org.eclipse.gef.editparts
Class AbstractEditPart

java.lang.Object
  extended by
org.eclipse.gef.editparts.AbstractEditPart
All Implemented Interfaces:
EditPart, RequestConstants
Direct Known Subclasses:
AbstractGraphicalEditPart, AbstractTreeEditPart, RootTreeEditPart

public abstract class AbstractEditPart
extends java.lang.Object
implements EditPart, RequestConstants

The baseline implementation for the EditPart interface.

Since this is the default implementation of an interface, this document deals with proper sub-classing of this implementation. This class is not the API. For documentation on proper usage of the public API, see the documentation for the interface itself: EditPart.

This class assumes no visual representation. Subclasses AbstractGraphicalEditPart and AbstractTreeEditPart add support for Figures and TreeItems respectively.

AbstractEditPart provides support for children. All AbstractEditPart's can potentially be containers for other EditParts.

Constructor Detail

AbstractEditPart

public AbstractEditPart()
Method Detail

activate

public void activate()
Activates this EditPart, which in turn activates its children and EditPolicies. Subclasses should extend this method to add listeners to the model. Activation indicates that the EditPart is realized in an EditPartViewer. deactivate() is the inverse, and is eventually called on all EditParts.

Specified by:
activate in interface EditPart
See Also:
EditPart.activate(), deactivate()

activateEditPolicies

protected void activateEditPolicies()
Activates all EditPolicies installed on this part. There is no reason to override this method.

See Also:
activate()

addChild

protected void addChild(
EditPart child,
                        int index)
Adds a child EditPart to this EditPart. This method is called from refreshChildren(). The following events occur in the order listed:
  1. The child is added to the children List, and its parent is set to this
  2. addChildVisual(EditPart, int) is called to add the child's visual
  3. EditPart.addNotify() is called on the child.
  4. activate() is called if this part is active
  5. EditPartListeners are notified that the child has been added.

Subclasses should implement addChildVisual(EditPart, int).

Parameters:
child - The EditPart to add
index - The index
See Also:
addChildVisual(EditPart, int), removeChild(EditPart), reorderChild(EditPart,int)

addChildVisual

protected abstract void addChildVisual(

Performs the addition of the child's visual to this EditPart's Visual. The provided subclasses AbstractGraphicalEditPart and AbstractTreeEditPart already implement this method correctly, so it is unlikely that this method should be overridden.

Parameters:
child - The EditPart being added
index - The child's position
See Also:
addChild(EditPart, int), AbstractGraphicalEditPart.removeChildVisual(EditPart)

Parameters:
model - the Child model object
Returns:
The child EditPart

createEditPolicies

protected abstract void createEditPolicies()

Refreshes all properties visually displayed by this EditPart. The default implementation will call refreshChildren() to update its structural features. It also calls refreshVisuals() to update its own displayed properties. Subclasses should extend this method to handle additional types of structural refreshing.

Specified by:
refresh in interface EditPart

refreshChildren

protected void refreshChildren()
Updates the set of children EditParts so that it is in sync with the model children. This method is called from refresh(), and may also be called in response to notification from the model. This method requires linear time to complete. Clients should call this method as few times as possible. Consider also calling removeChild(EditPart) and addChild(EditPart, int) which run in constant time.

The update is performed by comparing the exising EditParts with the set of model children returned from getModelChildren(). EditParts whose models no longer exist are removed. New models have their EditParts created.

This method should not be overridden.

See Also:
getModelChildren()

Refreshes this EditPart's visuals. This method is called by refresh(), and may also be called in response to notifications from the model. This method does nothing by default. Subclasses may override.


register

protected void register()
Registers itself in the viewer's various registries. If your EditPart has a 1-to-1 relationship with a visual object and a 1-to-1 relationship with a model object, the default implementation should be sufficent.

protected void unregister()
Undoes any registration performed by register(). The provided base classes will correctly unregister their visuals.


unregisterAccessibility

protected final void unregisterAccessibility()
Unregisters the AccessibleEditPart adapter.


unregisterModel

protected void unregisterModel()
Unregisters the model in the EditPartViewer.getEditPartRegistry(). Subclasses should only extend this method if they need to unregister this EditPart in additional ways.


unregisterVisuals

protected void unregisterVisuals()
Unregisters the visuals in the EditPartViewer.getVisualPartMap(). Subclasses should override this method for the visual part they support. AbstractGraphicalEditPart and AbstractTreeEditPart already do this.
