The definition of a reference provider for the quick diff display.


  • class - the class of the reference provider, which must implement org.eclipse.ui.texteditor.quickdiff.IQuickDiffReferenceProvider
  • label - the display label for the provider, which will show up in the menu that allows the user to set the quick diff reference to this provider
  • id - A string uniquely identifying this reference provider.
  • Deprecated default - if this flag is set to true, this reference provider will be installed per default the first time quick diff is enabled for a document. If multiple providers are installed with the flag set are encountered, the first one is taken.

Examples:
The following is an example of a reference provider definition. It contributes a provider that uses the version of a document saved on disk as a reference.


 <extension point=
"quickdiff.referenceprovider"
>
  <referenceprovider
   id=
"default"

   name=
"%LastSavedProvider.name"

   label=
"%quickdiff.referenceprovider.label"

   class=
"org.eclipse.ui.internal.editors.quickdiff.providers.LastSaveReferenceProvider"
>
  </referenceprovider>
 </extension>

Supplied Implementation:
The org.eclipse.ui.editors plugin contributes LastSaveReferenceProvider. See its implementation as an example.
