A proposal sorter contribution.


  • id - the unique identifier of the sorter
  • name - the label of the sorter as shown in the preferences. It should be a continuation of the phrase "Sort proposals...", for example "by relevance".
  • class - the name of the class that implements the contributed sorter. The class must be a public subclass of org.eclipse.jdt.ui.text.java.AbstractProposalSorter and must have a public 0-argument constructor.

Examples:


<extension
 point=
"org.eclipse.jdt.ui.javaCompletionProposalSorters"
>
 <proposalSorter
  id=
"org.eclipse.jdt.ui.RelevanceSorter"

  name=
"by relevance"

  class=
"org.eclipse.jdt.internal.ui.text.java.RelevanceSorter"
/>
</extension>

Supplied Implementation:
org.eclipse.jdt.internal.ui.text.java.RelevanceSorter and org.eclipse.jdt.internal.ui.text.java.AlphabeticSorter implement the two default sort behaviors.
