Eclipse Platform
Release 3.5

org.eclipse.ui.commands
Interface IHandler


Deprecated. Please use the "org.eclipse.core.commands" plug-in instead.

public interface IHandler

A handler is the pluggable piece of a command that handles execution. Each command can have zero or more handlers associated with it (in general), of which only one will be active at any given moment in time. When the command is asked to execute, it will simply pass that request on to its active handler, if any.

This interface is not intended to be extended by clients.

Since:
3.0

addHandlerListener

void addHandlerListener(
IHandlerListener handlerListener)
Deprecated.

dispose

void dispose()
Deprecated. 
Disposes of this handler. This method is run once when the object is no longer referenced. This can be used as an opportunity to unhook listeners from other objects.

the result of the execution. Reserved for future use, must be null.
Throws:
ExecutionException - if an exception occurred during execution.

getAttributeValuesByName

Map getAttributeValuesByName()

removeHandlerListener

void removeHandlerListener(
IHandlerListener handlerListener)
Deprecated. 
Unregisters an instance of IPropertyListener listening for changes to properties of this instance.
