Hi there,
I figured out how to get an RCP a tray icon. Now I need to figure out how to define a global hotkey. What I want to achieve:
- Minimize an Eclipse RCP to the system tray
- Work with other stuff
- Hit the hotkey (e.g. Ctrl+G ) and bring up one dialog window of the application (or if that's not possible), the whole app and open that dialog. Hints very much appreciated.
:-)stw
