Avoid pitfalls with property testers in a RCP app

Sorting Thoughts Context Menu
For a new Sorting Thoughts feature that give the user access to context based action items in a context menu, I learned again that Eclipse and the Command Core Expressions are sometimes not very clear. When you leave the trivial way, you can waste many many time to find the right solution.

At first glance it seems to be very easy, I thought I must only register and implement a property tester and all is fine. But I was wrong. Without the help of Robert Wloch article “Property Testers with Command Core Expressions” I never thought that I have to implement a start up trigger (IStartup) and a ISelectionChangedListener too. So, if you want implement context based menu entries with property testers read the article first.

My only problem was to set a new min zoom level because the limit constant in ISettings is not overwriteable. But as workaround it is possible to use the IGanttEventListener. zoomedIn(…) to stop zooming in a not useful zoom level.
