public interface IFileModificationValidator
The file modification validator is a Team-related hook for pre-checking operations
that modify the contents of files.
This interface is used only in conjunction with the
extension point. It is intended to be implemented only
by the Eclipse Platform Team plug-in.
- Validates that the given files can be modified. The files must all exist
in the workspace. The optional context object may be supplied if
UI-based validation is required. If the context is
validator must attempt to perform the validation in a headless manner.
The returned status is
IStatus.OK if this validator
believes the given file can be modified. Other return statuses indicate
the reason why the individual files cannot be modified.
files - the files that are to be modified; these files must all exist in the workspace
context - the
org.eclipse.swt.widgets.Shell that is to be used to
parent any dialogs with the user, or
null if there is no UI context (declared
Object to avoid any direct references on the SWT component)
- a status object that is OK if things are fine, otherwise a status describing
reasons why modifying the given files is not reasonable
- Validates that the given file can be saved. This method is called from
before any attempt to write data to disk. The returned status is
IStatus.OK if this validator believes the given file can be
successfully saved. In all other cases the return value is a non-OK status.
Note that a return value of
IStatus.OK does not guarantee
that the save will succeed.
file - the file that is to be modified; this file must exist in the workspace
- a status indicating whether or not it is reasonable to try writing to the given file;
IStatus.OK indicates a save should be attempted.
