Class Tree

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    Drawable

    public class Tree
    extends Composite
    Instances of this class provide a selectable user interface object that displays a hierarchy of items and issues notification when an item in the hierarchy is selected.

    The item children that may be added to instances of this class must be of type TreeItem.

    Style VIRTUAL is used to create a Tree whose TreeItems are to be populated by the client on an on-demand basis instead of up-front. This can provide significant performance improvements for trees that are very large or for which TreeItem population is expensive (for example, retrieving values from an external source).

    Here is an example of using a Tree with style VIRTUAL:

    
      final Tree tree = new Tree(parent, SWT.VIRTUAL | SWT.BORDER);
      tree.setItemCount(20);
      tree.addListener(SWT.SetData, new Listener() {
          public void handleEvent(Event event) {
              TreeItem item = (TreeItem)event.item;
              TreeItem parentItem = item.getParentItem();
              String text = null;
              if (parentItem == null) {
                  text = "node " + tree.indexOf(item);
              } else {
                  text = parentItem.getText() + " - " + parentItem.indexOf(item);
              }
              item.setText(text);
              System.out.println(text);
              item.setItemCount(10);
          }
      });
     

    Note that although this class is a subclass of Composite, it does not normally make sense to add Control children to it, or set a layout on it, unless implementing something like a cell editor.

    Styles:
    SINGLE, MULTI, CHECK, FULL_SELECTION, VIRTUAL, NO_SCROLL
    Events:
    Selection, DefaultSelection, Collapse, Expand, SetData, MeasureItem, EraseItem, PaintItem

    Note: Only one of the styles SINGLE and MULTI may be specified.

    IMPORTANT: This class is not intended to be subclassed.

    • Constructor Detail

      • Tree

        public Tree​(Composite parent,
                    int style)
        Constructs a new instance of this class given its parent and a style value describing its behavior and appearance.

        The style value is either one of the style constants defined in class SWT which is applicable to instances of this class, or must be built by bitwise OR'ing together (that is, using the int "|" operator) two or more of those SWT style constants. The class description lists the style constants that are applicable to the class. Style bits are also inherited from superclasses.

        Parameters:
        parent - a composite control which will be the parent of the new instance (cannot be null)
        style - the style of control to construct
        Throws:
        IllegalArgumentException -
        • ERROR_NULL_ARGUMENT - if the parent is null
        SWTException -
        • ERROR_THREAD_INVALID_ACCESS - if not called from the thread that created the parent
        • ERROR_INVALID_SUBCLASS - if this class is not an allowed subclass

    • Method Detail

      • addSelectionListener

        public void addSelectionListener​(SelectionListener listener)
        Adds the listener to the collection of listeners who will be notified when the user changes the receiver's selection, by sending it one of the messages defined in the SelectionListener interface.

        When widgetSelected is called, the item field of the event object is valid. If the receiver has the SWT.CHECK style and the check selection changes, the event object detail field contains the value SWT.CHECK. widgetDefaultSelected is typically called when an item is double-clicked. The item field of the event object is valid for default selection, but the detail field is not used.

        Parameters:
        listener - the listener which should be notified when the user changes the receiver's selection
        Throws:
        IllegalArgumentException -
        • ERROR_NULL_ARGUMENT - if the listener is null
        SWTException -
        • ERROR_WIDGET_DISPOSED - if the receiver has been disposed
        • ERROR_THREAD_INVALID_ACCESS - if not called from the thread that created the receiver

        SelectionListener, removeSelectionListener(org.eclipse.swt.events.SelectionListener), SelectionEvent
      • addTreeListener

        public void addTreeListener​(TreeListener listener)
        Adds the listener to the collection of listeners who will be notified when an item in the receiver is expanded or collapsed by sending it one of the messages defined in the TreeListener interface.
        Parameters:
        listener - the listener which should be notified
        Throws:
        IllegalArgumentException -
        • ERROR_NULL_ARGUMENT - if the listener is null
        SWTException -
        • ERROR_WIDGET_DISPOSED - if the receiver has been disposed
        • ERROR_THREAD_INVALID_ACCESS - if not called from the thread that created the receiver

      • checkSubclass

        protected void checkSubclass()
        Description copied from class: Widget
        Checks that this class can be subclassed.

        The SWT class library is intended to be subclassed only at specific, controlled points (most notably, Composite and Canvas when implementing new widgets). This method enforces this rule unless it is overridden.

        IMPORTANT: By providing an implementation of this method that allows a subclass of a class which does not normally allow subclassing to be created, the implementer agrees to be fully responsible for the fact that any such subclass will likely fail between SWT releases and will be strongly platform specific. No support is provided for user-written classes which are implemented in this fashion.

