Eclipse Platform
Release 3.5

org.eclipse.swt.accessibility
Interface AccessibleTextListener

All Superinterfaces:
EventListener, org.eclipse.swt.internal.SWTEventListener
All Known Implementing Classes:
AccessibleTextAdapter

public interface AccessibleTextListener
extends org.eclipse.swt.internal.SWTEventListener

Classes that implement this interface provide methods that deal with the events that are generated when an accessibility client sends a message to a control.

After creating an instance of a class that implements this interface it can be added to a control using the addAccessibleTextListener method and removed using the removeAccessibleTextListener method. When a client requests information the appropriate method will be invoked.

Note: Accessibility clients use child identifiers to specify whether they want information about a control or one of its children. Child identifiers are increasing integers beginning with 0. The identifier CHILDID_SELF represents the control itself.

Note: This interface is typically used by implementors of a custom control to provide very detailed information about the control instance to accessibility clients.

Since:
3.0
