org.eclipse.jdt.core.dom
Class SwitchStatement

java.lang.Object
  extended by 

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

org.eclipse.jdt.core.dom.Statement
          extended by 
org.eclipse.jdt.core.dom.SwitchStatement

public class SwitchStatement
extends Statement

Switch statement AST node type.

 SwitchStatement:
                switch ( Expression )
                        { { SwitchCase | Statement } } }
 SwitchCase:
                case Expression  :
                default :
 
SwitchCase nodes are treated as a kind of Statement.

Since:
2.0
Restriction:
This class is not intended to be instantiated by clients.

Field Summary
static  ChildPropertyDescriptor EXPRESSION_PROPERTY
          The "expression" structural property of this node type.

Field Detail

EXPRESSION_PROPERTY

public static final 
ChildPropertyDescriptor EXPRESSION_PROPERTY
The "expression" structural property of this node type.

Since:
3.0

ChildListPropertyDescriptor STATEMENTS_PROPERTY
The "statements" structural property of this node type.

Since:
3.0
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

getExpression

public 
Expression getExpression()
Returns the expression of this switch statement.

Returns:
the expression node

setExpression

public void setExpression(
Expression expression)
Sets the expression of this switch statement.

Parameters:
expression - the new expression node
Throws:
IllegalArgumentException - if:
  • the node belongs to a different AST
  • the node already has a parent
  • a cycle in would be created

statements

public 
List statements()
Returns the live ordered list of statements for this switch statement. Within this list, SwitchCase nodes mark the start of the switch groups.

Returns:
the live list of statement nodes (element type: Statement)