        The ability to subclass outside of the allowed SWT classes is intended purely to enable those not on the SWT development team to implement patches in order to get around specific limitations in advance of when those limitations can be addressed by the team. Subclassing should not be attempted without an intimate and detailed understanding of the hierarchy.

        public TreeColumn getColumn​(int index)
        Returns the column at the given, zero-relative index in the receiver. Throws an exception if the index is out of range. Columns are returned in the order that they were created. If no TreeColumns were created by the programmer, this method will throw ERROR_INVALID_RANGE despite the fact that a single column of data may be visible in the tree. This occurs when the programmer uses the tree like a list, adding items but never creating a column.
        Parameters:
        index - the index of the column to return

      • getColumnCount

        public int getColumnCount()
        Returns the number of columns contained in the receiver. If no TreeColumns were created by the programmer, this value is zero, despite the fact that visually, one column of items may be visible. This occurs when the programmer uses the tree like a list, adding items but never creating a column.
        Returns:
        the number of columns

      • getColumnOrder

        public int[] getColumnOrder()
        Returns an array of zero-relative integers that map the creation order of the receiver's items to the order in which they are currently being displayed.

        Specifically, the indices of the returned array represent the current visual order of the items, and the contents of the array represent the creation order of the items.

        Note: This is not the actual structure used by the receiver to maintain its list of items, so modifying the array will not affect the receiver.

        Returns:
        the current visual order of the receiver's items
        Throws:
        SWTException -
        • ERROR_WIDGET_DISPOSED - if the receiver has been disposed

      • getColumns

        public TreeColumn[] getColumns()
        Returns an array of TreeColumns which are the columns in the receiver. Columns are returned in the order that they were created. If no TreeColumns were created by the programmer, the array is empty, despite the fact that visually, one column of items may be visible. This occurs when the programmer uses the tree like a list, adding items but never creating a column.

        Note: This is not the actual structure used by the receiver to maintain its list of items, so modifying the array will not affect the receiver.

        Returns:
        the items in the receiver

        public TreeItem getItem​(int index)
        Returns the item at the given, zero-relative index in the receiver. Throws an exception if the index is out of range.
        Parameters:
        index - the index of the item to return
        Returns:
        the item at the given index

      • getItem

        public TreeItem getItem​(Point point)
        Returns the item at the given point in the receiver or null if no such item exists. The point is in the coordinate system of the receiver.

        The item that is returned represents an item that could be selected by the user. For example, if selection only occurs in items in the first column, then null is returned if the point is outside of the item. Note that the SWT.FULL_SELECTION style hint, which specifies the selection policy, determines the extent of the selection.

        Parameters:
        point - the point used to locate the item
        Returns:
        the item at the given point, or null if the point is not in a selectable item

      • getItemCount

        public int getItemCount()
        Returns the number of items contained in the receiver that are direct item children of the receiver. The number that is returned is the number of roots in the tree.
        Returns:
        the number of items
        Throws:
        SWTException -
        • ERROR_WIDGET_DISPOSED - if the receiver has been disposed
        • ERROR_THREAD_INVALID_ACCESS - if not called from the thread that created the receiver
      • getItemHeight

        public int getItemHeight()
        Returns the height of the area which would be used to display one of the items in the tree.
        Returns:
        the height of one item
        Throws:
        SWTException -
        • ERROR_WIDGET_DISPOSED - if the receiver has been disposed
        • ERROR_THREAD_INVALID_ACCESS - if not called from the thread that created the receiver
      • getItems

        public TreeItem[] getItems()
        Returns a (possibly empty) array of items contained in the receiver that are direct item children of the receiver. These are the roots of the tree.

        Note: This is not the actual structure used by the receiver to maintain its list of items, so modifying the array will not affect the receiver.

        Returns:
        the items
        Throws:

      • getLinesVisible

        public boolean getLinesVisible()
        Returns true if the receiver's lines are visible, and false otherwise. Note that some platforms draw grid lines while others may draw alternating row colors.

        If one of the receiver's ancestors is not visible or some other condition makes the receiver not visible, this method may still indicate that it is considered visible even though it may not actually be showing.

        Returns:
        the visibility state of the lines
        Throws:
        SWTException -
        • ERROR_WIDGET_DISPOSED - if the receiver has been disposed

      • getParentItem

        public TreeItem getParentItem()
        Returns the receiver's parent item, which must be a TreeItem or null when the receiver is a root.
        Returns:
        the receiver's parent item
        Throws:
        SWTException -
        • ERROR_WIDGET_DISPOSED - if the receiver has been disposed

      • getSelection

        public TreeItem[] getSelection()
        Returns an array of TreeItems that are currently selected in the receiver. The order of the items is unspecified. An empty array indicates that no items are selected.

        Note: This is not the actual structure used by the receiver to maintain its selection, so modifying the array will not affect the receiver.

        Returns:
        an array representing the selection
        Throws:
