Preferences

The Preferences dialog (Window > Preferences) lets you customize the behavior of your environment, such as when to build your projects, which target processors to build for, and how to open new perspectives.

Besides global preferences, you can also set preferences on a per-project basis using the Properties item in right-click menus.

On Ubuntu 9.10, icons inside menus aren't displayed if you use GTK 2.18; see bug 293720 at http://www.eclipse.org.

Workaround: Turn on the Show icons in menus option (for example, under System > Preferences > Appearance > Interface on Ubuntu 9.10).

Profiles page

This page contains the general settings for the Momentics IDE for BlackBerry based on user profiles. You can access the Profiles page from Window > Preferences > QNX > Profiles. Profiles provide a way to hide functionality that's not needed for a specific developer. Using this page, you can activate or deactivate certain capabilities in the Momentics IDE based on your user profile:
  • BlackBerry Application Developer
  • BlackBerry System Developer
  • C/C++ Developer (CDT)
  • QNX Developer

To use the BlackBerry Application Developer and BlackBerry System Developer profiles you must have a BlackBerry Native SDK license. To use the QNX Developer profile you must have a QNX Software Development Platform license.

When you set capabilities, the following rules apply:
  • More than one profile can be active at the same time.
  • Profiles can be set interactively using the Profiles preferences, or by using the configuration file.
  • The Momentics IDE can dynamically reconfigure itself when you add a new profile, or when an existing one is disabled.

The following preferences can be changed on the Profiles preference page.
