How do I add an action to a file of a given mime-type?

The simplest way is to run File > New…​ > Module Development > Action which creates an action for you and registers it in your layer.xml.

  1. On the first tab, choose Conditionally Enabled action and select DataObject as the cookie class.

  2. On the second tab, check File Type Context Menu Item and choose the MIME type and position.

You can use text/html, text/x-java, text/x-ant+xml, text/x-jsp, image/png, etc.
