Package org.eclipse.gmf.runtime.common.ui.services.editor Description

Provides an editor service for manipulating Eclipse Editors, including an operation to open an editor from an org.eclipse.ui.IEditorInput. The Editor Service also includes methods to get registered editors and to register and unregister editors.

Using this Package

The Editor Service implements org.eclipse.gmf.runtime.common.ui.services.editor.IEditorProvider. The interface contains only one method, openEditor(IEditorInput), which takes the editor input for the editor to be opened.

Providers may subclass AbstractEditorProvider, which implements the required IEditorProvider. The only operation executed by the service is OpenEditorOperation, whose constructor takes the same parameters as the interface's method.

The Editor Service

In addition to the openEditor method, the EditorService contains methods to keep track of editors and other methods that should be called when the editor is initialized and disposed. The static instance of the EditorService class is obtained using the getInstance() method.

The registerEditor(IEditorPart) method should be called when the editor is initialized, and the unregisterEditor(IEditorPart) method should be called when the editor is disposed. Calling these methods will ensure the map of editors is updated. This is important to obtain the expected results when either getRegisteredEditors(String) or getRegisteredEditorParts() is called. These methods return the registered editors matching the editor's ID from the editor site and all the editors, respectively.
