Remove unwanted actions in RCP application

Veröffentlicht von

In my current RCP application some unwanted Eclipse actions showed up in the toolbar and menubar:


How to get rid of these?

The solution is “simple”. Add the following method and array to the “ApplicationActionBarAdvisor”  class:

private static final String[] actionSetId = new String[] { "org.eclipse.ui.WorkingSetActionSet", //$NON-NLS-1$
    "org.eclipse.ui.edit.text.actionSet.navigation", //$NON-NLS-1$
    "org.eclipse.ui.edit.text.actionSet.convertLineDelimitersTo", //$NON-NLS-1$
    "org.eclipse.ui.actionSet.openFiles", //$NON-NLS-1$
    "org.eclipse.ui.edit.text.actionSet.annotationNavigation", //$NON-NLS-1$
    "org.eclipse.ui.NavigateActionSet", //$NON-NLS-1$
    ""}; //$NON-NLS-1$

    private void removeUnWantedActions() {
       ActionSetRegistry asr = WorkbenchPlugin.getDefault().getActionSetRegistry();
       IActionSetDescriptor[] actionSets = asr.getActionSets();

       IExtension ext = null;
       for (IActionSetDescriptor actionSet : actionSets) {
          for (String element : actionSetId) {

             if (element.equals(actionSet.getId())) {
                ext = actionSet.getConfigurationElement().getDeclaringExtension();
                asr.removeExtension(ext, new Object[] { actionSet });

Call “removeUnWantedActions” from the constructor.

The unwanted actions should be gone now:
