Method Detail

linkCycleActionPair

public static void linkCycleActionPair(
ActionFactory.IWorkbenchAction next,
                                       
ActionFactory.IWorkbenchAction previous)
Establishes bi-direction connections between the forward and backward actions of a cycle pair.

Example usage:

 ActionFactory.IWorkbenchAction nextEditorAction = ActionFactory.NEXT_EDITOR
                .create(window);
 ActionFactory.IWorkbenchAction previousEditorAction = ActionFactory.PREVIOUS_EDITOR
                .create(window);
 ActionFactory.linkCycleActionPair(nextEditorAction, previousEditorAction);
 

Parameters:
next - the action that moves forward
previous - the action that moves backward

create

public abstract 
ActionFactory.IWorkbenchAction create(
IWorkbenchWindow window)
Creates a new standard action for the given workbench window. The action has an id as specified by the particular factory.

Actions automatically register listeners against the workbench window so that they can keep their enablement state up to date. Ordinarily, the window's references to these listeners will be dropped automatically when the window closes. However, if the client needs to get rid of an action while the window is still open, the client must call disposeto give the action an opportunity to deregister its listeners and to perform any other cleanup.

Parameters:
window - the workbench window
Returns:
the workbench action

getId

public 
String getId()
Returns the id of this action factory.

Returns:
the id of actions created by this action factory

getCommandId

public 
String getCommandId()
