public interface IRunnableWithProgress

The IRunnableWithProgress interface should be implemented by any class whose instances are intended to be executed as a long-running operation. Long-running operations are typically presented at the UI via a modal dialog showing a progress indicator and a Cancel button. The class must define a run method that takes a progress monitor. The run method is usually not invoked directly, but rather by passing the IRunnableWithProgress to the run method of an IRunnableContext, which provides the UI for the progress monitor and Cancel button.

Method Summary
 void run ( IProgressMonitor monitor)
          Runs this operation.

Method Detail


void run(
IProgressMonitor monitor)
Runs this operation. Progress should be reported to the given progress monitor. This method is usually invoked by an IRunnableContext's run method, which supplies the progress monitor. A request to cancel the operation should be honored and acknowledged by throwing InterruptedException.

monitor - the progress monitor to use to display progress and receive requests for cancelation
InvocationTargetException - if the run method must propagate a checked exception, it should wrap it inside an InvocationTargetException; runtime exceptions are automatically wrapped in an InvocationTargetException by the calling context
InterruptedException - if the operation detects a request to cancel, using IProgressMonitor.isCanceled(), it should exit by throwing InterruptedException
