Hi folks,

I am working on a eclipse product where in I have to set the text in the about dialog.
I have about.ini, and about.mappings file.

I set the value of aboutText property but this is not reflected in the products About dialog.

Can any one tell me how does eclipse read this file???

Also when i tried giving the value of aboutText in plugin.xml it worked for me, but that is not the way I want.
I want it to happen by setting text in about.ini file.

Can any one help me???

I agree. Here's the link:
