Interface IWorkbenchListener

public interface IWorkbenchListener

Interface for listening to workbench lifecycle events.

This interface may be implemented by clients.

See Also:
IWorkbench.addWorkbenchListener(org.eclipse.ui.IWorkbenchListener), IWorkbench.removeWorkbenchListener(org.eclipse.ui.IWorkbenchListener)

Method Summary
 void postShutdown ( IWorkbench workbench)
          Performs arbitrary finalization after the workbench stops running.
 boolean preShutdown ( IWorkbench workbench, boolean forced)
          Notifies that the workbench is about to shut down.

Method Detail


boolean preShutdown(
IWorkbench workbench,
                    boolean forced)
Notifies that the workbench is about to shut down.

This method is called immediately prior to workbench shutdown before any windows have been closed.

The listener may veto a regular shutdown by returning false, although this will be ignored if the workbench is being forced to shut down.

Since other workbench listeners may veto the shutdown, the listener should not dispose resources or do any other work during this notification that would leave the workbench in an inconsistent state.

workbench - the workbench
forced - true if the workbench is being forced to shutdown, false for a regular close
true to allow the workbench to proceed with shutdown, false to veto a non-forced shutdown


void postShutdown(
IWorkbench workbench)
Performs arbitrary finalization after the workbench stops running.

This method is called during workbench shutdown after all windows have been closed.
