Eclipse Platform

Interface IActionDelegate2

All Superinterfaces:
All Known Implementing Classes:
AbstractRulerActionDelegate, ActionDelegate, AddMemoryRenderingActionDelegate, BookmarkRulerAction, DebugAction, org.eclipse.debug.internal.ui.actions.ExecutionAction, OpenLaunchDialogAction, RulerEnableDisableBreakpointActionDelegate, RulerToggleBreakpointActionDelegate, RunAction, RunToLineActionDelegate, SelectRulerAction, TaskRulerAction, org.eclipse.debug.internal.ui.actions.breakpoints.ToggleBreakpointObjectActionDelegate, ToggleMethodBreakpointActionDelegate, ToggleWatchpointActionDelegate

public interface IActionDelegate2
extends IActionDelegate

Interface extension to IActionDelegate adding lifecycle methods. In addition, a runWithEvent method that includes the triggering SWT event.

An action delegate that implements this interface will have its runWithEvent(IAction, Event) called instead of its run(IAction) method.

Clients should implement this interface, in addition to IActionDelegate or sub-interfaces, if interested in the triggering event or in the lifecycle of the delegate object.

Clients can choose to subclass the provided abstract implementation org. eclipse. ui. actions. ActionDelegate or implement the interface directly.

Method Detail


void init(
IAction action)
Allows the action delegate to initialize itself after being created by the proxy action. This lifecycle method is called after the action delegate has been created and before any other method of the action delegate is called.

action - the proxy action that handles the presentation portion of the action.


void dispose()
Allows the action delegate to clean up. This lifecycle method is called when the proxy action is done with this action delegate. This is the last method called.


void runWithEvent(
IAction action,
Event event)
Performs this action, passing the SWT event which triggered it. This method is called by the proxy action when the action has been triggered. Implement this method to do the actual work.

Note: This method is called instead of run(IAction).

action - the action proxy that handles the presentation portion of the action
event - the SWT event which triggered this action being run
