Menus don't show any builders
For languages that have more than one menu, only the last menu works. For example, in SDF3 the Syntax and Analysis menus do not show any menu entires when clicking the arrow, and does not do anything when clicking the text. Only the Generation (last) menu works.Submitted by Gabriël Konat on 17 March 2014 at 09:57
It doesn’t seem to always happen.. In my primary Eclipse instance, I don’t have access to the Syntax and Analysis menus in SDF3, but in my secondary launched Eclipse instance, I do have access to them. Maybe it only happens for non-dynamically loaded languages?
It makes sense that it only happens for non-dynamically loaded languages because the actions in the Syntax and Analysis menus are all
(meta). You should remove the
(meta)annotation if you want the actions to be visible for everyone.
I agree that it is a bug that these empty menus still show up, but I’m planning to fix this with Spoofax/799.
Ah, you’re right, they are indeed all meta. I thought those builders used to show up, but maybe because I have some meta-languages open and was launching a separate Eclipse instance they don’t show up. We need to have a Spoofax option to show all meta builders for developers (making separate issue for that)
