Eclipse JDT
Release 3.5

org.eclipse.jdt.core
Class BufferChangedEvent

java.lang.Object
  extended by 

java.util.EventObject
      extended by 
org.eclipse.jdt.core.BufferChangedEvent
All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable

public class BufferChangedEvent
extends EventObject

A buffer changed event describes how a buffer has changed. These events are used in IBufferChangedListener notifications.

For text insertions, getOffset is the offset of the first inserted character, getText is the inserted text, and getLength is 0.

For text removals, getOffset is the offset of the first removed character, getText is null, and getLength is the length of the text that was removed.

For replacements (including IBuffer.setContents), getOffset is the offset of the first replaced character, getText is the replacement text, and getLength is the length of the original text that was replaced.

When a buffer is closed, getOffset is 0, getLength is 0, and getText is null.

Instances of this class are automatically created by the Java model.

Method Detail

getBuffer

public 
IBuffer getBuffer()
Returns the buffer which has changed.

Returns:
the buffer affected by the change
