StackPresentations

Identifier:
org.eclipse.rap.ui.stackPresentations

Since:
RAP 1.2

Description:
This extension point is used to register ConfigurableStacks. This object extending a ordinary StackPresentation so it can be used to style a LayoutPart. To register such a ConfigurableStack only makes sence if the PresentationFactory is a org.eclipse.rap.presentation.PresentationFactory. Because only this PresentationFactory can handle a ConfigurableStack.
This extension point is also used to couple a ConfigurationAction to such a ConfigurableStack. With this you can implement different configuration behaviours for different ConfigurableStack implementations.
You can define default StackPresentations for a part using the org.eclipse.rap.ui.branding extension point.

Configuration Markup:

<!ELEMENT extension ( stackPresentation+)+>

<!ATTLIST extension

point CDATA #REQUIRED

id    CDATA #IMPLIED

name  CDATA #IMPLIED>


<!ELEMENT stackPresentation EMPTY>

<!ATTLIST stackPresentation

id          CDATA #REQUIRED

class       CDATA #REQUIRED

name        CDATA #REQUIRED

type        (editor|view|standaloneview)

actionClass CDATA #IMPLIED

actionIcon  CDATA #IMPLIED

menuIcon    CDATA #IMPLIED>

  • id - The identifier for the ConfigurableStack. This is for load and save such a part presentation.
  • class - An implementation of ConfigurableStack
  • name - The name of ConfigurableStack, this is just to give it a readable name.
  • type - This defines the type where the ConfigurableStack can be used. there are three possible types: Editor, View and StandaloneView.
  • actionClass - An implementation of ConfigurationAction. With this action you can implement configuration bahaviour e.g. this action can create a popup dialog that shows configuration elements.
  • actionIcon - The icon for the ConfigurationAction.
  • menuIcon - The icon for a view's menu if it has one.

Examples:

<extension
         point=
"org.eclipse.ui.presentations.StackPresentations"
>
      <stackPresentation
            actionClass=
"org.eclipse.rap.ui.interactiondesign.example.configaction.ExampleConfigAction"

            actionIcon=
"icons/configure.png"

            class=
"org.eclipse.rap.ui.interactiondesign.example.stacks.NavigationPaneStackPresentation"

            id=
"org.eclipse.rap.ui.interactiondesign.navigationPaneStackPresentation"

            menuIcon=
"icons/menuIcon.gif"

            name=
"Navigation Pane"

            type=
"view"
>
      </stackPresentation>
</extension>      

API Information:
Each stackPresentation has to extend org.eclipse.rap.ui.interactiondesign.ConfigurableStack to handle different mechanisms, e.g. stackPresentation changing on the fly and so on.

Supplied Implementation:
A detailed implementation example can be found in the org.eclipse.rap.presentation.example project. This project defines two different ConfigurableStack implementations.
