  • tab - The tab in which this section appears.
  • id - The unique id for the section.
  • class - The class that implements the section, i.e. extends org.eclipse.ui.views.properties.tabbed.AbstractPropertySection
  • afterSection - When there is more than one section in a tab, sections are sorted by the afterSection attribute.
  • filter - The class that implements a section filter, i.e. implements org.eclipse.jface.viewers.IFilter. A filter is used to override the type mapper and input for the selection. When a filter is specified, type mapper and input are ignored.
  • enablesFor - a value indicating the selection count which must be met to enable the section. If specified and the condition is not met, the section is not displayed. If omitted, the section enablement is not affected. The following attribute formats are currently supported:
    n - a precise number of items selected.  For example: enablesFor=" 1" enables the section only when 1 item is selected

<!ELEMENT input EMPTY>

<!ATTLIST input

type CDATA #REQUIRED

>

  • type - The selected class or interface that will enable the display on the section in the tab.
