Eclipse Platform
Release 3.5

org.eclipse.jface.text
Interface ITextViewerExtension

All Known Implementing Classes:
ProjectionViewer, SourceViewer, TextConsoleViewer, TextViewer

public interface ITextViewerExtension

Extension interface for ITextViewer.

This extension interface replaces the event consumer mechanism ( ITextViewer.setEventConsumer(IEventConsumer)) with a set of methods that allow to manage a sequence of VerifyKeyListenerobjects. It also adds

  • access to the control of this viewer
  • marked region support as in emacs
  • control of the viewer's redraw behavior by introducing setRedraw(boolean)
  • access to the viewer's rewrite target.
A rewrite target ( IRewriteTarget) represents an facade offering the necessary methods to manipulate a document that is the input document of a text viewer.

Since:
2.0

Method Summary
 void appendVerifyKeyListener ( VerifyKeyListener listener)
          Appends a verify key listener to the viewer's list of verify key listeners.
  Control getControl ()
          Returns the control of this viewer.
 int getMark ()
          Returns the position of the mark, -1 if the mark is not set.
  IRewriteTarget getRewriteTarget ()
          Returns the viewer's rewrite target.
 void prependVerifyKeyListener ( VerifyKeyListener listener)
          Inserts the verify key listener at the beginning of the viewer's list of verify key listeners.
 void removeVerifyKeyListener ( VerifyKeyListener listener)
          Removes the verify key listener from the viewer's list of verify key listeners.
 void setMark (int offset)
          Sets a mark at the given offset or clears the mark if the specified offset is -1.
 void setRedraw (boolean redraw)
          Enables/disables the redrawing of this text viewer.
 

Method Detail

prependVerifyKeyListener

void prependVerifyKeyListener(
VerifyKeyListener listener)
Inserts the verify key listener at the beginning of the viewer's list of verify key listeners. If the listener is already registered with the viewer this call moves the listener to the beginning of the list.

Parameters:
listener - the listener to be inserted

appendVerifyKeyListener

void appendVerifyKeyListener(
VerifyKeyListener listener)
Appends a verify key listener to the viewer's list of verify key listeners. If the listener is already registered with the viewer this call moves the listener to the end of the list.

Parameters:
listener - the listener to be added

removeVerifyKeyListener

void removeVerifyKeyListener(
VerifyKeyListener listener)
Removes the verify key listener from the viewer's list of verify key listeners. If the listener is not registered with this viewer, this call has no effect.

Parameters:
listener - the listener to be removed

getControl

Control getControl()
Returns the control of this viewer.

Returns:
the control of this viewer

setMark

void setMark(int offset)
Sets a mark at the given offset or clears the mark if the specified offset is -1. If a mark is set and the selection is empty, cut and copy actions performed on this text viewer work on the region described by the positions of the mark and the cursor.

Parameters:
offset - the offset of the mark

getMark

int getMark()
Returns the position of the mark, -1 if the mark is not set.

Returns:
the position of the mark or -1 if no mark is set

setRedraw

void setRedraw(boolean redraw)
Enables/disables the redrawing of this text viewer. This temporarily disconnects the viewer from its underlying StyledTextwidget. While being disconnected only the viewer's selection may be changed using setSelectedRange. Any direct manipulation of the widget as well as calls to methods that change the viewer's presentation state (such as enabling the segmented view) are not allowed. When redrawing is disabled the viewer does not send out any selection or view port change notification. When redrawing is enabled again, a selection change notification is sent out for the selected range and this range is revealed causing a view port changed notification.

Parameters:
redraw - true to enable redrawing, false otherwise

getRewriteTarget

IRewriteTarget getRewriteTarget()
Returns the viewer's rewrite target.

Returns:
the viewer's rewrite target
