Eclipse Platform
Release 3.5

org.eclipse.jface.text
Interface IUndoManager

All Known Implementing Classes:
DefaultUndoManager, TextViewerUndoManager

public interface IUndoManager

An undo manager is connected to at most one ITextViewer.

It monitors the text viewer and keeps a history of the changes applied to the viewer. The undo manager groups those changes into user interactions which on an undo request are rolled back in one atomic change.

In order to provide backward compatibility for clients of IUndoManager, extension interfaces are used as a means of evolution. The following extension interfaces exist:

Clients may implement this interface or use the standard implementation TextViewerUndoManager.

TextViewerUndoManager, IUndoManagerExtension

 void redo ()
          Repeats the most recently rolled back text change.
 boolean redoable ()
          Returns whether at least one text change can be repeated.
 void reset ()
          Resets the history of the undo manager.
 void setMaximalUndoLevel (int undoLevel)

Method Detail

connect

void connect(
ITextViewer viewer)
Connects this undo manager to the given text viewer.

Parameters:
viewer - the viewer the undo manager is connected to

disconnect

void disconnect()
Disconnects this undo manager from its text viewer. If this undo manager hasn't been connected before this operation has no effect.


beginCompoundChange

void beginCompoundChange()
Signals the undo manager that all subsequent changes until endCompoundChange is called are to be undone in one piece.


endCompoundChange

void endCompoundChange()
Signals the undo manager that the sequence of changes which started with beginCompoundChange has been finished. All subsequent changes are considered to be individually undo-able.


reset

void reset()
Resets the history of the undo manager. After that call, there aren't any undo-able or redo-able text changes.


setMaximalUndoLevel

void setMaximalUndoLevel(int undoLevel)
The given parameter determines the maximal length of the history remembered by the undo manager.

Parameters:
undoLevel - the length of this undo manager's history

undoable

boolean undoable()
Returns whether at least one text change can be rolled back.

Returns:
true if at least one text change can be rolled back

redoable

boolean redoable()
Returns whether at least one text change can be repeated. A text change can be repeated only if it was executed and rolled back.
