even with this

// Instead, we use the same mechanism in which the user can add buttons/menus to the toolbars
// It's stored in customization.xml and accessible via CustomActionsSchema.getInstance

def instance = CustomActionsSchema.getInstance()
// Without this, customization.xml gets spammed with duplicate entries. I used to have duplicates within the toolbar as well, but can't reproduce that anymore. Maybe older IntelliJ behaved differently?

// position = 100 to add the action at the end
instance.addAction(new ActionUrl(["root", "Main Toolbar"], uniqueId, ActionUrl.ADDED, 100))
// When the toolbar is disabled, some actions show to the right of the navigation bar, let's show those first (position = 0)
instance.addAction(new ActionUrl(["root", "Navigation Bar Toolbar"], uniqueId, ActionUrl.ADDED, 0))

// This will force the toolbars to update and show the new buttons

return actionGroup

DefaultActionGroup myActionGroup = actionGroupInMainToolbarAndNavBar("my-action-group", "Action Name (search in Ctrl-Shift-A)", false)
myActionGroup.getTemplatePresentation().setDescription("Description in status bar")
