Description Ayub Khan 2005-03-10 22:41:56 UTC
Need an easy way to add custom actions to existing Node (files) in filesystem 
tab. We would like to add "Share file" action to any node in the Project Tab.

Looks like another request for Looks API (pun intended). Yarda, please look at
it and if possible, suggest a workaround for the 4.0/4.1-based implementations.
Comment 2 Jaroslav Tulach 2005-03-11 17:32:36 UTC
1. you can add action to every node in project tab into the Tools submenu, it
will be a bit hidden, but will be there. 

2. you can add your action to popup of every folder or java file, read more at

I hope this will be satisfactory.
