Interface INavigationHistory

public interface INavigationHistory

Manages a list of entries to keep a history of locations on editors, enabling the user to go back and forward without losing context. The history is a list of INavigationLocation and a pointer to the current location. Whenever the back or forward action runs the history restores the previous or next location. The back and/or forward actions should not change the content of the history in any way. If the user steps N times in one direction (back or forward) and then N times to the oposite direction, the editor and location should be exactly the same as before. Clients must guarantee that the current location is always in the history, which can be done either by marking a new location or by updating the current location. Not intended to be implemented by clients.

This interface is not intended to be implemented by clients.
