Eclipse JDT
Release 3.5

org.eclipse.jdt.core.dom
Class VariableDeclarationFragment

java.lang.Object
  extended by 

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

org.eclipse.jdt.core.dom.VariableDeclaration
          extended by 
org.eclipse.jdt.core.dom.VariableDeclarationFragment

public class VariableDeclarationFragment
extends VariableDeclaration

Variable declaration fragment AST node type, used in field declarations, local variable declarations, and ForStatement initializers. It contrast to SingleVariableDeclaration, fragments are missing the modifiers and the type; these are located in the fragment's parent node.

 VariableDeclarationFragment:
    Identifier { [
] } [ = Expression ]
 

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

Field Summary
static  SimplePropertyDescriptor EXTRA_DIMENSIONS_PROPERTY
          The "extraDimensions" structural property of this node type.
static  ChildPropertyDescriptor INITIALIZER_PROPERTY
          The "initializer" structural property of this node type.
static  ChildPropertyDescriptor NAME_PROPERTY
          The "name" structural property of this node type.

Field Detail

NAME_PROPERTY

public static final 
ChildPropertyDescriptor NAME_PROPERTY
The "name" structural property of this node type.

Since:
3.0

public static final 
SimplePropertyDescriptor EXTRA_DIMENSIONS_PROPERTY
The "extraDimensions" structural property of this node type.

Since:
3.0

INITIALIZER_PROPERTY

public static final 
ChildPropertyDescriptor INITIALIZER_PROPERTY
The "initializer" 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

getName

public 
SimpleName getName()
Description copied from class: VariableDeclaration
Returns the name of the variable declared in this variable declaration.

Specified by:
getName in class VariableDeclaration
Returns:
the variable name node

setName

public void setName(
SimpleName variableName)
Description copied from class: VariableDeclaration
Sets the name of the variable declared in this variable declaration to the given name.

Specified by:
setName in class VariableDeclaration
Parameters:
variableName - the new variable name

getExtraDimensions

public int getExtraDimensions()
Returns the number of extra array dimensions this variable has over and above the type specified in the enclosing declaration.

For example, in the AST for int[] i, j[], k[][] the variable declaration fragments for the variables i, j, and k, have 0, 1, and 2 extra array dimensions, respectively.

Specified by:
getExtraDimensions in class VariableDeclaration
Returns:
the number of extra array dimensions this variable has over and above the type specified in the enclosing declaration
Since:

For example, in the AST for int[] i, j[], k[][] the variable declaration fragments for the variables i, j, and k, have 0, 1, and 2 extra array dimensions, respectively.

Specified by:
setExtraDimensions in class VariableDeclaration
Parameters:
dimensions - the given dimensions
Since:
2.0

getInitializer

public 
Expression getInitializer()
Description copied from class: VariableDeclaration
Returns the initializer of this variable declaration, or null if there is none.

Specified by:
getInitializer in class VariableDeclaration
Returns:
the initializer expression node, or null if there is none

setInitializer

public void setInitializer(
