Eclipse Platform
Release 3.5

org.eclipse.jface.bindings
Class BindingManager

java.lang.Object
  extended by 

org.eclipse.core.commands.common.EventManager
      extended by 

org.eclipse.core.commands.common.HandleObjectManager
          extended by 
org.eclipse.jface.bindings.BindingManager
All Implemented Interfaces:
IContextManagerListener, ISchemeListener

public final class BindingManager
extends HandleObjectManager
implements IContextManagerListener, ISchemeListener

A central repository for bindings -- both in the defined and undefined states. Schemes and bindings can be created and retrieved using this manager. It is possible to listen to changes in the collection of schemes and bindings by adding a listener to the manager.

The binding manager is very sensitive to performance. Misusing the manager can render an application unenjoyable to use. As such, each of the public methods states the current run-time performance. In future releases, it is guaranteed that the method will run in at least the stated time constraint -- though it might get faster. Where possible, we have also tried to be memory efficient.

Since:
3.1

Constructor Detail

BindingManager

public BindingManager(
ContextManager contextManager,
                      
CommandManager commandManager)

Constructs a new instance of BindingManager.

This method completes in amortized constant time (O(1)).

Parameters:

commandManager - The command manager that will support this binding manager. This value must not be null.
Method Detail

addBinding

public final void addBinding(
Binding binding)

Adds a single new binding to the existing array of bindings. If the array is currently null, then a new array is created and this binding is added to it. This method does not detect duplicates.

This method completes in amortized O(1).

Parameters:
binding - The binding to be added; must not be null.

addBindingManagerListener

public final void addBindingManagerListener(

Parameters:
listener - The listener to attach; must not be null.

contextManagerChanged

public final void contextManagerChanged(
ContextManagerEvent contextManagerEvent)

Parameters:
contextManagerEvent - the context manager event. Guaranteed not to be null.

getActiveBindingsDisregardingContext

public final

Computes the bindings for the current state of the application, but disregarding the current contexts. This can be useful when trying to display all the possible bindings.

This method completes in O(n), where n is the number of bindings.

Returns:
A map of trigger (TriggerSequence) to bindings ( Collection containing Binding). This map may be empty, but it is never null.

getActiveBindingsDisregardingContextFlat

This method completes in O(n), where n is the number of bindings.

Returns:
All of the active bindings (Binding), not sorted in any fashion. This collection may be empty, but it is never null.

getActiveBindingsDisregardingContextFor

public final 
TriggerSequence[] getActiveBindingsDisregardingContextFor(
ParameterizedCommand parameterizedCommand)

Returns the active bindings for a particular command identifier, but discounting the current contexts. This method operates in O(n) time over the number of bindings.

This method completes in O(1). If the active bindings are not yet computed, then this completes in O(nn), where n is the number of bindings.

Parameters:

This method completes in O(1). If the active bindings are not yet computed, then this completes in O(nn), where n is the number of bindings.

Parameters:
parameterizedCommand - The fully-parameterized command whose bindings are requested. This argument may be null.
Returns:
The array of active triggers (TriggerSequence) for a particular command identifier. This value is guaranteed to never be null, but it may be empty.

getActiveBindingsFor

public final 
TriggerSequence[] getActiveBindingsFor(
String commandId)

Returns the active bindings for a particular command identifier. This method operates in O(n) time over the number of bindings.

This method completes in O(1). If the active bindings are not yet computed, then this completes in O(nn), where n is the number of bindings.

Parameters:
commandId - The identifier of the command whose bindings are requested. This argument may be null. It is assumed that the command has no parameters.

getBestActiveBindingFor

public final 
TriggerSequence getBestActiveBindingFor(
String commandId)
Gets the best active binding for a command. The best binding is the one that would be most appropriate to show in a menu. Bindings which belong to a child scheme are given preference over those in a parent scheme. Bindings which belong to a particular locale or platform are given preference over those that do not. The rest of the calculaton is based most on various concepts of "length", as well as giving some modifier keys preference (e.g., Alt is less likely to appear than Ctrl).

Parameters:
commandId - The identifier of the command for which the best active binding should be retrieved; must not be null.
Returns:
The trigger sequence for the best binding; may be null if no bindings are active for the given command.

Bindings which belong to a child scheme are given preference over those in a parent scheme. The rest of the calculaton is based most on various concepts of "length", as well as giving some modifier keys preference (e.g., Alt is less likely to appear than Ctrl).

Parameters:

Returns:
The active platform; never null.

Returns:
A scheme with the given identifier.

isPartialMatch

public 
Collection getConflictsFor(
TriggerSequence sequence)
Provides the current conflicts in the keybindings for the given TriggerSequence as a Collection of Binding

Parameters:

                           throws 
NotDefinedException

Selects one of the schemes as the active scheme. This scheme must be defined.

This method completes in O(n), where n is the height of the context tree.

Parameters:
scheme - The scheme to become active; must not be null.
Throws:
NotDefinedException - If the given scheme is currently undefined.

setBindings

public final void setBindings(
Binding[] bindings)

Changes the set of bindings for this binding manager. Changing the set of bindings all at once ensures that: (1) duplicates are removed; and (2) avoids unnecessary intermediate computations. This method clears the existing bindings, but does not trigger a recomputation (other method calls are required to do that).

This method completes in O(n), where n is the number of bindings.

Parameters:
bindings - The new array of bindings; may be null. This set is copied into a local data structure.

setLocale

public final void setLocale(
String locale)

Changes the locale for this binding manager. The locale can be used to provide locale-specific bindings. If the locale is different than the current locale, this will force a recomputation of the bindings. The locale is in the same format as Locale.getDefault().toString().

This method completes in O(1).

Parameters:
locale - The new locale; must not be null.
See Also:
Locale.getDefault()

setPlatform

public final void setPlatform(
String platform)

Changes the platform for this binding manager. The platform can be used to provide platform-specific bindings. If the platform is different than the current platform, then this will force a recomputation of the bindings. The locale is in the same format as SWT.getPlatform().

This method completes in O(1).

Parameters:
platform - The new platform; must not be null.
See Also:
SWT.getPlatform(), Util.getWS()
