           Description

Interface Summary
IBindingManagerListener An instance of BindingManagerListener can be used by clients to receive notification of changes to an instance of BindingManager.
ISchemeListener An instance of ISchemeListener can be used by clients to receive notification of changes to one or more instances of IScheme.
 

Class Summary
Binding A binding is a link between user input and the triggering of a particular command.
BindingManager A central repository for bindings -- both in the defined and undefined states.
BindingManagerEvent An instance of this class describes changes to an instance of BindingManager.
Scheme An instance of IScheme is a handle representing a binding scheme as defined by the extension point org.eclipse.ui.bindings.
SchemeEvent An instance of this class describes changes to an instance of IScheme.
Trigger The abstract class for any object that can be used as a trigger for a binding.
TriggerSequence A sequence of one or more triggers.
 

Package org.eclipse.jface.bindings Description

Provides support for bindings between commands and various user input events (e.g., keyboard shortcuts).

Package Specification

This package provides the common classes and abstract classes required to provide binding support.

All the real work in this package is carried out by the BindingManager, and most work with bindings can be carried out directly with it. The binding manager manages a collection of bindings, and decides which bindings are active at any point in time. By changes the various properties of the manager, the active bindings will change. The binding manager implements a caching scheme that is optimized for an infreqeuntly changing set of bindings, but frequently changing properties.

The binding manager also manages schemes. A scheme is a grouping of bindings. To create a scheme, use BindingManager.getScheme(String). The scheme must then be defined before it can be used.

If you wish to implement your own type of binding, then you must subclass Trigger and TriggerSequence. Then, simply use these subclasses with the BindingManager.
