Method Detail

updateElement

void updateElement(
Object parent,
                   int index)
Called when a previously-blank item becomes visible in the TreeViewer. If the content provider knows the child element for the given parent at this index, it should respond by calling TreeViewer.replace(Object, int, Object). The content provider should also update the child count for any replaced element by calling TreeViewer.setChildCount(Object, int). If the given current child count is already correct, setChildCount does not have to be called since a call to replace will not change the child count. NOTE #updateElement(int index) can be used to determine selection values. If TableViewer#replace(Object, int) is not called before returning from this method, selections may have missing or stale elements. In this situation it is suggested that the selection is asked for again after replace() has been called.

Parameters:
parent - The parent of the element, or the viewer's input if the element to update is a root element
index - The index of the element to update in the tree

updateChildCount

void updateChildCount(
Object element,
                      int currentChildCount)
Called when the TreeViewer needs an up-to-date child count for the given element, for example from StructuredViewer.refresh() and StructuredViewer.setInput(Object). If the content provider knows the given element, it should respond by calling TreeViewer.setChildCount(Object, int). If the given current child count is already correct, no action has to be taken by this content provider.

Parameters:
element - The element for which an up-to-date child count is needed, or the viewer's input if the number of root elements is requested
currentChildCount - The current child count for the element that needs updating

getParent

Object getParent(
Object element)
Returns the parent for the given element, or null indicating that the parent can't be computed. In this case the tree-structured viewer can't expand a given node correctly if requested.

Parameters:
element - the element
Returns:
the parent element, or null if it has none or if the parent cannot be computed
