Interface IUndoContext

All Known Implementing Classes:
ObjectUndoContext, UndoContext

public interface IUndoContext

An undo context is used to "tag" operations as being applicable to a certain context. The undo context is used to filter the history of operations available for undo or redo so that only operations appropriate for a given undo context are shown when the application is presenting that context.

The scope of an undo context is defined by the application that is making undo and redo of operations available. Undo contexts may be related to application models, or may be associated with UI objects that are providing undo and redo support.

An undo context may be defined as "matching" another context. This allows applications to provide specialized implementations of an undo context that will appear in the operation history for their matching context.
