All Known Implementing Classes:
public interface Listener
Listener provide a simple
handleEvent() method that is used internally
by SWT to dispatch events.
After creating an instance of a class that implements this interface
it can be added to a widget using the
addListener(int eventType, Listener handler) method and
removed using the
removeListener (int eventType, Listener handler) method.
When the specified event occurs,
be sent to the instance.
Classes which implement this interface are described within SWT as
providing the untyped listener API. Typically, widgets will
also provide a higher-level typed listener API, that is based
on the standard
Note that, since all internal SWT event dispatching is based on untyped
listeners, it is simple to build subsets of SWT for use on memory
constrained, small footprint devices, by removing the classes and
methods which implement the typed listener API.
