Eclipse Platform
Release 3.5

org.eclipse.debug.ui
Interface IDetailPaneFactory


public interface IDetailPaneFactory

A detail pane factory creates one or more types of detail panes.

Detail pane factories are contributed via the org.eclipse.debug.ui.detailPaneFactories extension point. Following is an example of a detail pane factory extension:

 <extension point="org.eclipse.debug.ui.detailPaneFactories">
     <detailFactories
           class="org.eclipse.temp.TableDetailPaneFactory"
           name="Table Detail Factory">
     </detailFactories>
 </extension>
 

Clients contributing a detail pane factory are intended to implement this interface.

Since:
3.3
