This interface is not intended to be implemented by clients.
Restriction:
This interface is not intended to be extended by clients.

Method Summary
 void bindDragAssistant ( CommonDragAdapterAssistant anAssistant)
          Clients may choose to programmatically bind drag assistants to an instance of the DND Service.
  CommonDropAdapterAssistant[] findCommonDropAdapterAssistants ( Object aDropTarget, IStructuredSelection theDragSelection)
          This method returns an array of CommonDropAdapterAssistant from content extensions that are visible and active for the associated INavigatorContentService.
  CommonDropAdapterAssistant[] findCommonDropAdapterAssistants ( Object aDropTarget, TransferData theTransferType)
          This method returns an array of CommonDropAdapterAssistant from content extensions that are visible and active for the associated INavigatorContentService.
  CommonDragAdapterAssistant[] getCommonDragAssistants ()
          As part of the org.eclipse.ui.navigator.viewer extension point, clients may explicit extend the support Transfer Types of a particular viewer using the dragAssistant element.
 

Method Detail

getCommonDragAssistants

CommonDragAdapterAssistant[] getCommonDragAssistants()
As part of the org.eclipse.ui.navigator.viewer extension point, clients may explicit extend the support Transfer Types of a particular viewer using the dragAssistant element. This element defines a class which extends CommonDragAdapterAssistant and can direct the viewer on how to provide different kinds of DND Transfer Types. The array is returned in no particular order.

Returns:
An array of CommonDragAdapterAssistant or an empty array.

bindDragAssistant

void bindDragAssistant(
CommonDragAdapterAssistant anAssistant)
Clients may choose to programmatically bind drag assistants to an instance of the DND Service. A programmatic binding is not persisted between sessions and is not propagated to other instances of INavigatorContentService with the same id.

Parameters:
anAssistant - The assistant to bind.

findCommonDropAdapterAssistants

CommonDropAdapterAssistant[] findCommonDropAdapterAssistants(
Object aDropTarget,
                                                             
TransferData theTransferType)
This method returns an array of CommonDropAdapterAssistant from content extensions that are visible and active for the associated INavigatorContentService. The array is sorted by priority, with overrides taken into account.

The array should be processed from the first element to the last, asking each extension to CommonDropAdapterAssistant.validateDrop(Object, int, org.eclipse.swt.dnd.TransferData). The first to successfully validate the drop operation will have the opportunity to handle the drop

Parameters:
aDropTarget - The target element in the viewer of the drop operation.
theTransferType - The transfer type of the current drop operation.
Returns:
An array of CommonDropAdapterAssistants that are defined by the set of org.eclipse.ui.navigator.navigatorContent/navigatorContent extensions that provide a possibleChildren expression that matches the given drop target.

findCommonDropAdapterAssistants

CommonDropAdapterAssistant[] findCommonDropAdapterAssistants(
Object aDropTarget,
                                                             
IStructuredSelection theDragSelection)
This method returns an array of CommonDropAdapterAssistant from content extensions that are visible and active for the associated INavigatorContentService.

The array should be processed from the first element to the last, asking each extension to CommonDropAdapterAssistant.validateDrop(Object, int, org.eclipse.swt.dnd.TransferData). The first to successfully validate the drop operation will have the opportunity to handle the drop

Parameters:
aDropTarget - The target element in the viewer of the drop operation.
theDragSelection - The drag selection of the current drop operation.
Returns:
An array of CommonDropAdapterAssistants that are defined by the set of org.eclipse.ui.navigator.navigatorContent/navigatorContent extensions that provide a possibleChildren expression that matches the given drop target.
