Interface IPathEditorInput

All Superinterfaces:
IAdaptable, IEditorInput
All Known Subinterfaces:
All Known Implementing Classes:
FileEditorInput, FileInPlaceEditorInput

public interface IPathEditorInput
extends IEditorInput

This interface defines an editor input based on the local file system path of a file.

Clients implementing this editor input interface should override Object.equals(Object) to answer true for two inputs that are the same. The IWorkbenchPage.openEditor APIs are dependent on this to find an editor with the same input.

Path-oriented editors should support this as a valid input type, and can allow full read-write editing of its content.

All editor inputs must implement the IAdaptable interface; extensions are managed by the platform's adapter manager.
