Eclipse JDT
Release 3.5

org.eclipse.jdt.core
Interface ILocalVariable

All Superinterfaces:
IAdaptable, IAnnotatable, IJavaElement, ISourceReference

public interface ILocalVariable
extends IJavaElement, ISourceReference, IAnnotatable

Represents a local variable declared in a method or an initializer. ILocalVariable are pseudo-elements created as the result of a ICodeAssist.codeSelect(...) operation. They are not part of the Java model (exists() returns whether the parent exists rather than whether the local variable exists in the parent) and they are not included in the children of an IMethod or an IInitializer.

In particular such a pseudo-element should not be used as a handle. For example its name range won't be updated if the underlying source changes.

Since:
3.0
Restriction:
This interface is not intended to be implemented by clients.

Method Detail

getElementName

String getElementName()
Returns the name of this local variable.

Specified by:
getElementName in interface IJavaElement
Returns:
the name of this local variable.

getNameRange

ISourceRange getNameRange()
Returns the source range of this local variable's name.

Returns:
the source range of this local variable's name

getTypeSignature

String getTypeSignature()
Returns the type signature of this local variable.

The type signature may be either unresolved (for source types) or resolved (for binary types), and either basic (for basic types) or rich (for parameterized types). See Signature for details.
