public interface IContentOutlinePage
Marker-style interface for a content outline page. This interface defines
the minimum requirement for pages within the content outline view, namely
they must be pages (implement
IPage) and provide selections
Access to a content outline page begins when an editor is activated. When
activation occurs, the content outline view will ask the editor for its
content outline page. This is done by invoking
getAdapter(IContentOutlinePage.class) on the editor.
If the editor returns a page, the view then creates the controls for that
createControl) and makes the page visible.
Clients may implement this interface from scratch, or subclass the
abstract base class
Note that this interface extends
This is no longer required in the case of implementors who also
IPageBookViewPage (or extend
as they are now passed an
IPageSite during their initialization
and this site can be configured with a selection provider.
However to avoid a breaking change
1) this interface will continue to extend ISelectionProvider
2) if an IContentOutlinePage does not set a selection provider for its
site, the ContentOutline will continue to use the page itself for
