 void initializeFrom ( ILaunchConfiguration configuration)
          Initializes this tab's controls with values from the given launch configuration.
static boolean isLaunchInBackground ( ILaunchConfiguration configuration)
          Returns whether the given configuration should be launched in the background.
 boolean isValid ( ILaunchConfiguration config)
          Returns whether this tab is in a valid state in the context of the specified launch configuration.
 void performApply ( ILaunchConfigurationWorkingCopy configuration)
          Copies values from this tab into the given launch configuration.

Constructor Detail

CommonTab

public CommonTab()
Method Detail

createControl

public void createControl(
Composite parent)
Description copied from interface: ILaunchConfigurationTab
Creates the top level control for this launch configuration tab under the given parent composite. This method is called once on tab creation, after setLaunchConfigurationDialog is called.

Implementors are responsible for ensuring that the created control can be accessed via getControl

Parameters:
parent - the parent composite

createLaunchInBackgroundComponent

protected void createLaunchInBackgroundComponent(
Composite parent)
Creates the controls needed to edit the launch in background attribute of an external tool

Parameters:
parent - the composite to create the controls in

initializeFrom

public void initializeFrom(
ILaunchConfiguration configuration)
Description copied from interface: ILaunchConfigurationTab
Initializes this tab's controls with values from the given launch configuration. This method is called when a configuration is selected to view or edit, after this tab's control has been created.

Parameters:
configuration - launch configuration

updateLaunchInBackground

protected void updateLaunchInBackground(
ILaunchConfiguration configuration)
Updates the launch on background check button

Parameters:
configuration - the local launch configuration

isLaunchInBackground

public static boolean isLaunchInBackground(
ILaunchConfiguration configuration)
Returns whether the given configuration should be launched in the background.

Parameters:
configuration - the configuration
Returns:
whether the configuration is configured to launch in the background

getLaunchConfigurationManager

protected org.eclipse.debug.internal.ui.launchConfigurations.LaunchConfigurationManager getLaunchConfigurationManager()
Convenience accessor


isValid

public boolean isValid(
ILaunchConfiguration config)
Description copied from interface: ILaunchConfigurationTab
Returns whether this tab is in a valid state in the context of the specified launch configuration.

This information is typically used by the launch configuration dialog to decide when it is okay to launch.

Specified by:
isValid in interface ILaunchConfigurationTab
Overrides:
isValid in class AbstractLaunchConfigurationTab
Parameters:
config - launch configuration which provides context for validating this tab. This value must not be null.
Returns:
whether this tab is in a valid state
See Also:
ILaunchConfigurationTab.isValid(ILaunchConfiguration)

setDefaults

public void setDefaults(
ILaunchConfigurationWorkingCopy config)
Description copied from interface: ILaunchConfigurationTab
Initializes the given launch configuration with default values for this tab. This method is called when a new launch configuration is created such that the configuration can be initialized with meaningful values. This method may be called before this tab's control is created.

Parameters:
config - launch configuration

performApply

public void performApply(
ILaunchConfigurationWorkingCopy configuration)
Description copied from interface: ILaunchConfigurationTab
Copies values from this tab into the given launch configuration.

Parameters:
configuration - launch configuration

getName

public 
String getName()
Description copied from interface: ILaunchConfigurationTab
Returns the name of this tab.

Returns:
the name of this tab

getId

public 
String getId()
Description copied from class: AbstractLaunchConfigurationTab
Returns this tab's unique identifier or null if none. By default, null is returned. Subclasses should override as necessary.

Tab identifiers allow contributed tabs to be ordered relative to one another.

Overrides:
getId in class AbstractLaunchConfigurationTab
Returns:
tab id or null
Since:
3.3
See Also:
AbstractLaunchConfigurationTab.getId()

canSave

public boolean canSave()
Description copied from interface: ILaunchConfigurationTab
Returns whether this tab is in a state that allows the launch configuration whose values this tab is showing to be saved. This differs from isValid() in that canSave() determines if this tab prevents the current launch configuration from being saved, whereas isValid() determines if this tab prevents the current launch configuration from being launched.

This information is typically used by the launch configuration dialog to decide when it is okay to save a launch configuration.

Specified by:
canSave in interface ILaunchConfigurationTab
Overrides:
canSave in class AbstractLaunchConfigurationTab
Returns:
whether this tab is in a state that allows the current launch configuration to be saved
See Also:
ILaunchConfigurationTab.canSave()

getImage

public 
Image getImage()
Description copied from interface: ILaunchConfigurationTab
Returns the image for this tab, or null if none

Specified by:
getImage in interface ILaunchConfigurationTab
Overrides:
getImage in class AbstractLaunchConfigurationTab
Returns:
the image for this tab, or null if none
See Also:
ILaunchConfigurationTab.getImage()

activated

public void activated(
ILaunchConfigurationWorkingCopy workingCopy)
Description copied from class: AbstractLaunchConfigurationTab
This method was added to the ILaunchConfigurationTab interface in the 3.0 release to allow tabs to distinguish between a tab being activated and a tab group be initialized for the first time, from a selected launch configuration. To maintain backwards compatible behavior, the default implementation provided, calls this tab's initializeFrom method. Tabs should override this method as required.

The launch tab framework was originally designed to take care of inter tab communication by applying attributes from the active tab to the launch configuration being edited, when a tab is exited, and by initializing a tab when activated. The addition of the methods activated and deactivated allow tabs to determine the appropriate course of action.

Specified by:
activated in interface ILaunchConfigurationTab
Overrides:
activated in class AbstractLaunchConfigurationTab
Parameters:
workingCopy - the launch configuration being edited
See Also:
ILaunchConfigurationTab.activated(org.eclipse.debug.core.ILaunchConfigurationWorkingCopy)

deactivated

public void deactivated(
ILaunchConfigurationWorkingCopy workingCopy)
Description copied from class: AbstractLaunchConfigurationTab
This method was added to the ILaunchConfigurationTab interface in the 3.0 release to allow tabs to distinguish between a tab being deactivated and saving its attributes to a launch configuration. To maintain backwards compatible behavior, the default implementation provided, calls this tab's performApply method. Tabs should override this method as required.

The launch tab framework was originally designed to take care of inter tab communication by applying attributes from the active tab to the launch configuration being edited, when a tab is exited, and by initializing a tab when activated.

Specified by:
deactivated in interface ILaunchConfigurationTab
Overrides:
deactivated in class AbstractLaunchConfigurationTab
Parameters:
workingCopy - the launch configuration being edited

ILaunchConfigurationTab.deactivated(org.eclipse.debug.core.ILaunchConfigurationWorkingCopy)
