  extended by 

org.eclipse.jdt.core.dom.ASTNode
      extended by 
org.eclipse.jdt.core.dom.MethodRef

public class MethodRef
extends ASTNode

AST node for a method or constructor reference within a doc comment ( Javadoc). The principal uses of these are in "@see" and "@link" tag elements, for references to method and constructor members.

 MethodRef:
     [ Name ] # Identifier
         ( [ MethodRefParameter | { , MethodRefParameter } ] )
 

Since:
3.0

Restriction:
This class is not intended to be instantiated by clients.

          The "name" structural property of this node type.
static  ChildListPropertyDescriptor PARAMETERS_PROPERTY
          The "parameters" structural property of this node type.
static  ChildPropertyDescriptor QUALIFIER_PROPERTY

Method Detail

propertyDescriptors

public static 
List propertyDescriptors(int apiLevel)
Returns a list of structural property descriptors for this node type. Clients must not modify the result.

Parameters:
apiLevel - the API level; one of the AST.JLS* constants
Returns:
a list of property descriptors (element type: StructuralPropertyDescriptor)
Since:
3.0

getQualifier

public 
Name getQualifier()
Returns the qualifier of this method reference, or null if there is none.

Returns:
the qualifier name node, or null if there is none

setQualifier

public void setQualifier(
Name name)
Sets or clears the qualifier of this method reference.

Parameters:
name - the qualifier name node, or null if there is none
Throws:
IllegalArgumentException - if:
  • the node belongs to a different AST
  • the node already has a parent

getName

public 
SimpleName getName()
Returns the name of the referenced method or constructor.

Returns:
the method or constructor name node

setName

public void setName(
SimpleName name)
Sets the name of the referenced method or constructor to the given name.

Parameters:
name - the new method or constructor name node
Throws:
IllegalArgumentException - if:
  • the name is null
  • the node belongs to a different AST
  • the node already has a parent

parameters

Returns:
the live list of method parameter references (element type: MethodRefParameter)

resolveBinding

public final 
IBinding resolveBinding()
Resolves and returns the binding for the entity referred to by this method reference.

Note that bindings are generally unavailable unless requested when the AST is being built.

Returns:
the binding, or null if the binding cannot be resolved
