This interface is not intended to be implemented by clients.

Since:
2.0
See Also:
IPageLayout.createPlaceholderFolder(java.lang.String, int, float, java.lang.String)
Restriction:

Method Summary
 void addPlaceholder ( String viewId)
          Adds a view placeholder to this folder.

          Returns the property with the given id or null.
 void setProperty ( String id, String value)
          Sets the given property to the given value.
 

Method Detail

addPlaceholder

void addPlaceholder(
String viewId)
Adds a view placeholder to this folder. A view placeholder is used to define the position of a view before the view appears. Initially, it is invisible; however, if the user ever opens a view whose compound id matches the placeholder, the view will appear at the same location as the placeholder. See the IPageLayout type documentation for more details about compound ids. If the placeholder contains wildcards, it remains in the layout, otherwise it is replaced by the view. If the primary id of the placeholder has no wildcards, it must refer to a view contributed to the workbench's view extension point (named "org.eclipse.ui.views").

Parameters:
viewId - the compound view id (wildcards allowed)

getProperty

String getProperty(
String id)
Returns the property with the given id or null. Folder properties are an extensible mechanism for perspective authors to customize the appearance of view stacks. The list of customizable properties is determined by the presentation factory.

Parameters:
id - Must not be null.
Returns:
property value, or null if the property is not set.
Since:
3.3

setProperty

void setProperty(
String id,
                 
String value)
Sets the given property to the given value. Folder properties are an extensible mechanism for perspective authors to customize the appearance of view stacks. The list of customizable properties is determined by the presentation factory.

These folder properties are intended to be set during IPerspectiveFactory#createInitialLayout. Any subsequent changes to property values after this method completes will not fire change notifications and will not be reflected in the presentation.

Parameters:
id - property id. Must not be null.
value - property value. null will clear the property.
Since:
3.3
