public abstract class TextChange
extends TextEditBasedChange

A text change is a special change object that applies a text edit tree to a document. The text change manages the text edit tree. Access to the document must be provided by concrete subclasses via the method aquireDocument, commitDocument, and releaseDocument.

A text change offers the ability to access the original content of the document as well as creating a preview of the change. The edit tree gets copied when creating any kind of preview. Therefore no region updating on the original edit tree takes place when requesting a preview (for more information on region updating see class TextEdit. If region tracking is required for a preview, it can be enabled via a call to the method setKeepPreviewEdits. If enabled, the text change keeps the copied edit tree executed for the preview, allowing clients to map an original edit to an executed edit. The executed edit can then be used to determine its position in the preview.

Note: this class is not intended to be subclassed outside the refactoring framework.

Since:
3.0
Restriction:
This class is not intended to be subclassed by clients.

Overrides:
addTextEditGroup in class TextEditBasedChange
Parameters:
group - the text edit group to add

addTextEditChangeGroup

public void addTextEditChangeGroup(

Parameters:
edit - the text edit to add
Throws:
MalformedTreeException - if the edit can't be added. Reason is that is overlaps with an already existing edit
Since:
3.1

acquireDocument

protected abstract 
IDocument acquireDocument(
IProgressMonitor pm)
                                      throws 
CoreException
Acquires a reference to the document to be changed by this text change. A document acquired by this call MUST be released via a call to releaseDocument(IDocument, IProgressMonitor).

The method releaseDocument must be called as many times as aquireDocument has been called.

Parameters:
pm - a progress monitor
Returns:
a reference to the document to be changed
Throws:
CoreException - if the document can't be acquired

commit

protected abstract void commit(
IDocument document,
                               
IProgressMonitor pm)
                        throws 
CoreException
Commits the document acquired via a call to aquireDocument. It is up to the implementors of this method to decide what committing a document means. Typically, the content of the document is written back to the file system.

Parameters:
document - the document to commit
pm - a progress monitor
Throws:
CoreException - if the document can't be committed

releaseDocument

protected abstract void releaseDocument(
IDocument document,
                                        
IProgressMonitor pm)
                                 throws 
CoreException
Releases the document acquired via a call to aquireDocument.

Parameters:
document - the document to release
pm - a progress monitor
Throws:
CoreException - if the document can't be released

createUndoChange

protected abstract 
Change createUndoChange(
UndoEdit edit)
Hook to create an undo change for the given undo edit. This hook gets called while performing the change to construct the corresponding undo change object.

Parameters:
edit - the UndoEdit to create an undo change for
Returns:
the undo change or null if no undo change can be created. Returning null results in the fact that the whole change tree can't be undone. So returning null is only recommended if an exception occurred during the creation of the undo change.

perform

public 
Change perform(
IProgressMonitor pm)
               throws 
CoreException
Performs this change. If this method is called on an invalid or disabled change object the result is unspecified. Changes should in general not respond to IProgressMonitor.isCanceled() since canceling a change tree in the middle of its execution leaves the workspace in a half changed state.

Specified by:
perform in class Change
Parameters:
pm - a progress monitor
Returns:
the undo change for this change object or null if no undo is provided
Throws:
CoreException - if an error occurred during change execution

performEdits

protected 
UndoEdit performEdits(
IDocument document)
                         throws 
BadLocationException,
                                
MalformedTreeException
Executes the text edits on the given document. Subclasses that override this method should call super.performEdits(document).

Parameters:
document - the document
Returns:
an object representing the undo of the executed edits
Throws:
MalformedTreeException - is thrown if the edit tree isn't in a valid state. This exception is thrown before any edit is executed. So the document is still in its original state.
BadLocationException - is thrown if one of the edits in the tree can't be executed. The state of the document is undefined if this exception is thrown.
Since:
3.5

getCurrentDocument

public 
IDocument getCurrentDocument(
IProgressMonitor pm)
                             throws 
CoreException
Returns the document this text change is associated to. The document returned is computed at the point in time when this method is called. So calling this method multiple times may return different document instances.

The returned document must not be modified by the client. Doing so will result in an unexpected behavior when the change is performed.

Parameters:
pm - a progress monitor to report progress or null if no progress reporting is desired
Returns:
the document this change is working on
Throws:
CoreException - if the document can't be acquired

getCurrentContent
