Eclipse GEF
3.3

org.eclipse.gef.rulers
Class RulerProvider

java.lang.Object
  extended by
org.eclipse.gef.rulers.RulerProvider

public abstract class RulerProvider
extends java.lang.Object

This class provides an interface to interact with the ruler/guide feature provided in GEF. A RulerProvider represents a ruler (and the guides contained within), and provides the necessary information about them.

Clients wishing to utilize this GEF feature should do the following:

  • Extend this class and override the necessary methods. Also provide a notification mechanism to notify registered RulerChangeListeners of changes in ruler properties.
  • Set instances of that class as properties on the diagram's graphical viewer (PROPERTY_HORIZONTAL_RULER and/or PROPERTY_VERTICAL_RULER)
  • Set PROPERTY_RULER_VISIBILITY to be true on the graphical viewer.

Since:
3.0
