Eclipse Platform
Release 3.5

org.eclipse.jface.text.source
Interface ILineDiffer


public interface ILineDiffer

Protocol that allows direct access to line information. Usually, implementations will also implement IAnnotationModel, which only allows Iterator based access to annotations.

ILineDiffer also allows to revert any lines to their original contents as defined by the quick diff reference used by the receiver.

This interface may be implemented by clients.

In order to provide backward compatibility for clients of ILineDiffer, extension interfaces are used to provide a means of evolution. The following extension interface exists:

  • ILineDifferExtension (since version 3.1): introducing the concept suspending and resuming an ILineDiffer.
  • ILineDifferExtension2 (since version 3.3): allowing to query the suspension state of an ILineDiffer.

Since:
3.0

Method Summary
  ILineDiffInfo getLineInfo (int line)
          Determines the line state for line line in the targeted document.
 int restoreAfterLine (int line)
          Restores the deleted lines after line.
 void revertBlock (int line)
          Reverts a block of modified / added lines to their original state, including any deleted lines inside the block or at its borders.
 void revertLine (int line)
          Reverts a single changed line to its original state, not touching any lines that are deleted at its borders.
 void revertSelection (int line, int nLines)
          Reverts a range of lines to their original state, including any deleted lines inside the block or at its borders.
