         ActionFactory.IWorkbenchAction previousEditorAction = ActionFactory.PREVIOUS_EDITOR.create(window);

      • create

        public abstract ActionFactory.IWorkbenchAction create​(IWorkbenchWindow window)
        Creates a new standard action for the given workbench window. The action has an id as specified by the particular factory.

        Actions automatically register listeners against the workbench window so that they can keep their enablement state up to date. Ordinarily, the window's references to these listeners will be dropped automatically when the window closes. However, if the client needs to get rid of an action while the window is still open, the client must call disposeto give the action an opportunity to deregister its listeners and to perform any other cleanup.

        Parameters:
        window - the workbench window
        Returns:
        the workbench action
      • getId

        public String getId()
