#50 View Menu does not display


The View Menu in the Silverlight Project Explorer is either missing or doesn't display for some reason reason. If you hover the mouse on the little downward-facing triangle that you usually click on to bring up this menu you see the "View Menu" tooltip, but when you click on it nothing is displayed.

It's a problem not to be able to access this menu. It means you can't configure your Project Explorer view. You can't select filters or working sets, or choose whether to use projects or working sets as your top-level element.

    I have seen the screenshot. I finally understood the issue. This menu is
    not supposed to work. By now, there is nothing to put here. More advanced
    features should be implemented in later version.

    I would say that the View Menu is a basic element of a workspace. I've never seen another perspective that did not implement this.

    I reported separately that you can't open or close projects in the Silverlight perspective, and you asked me to add this to the feature request list:


    Since this is related to the View Menu being unavailable, I'll combine the two into one feature request.

    there will be a large modification to add this feature, as we can just reuse the action group that jdt provides.

    after a research by me and huang, it's impossible just to reuse the action group in the JDT or navigator, we have to do lots of development on it, I think we need a week to finish this.
