Method Detail

preApply

public 
IEclipsePreferences preApply(
IEclipsePreferences node)
Clients are given the opportunity to modify the given tree before it is applied to the global preference tree. Clients should return the tree which should be applied globally. The tree passed in will not be null and clients must not return a null tree.

This method is called by the preference service from within calls to IPreferencesService.applyPreferences(IExportedPreferences) or IPreferencesService.applyPreferences(IEclipsePreferences, IPreferenceFilter[]).

A typical action for clients to perform would be to intercept the incoming preference tree, migrate old preference values to new ones, and then return the new tree.

Parameters:
node - the tree to modify
Returns:
the tree to apply to the global preferences
