Eclipse Platform
Release 3.5

Package org.eclipse.ui.navigator

Provides the Common Navigator framework.


Interface Summary
ICommonActionConstants Defines constants for the retargetable actions available in the Common Viewer context menu.
ICommonActionExtensionSite Provides access to information required for the initialization of CommonActionProviders.
ICommonContentExtensionSite Provides initialization data for a content extension.
ICommonContentProvider Allows extensions to vary their behavior based on properties in the extension model and the given memento.
ICommonFilterDescriptor Provides information about a commonFilter extension.
ICommonLabelProvider Allows extensions to vary their behavior based on properties in the extension model and the given memento.
ICommonMenuConstants Defines strings used for menu insertion points.
ICommonViewerMapper Allows improved performance by optimizing label updates of the CommonViewer.
ICommonViewerSite Provides context for extensions including a valid shell, a selection provider, and a unique identifier corresponding to the abstract viewer behind the viewer site.
ICommonViewerWorkbenchSite Provides a page, set of action bars, menu registration callback, and active window.
IDescriptionProvider Label providers (as specified by the labelProvider attribute of the org.eclipse.ui.navigator.navigatorContent extension point) may choose to also implement this interface in order to provide text for the status bar at the bottom of the Eclipse window.
IExtensionActivationListener An extension activation listener is notified whenever the activation state changes for one or more content extensions.
IExtensionStateModel Allows clients to coordinate state across components that are part of the same logical extension.
ILinkHelper Provides information to the Common Navigator on how to link selections with active editors and vice versa.
IMementoAware Clients may use mementos to persist interesting state between sessions.
INavigatorActivationService Determines if an extension is active within the context of a given viewer and manages the persistence of this information.
INavigatorContentDescriptor The descriptor provides a the low-level handle to a content extension.
INavigatorContentExtension The content extension represents the components of a navigatorContent extension.
INavigatorContentService Manages content extensions for extensible viewers and provides reusable services for filters, sorting, the activation of content extensions, and DND.
INavigatorContentServiceListener Used by clients who would like to listen for the load event of am INavigatorContentExtension.
INavigatorDnDService Provides instances of CommonDragAdapterAssistant and CommonDropAdapterAssistant for the associated INavigatorContentService.
INavigatorFilterService Provides support for managing the filters defined for a Common Navigator viewer.
INavigatorPipelineService Performs calculations that are necessary to determine the correct children to render in the viewer.
INavigatorSorterService Provides an interface to extensions declared in org.eclipse.ui.navigator.navigatorContent/commonSorter.
INavigatorViewerDescriptor Provides a basic metadata about the abstract viewer for a particular content service.
IPipelinedTreeContentProvider A pipelined content provider allows an extension to reshape the contributions of an upstream content extension.

Class Summary
CommonActionProvider Provides actions from extensions for menu and IActionBars contributions.
CommonDragAdapter Provides an implementation of DragSourceAdapter which uses the extensions provided by the associated INavigatorContentService.
CommonDragAdapterAssistant Assist the CommonDragAdapter by providing new TransferTypes and the logic to handle setting up the transfer data.
CommonDropAdapter Provides an implementation of PluginDropAdapter which uses the extensions provided by the associated INavigatorContentService.
CommonDropAdapterAssistant Used by the org.eclipse.ui.navigator.navigatorContent/navigatorContent/commonDropAdapter extension point to carry out pluggable drop operations.
CommonNavigator This class provides the IViewPart for the Common Navigator framework in the Eclipse workbench.
CommonNavigatorManager Manages the non-viewer responsibilities of the Common Navigator View Part, including the display and population of the context menu and the registration of extensions for opening content.
CommonViewer Provides the Tree Viewer for the Common Navigator.
CommonViewerSiteFactory Allows clients to create ICommonViewerSite for a variety of contexts.
CommonViewerSorter Provides an implementation of TreeViewerSorter that uses the given parent to determine the correct sort order based on the defined org.eclipse.ui.navigator.navigatorContent/navigatorContent/commonSorter elements available in the set of visible content extensions.
LinkHelperService Manages the link helpers which are used to define the behavior of the link with editor function.
MenuInsertionPoint A descriptive construct to relay information about a menu insertion point; including the name of the insertion point and whether the item should be rendered as a separator or group marker.
NavigatorActionService Provides context menu items and IActionBars contributions for a particular abstract viewer.
NavigatorContentServiceFactory Provides a factory pattern for creating INavigatorContentServices for given viewer ids.
OverridePolicy Enumeration of the OverridePolicy values supported by the Common Navigator.
PipelinedShapeModification Indicates how a shape modification should be transformed when applied to the tree.
PipelinedViewerUpdate A pipelined viewer update should map requests to refresh or update elements in the viewer to their correct, modified structure.
Priority Enumeration of the Priority values supported by the Common Navigator.
SaveablesProvider Provides Saveable objects to the common navigator, and allows to map between elements in the tree and models.
WizardActionGroup Populates context menus with shortcut actions for defined wizards.

Package org.eclipse.ui.navigator Description

Provides the Common Navigator framework. Services allow clients to contribute reusable content/label providers and define viewers that use the available content/label providers.
