Hi Ranchers,

I have view which displays files/ folders present in workspace. I have to add a "Rename" action on right click after selecting the resource.
Is there some jface or EMF commands to do it.
I found org.eclipse.ui.actions.RenameResourceAction , but not sure how to use it.

TIA

Hi

If you are using javax.swing.JTree for displaying File Tree then you can use its jTree.setEditable(true) .. which adds listner to rename file and folder. After setting this true you dont have to do much, by double clicking on file/folder name, it allows rename it just like windows explorer

Ref : http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.5.0/docs/api/javax/swing/JTree.html#setEditable(boolean)

Code example : http://www.java2s.com/Code/Java/Swing-JFC/FileSystemTree.htm

Except this isn't about Swing but JFace / EMF.

Hey Nandkishore,

I wasn't properly using the run method inside org.eclipse.ui.actions.RenameResourceAction. Thus it was failing.
Got the way out.

 
I've read about this kind of thing at the checkout counter. That's where I met this tiny ad:
