Result Sorters

This extension point is deprecated

Identifier:
org.eclipse.search.searchResultSorters

Description:
This extension point allows a plug-in to contribute search result sorters to the (old) search result view's Sort context menu. This extension point is deprecated since 3.0. The search result views are now contributed by clients and sorters are directly managed by these pages.

Configuration Markup:

<!ELEMENT extension ( sorter*)>

<!ATTLIST extension

point CDATA #REQUIRED

id    CDATA #IMPLIED

name  CDATA #IMPLIED

>

  • point - a fully qualified identifier of the target extension point
  • id - an optional identifier of the extension instance
  • name - an optional name of the extension instance

<!ELEMENT sorter EMPTY>

<!ATTLIST sorter

id      CDATA #REQUIRED

pageId  IDREF #REQUIRED

label   CDATA #REQUIRED

tooltip CDATA #IMPLIED

icon    CDATA #IMPLIED

class   CDATA #REQUIRED

>

  • id - a unique name that will be used to identify this search result sorter.
  • pageId - the ID of a registered search page for which the sorter will be activated. "*" activates the sorter for all pages.
  • label - a translatable label that will be used as the menu item's label.
  • tooltip - a translatable text that will be used as the menu item's tool tip . If omitted, the menu item will have no tool tip.
  • icon - a relative name of the image that will be shown in the context menu along with the label. If omitted, the menu entry will only contain a label.
  • class - a name of the class that extends org.eclipse.jface.viewers.ViewerSorter

Examples:
The following is an example of a search page extension definition:


   <extension point=
"org.eclipse.search.searchResultSorters"
> 
    <sorter 
        id=
"org.eclipse.search.internal.ui.FileNameSorter"
 
        pageId=
"*"
 
        label=
"%FileNameSorter.label"
 
        tooltip=
"%FilenNameSorter.tooltip"
 
        icon=
"icons/full/ecl16/search_sort.gif"
 
        class=
"org.eclipse.search.internal.ui.FileNameSorter"
> 
    </sorter> 
   </extension> 

Supplied Implementation:
The search infrastructure provides a sorter that sorts the matches by the resource name.
