Eclipse Platform
Release 3.5

org.eclipse.ui.dialogs
Class FileSystemElement

java.lang.Object
  extended by 
org.eclipse.ui.dialogs.FileSystemElement
All Implemented Interfaces:
IAdaptable

public class FileSystemElement
extends Object
implements IAdaptable

Instances of this class represent files or file-like entities (eg.- zip file entries) on the local file system. They do not represent resources within the workbench. This distinction is made because the representation of a file system resource is significantly different from that of a workbench resource. If self represents a collection (eg.- file system directory, zip directory) then its icon will be the folderIcon static field. Otherwise (ie.- self represents a file system file) self's icon is stored in field "icon", and is determined by the extension of the file that self represents. This class is adaptable, and implements one adapter itself, namely the IWorkbenchAdapter adapter used for navigation and display in the workbench.
