Eclipse Platform
Release 3.5

Package org.eclipse.core.commands.operations

Classes for the creation of undoable operations which can be added to an operations history and later be undone and redone.


Interface Summary
IAdvancedUndoableOperation IAdvancedUndoableOperation defines an interface for undoable operations that modify one or more elements in a model and attempt to keep model listeners up to date with changes that occur in the undo and redo history involving particular model elements.
IAdvancedUndoableOperation2 IAdvancedUndoableOperation2 defines a method for computing the validity of executing an operation before attempting to execute it.
ICompositeOperation ICompositeOperation defines an undoable operation that is composed of child operations.
IContextReplacingOperation IContextReplacingOperation defines an interface for undoable operations that can replace one undo context with another undo context.
IOperationApprover IOperationApprover defines an interface for approving the undo or redo of a particular operation within an operation history.
IOperationApprover2 Extends IOperationApprover to approve the execution of a particular operation within an operation history.
IOperationHistory IOperationHistory tracks a history of operations that can be undone or redone.
IOperationHistoryListener This interface is used to listen to notifications from an IOperationHistory.
IUndoableOperation IUndoableOperation defines an operation that can be executed, undone, and redone.
IUndoContext An undo context is used to "tag" operations as being applicable to a certain context.

Class Summary
AbstractOperation Abstract implementation for an undoable operation.
DefaultOperationHistory A base implementation of IOperationHistory that implements a linear undo and redo model .
LinearUndoEnforcer An operation approver that enforces a strict linear undo.
LinearUndoViolationDetector An abstract class for detecting violations in a strict linear undo/redo model.
ObjectUndoContext An undo context that can be used to represent any given object.
OperationHistoryEvent OperationHistoryEvent is used to communicate changes that occur in a DefaultOperationHistory, including the addition or removal of operations, and the execution, undo, and redo of operations.
OperationHistoryFactory This class is used to maintain the instance of the operation history that should be used by classes that access the undo or redo history and add undoable operations to the history.
OperationStatus OperationStatus describes the status of a request to execute, undo, or redo an operation.
TriggeredOperations Triggered operations are a specialized implementation of a composite operation that keeps track of operations triggered by the execution of some primary operation.
UndoContext A simple, lightweight undo context that can be used to tag any operation.

Package org.eclipse.core.commands.operations Description

Classes for the creation of undoable operations which can be added to an operations history and later be undone and redone.

Package Specification

An undoable operation is a unit of work that can be executed, undone, and redone. Operations can be added to an operation history so that they can later be undone and redone according to the undo model for an application. Operations may be assigned one or more undo contexts which can be used to filter the available operations for undo or redo in the operation history. Clients may choose to provide undo and redo function for all operations in a history, or only for a particular undo context in that history. Operation histories may be configured with an operation approver so that applications can enforce any desired undo model, such as strict linear (LIFO) undo. This package provides the definition and a basic implementation for operations, undo contexts, histories, and operation approvers.
