Eclipse Platform
Release 3.5

org.eclipse.jface.text.source
Interface IOverviewRuler

All Superinterfaces:
IVerticalRuler, IVerticalRulerInfo
All Known Implementing Classes:
OverviewRuler

public interface IOverviewRuler
extends IVerticalRuler

This interface defines a visual component which may serve text viewers as an overview annotation presentation area. This means, presentation of annotations is independent from the actual view port of the text viewer. The annotations of the viewer's whole document are visible in the overview ruler.

This interfaces embodies three contracts:

  • The overview ruler retrieves the annotations it presents from an annotation model.
  • The ruler is a visual component which must be integrated in a hierarchy of SWT controls.
  • The ruler provides interested clients with mapping and interaction information. This covers the mapping between coordinates of the ruler's control and line numbers based on the connected text viewer's document (IVerticalRulerInfo).

Clients may implement this interface or use the default implementation provided by OverviewlRuler.

Since:
2.1

Method Detail

hasAnnotation

boolean hasAnnotation(int y)
Returns whether there is an annotation an the given vertical coordinate. This method takes the compression factor of the overview ruler into account.

Parameters:
y - the y-coordinate
Returns:
true if there is an annotation, false otherwise

getAnnotationHeight

int getAnnotationHeight()
Returns the height of the visual presentation of an annotation in this overview ruler. Assumes that all annotations are represented using the same height.

Returns:
int the visual height of an annotation

setAnnotationTypeColor

void setAnnotationTypeColor(
Object annotationType,
                            
Color color)
Sets the color for the given annotation type in this overview ruler.

Parameters:
annotationType - the annotation type
color - the color

setAnnotationTypeLayer

void setAnnotationTypeLayer(
Object annotationType,
                            int layer)
Sets the drawing layer for the given annotation type in this overview ruler.

Parameters:
annotationType - the annotation type
layer - the drawing layer

addAnnotationType

void addAnnotationType(
Object annotationType)
Adds the given annotation type to this overview ruler. Starting with this call, annotations of the given type are shown in the overview ruler.

Parameters:
annotationType - the annotation type

removeAnnotationType

void removeAnnotationType(
Object annotationType)
Removes the given annotation type from this overview ruler. Annotations of the given type are no longer shown in the overview ruler.

Parameters:
annotationType - the annotation type

addHeaderAnnotationType

void addHeaderAnnotationType(
Object annotationType)
Adds the given annotation type to the header of this ruler. Starting with this call, the presence of annotations is tracked and the header is drawn in the configured color.

Parameters:
annotationType - the annotation type to be tracked

removeHeaderAnnotationType

void removeHeaderAnnotationType(
Object annotationType)
Removes the given annotation type from the header of this ruler. The presence of annotations of the given type is no longer tracked and the header is drawn in the default color, depending on the other configured configured annotation types.

Parameters:
annotationType - the annotation type to be removed

getHeaderControl

Control getHeaderControl()
Returns this rulers header control. This is the little area between the top of the text widget and the top of this overview ruler.

Returns:
the header control of this overview ruler.
