    public abstract class MultiPageEditorPart
    extends EditorPart
    implements IPageChangeProvider
    A multi-page editor is an editor with multiple pages, each of which may contain an editor or an arbitrary SWT control.

    Subclasses must implement the following methods:

    • createPages - to create the required pages by calling one of the addPage methods
    • IEditorPart.doSave - to save contents of editor
    • IEditorPart.doSaveAs - to save contents of editor
    • IEditorPart.isSaveAsAllowed - to enable Save As
    • IEditorPart.gotoMarker - to scroll to a marker

    Multi-page editors have a single action bar contributor, which manages contributions for all the pages. The contributor must be a subclass of MultiPageEditorActionBarContributor. Note that since any nested editors are created directly in code by callers of addPage(IEditorPart,IEditorInput), nested editors do not have their own contributors.

    As of 3.5 multi-page editors will post PageChangedEvents at the end of pageChange(int). Subclasses may override getSelectedPage() to return a page appropriate to their multi-page editor. IPartListener2 listeners registered with the IPartService can implement IPageChangedListener to be notified about all page change events within the workbench page or workbench window.

        3.2
      • createSite

        protected IEditorSite createSite​(IEditorPart editor)
        Creates the site for the given nested editor. The MultiPageEditorPart implementation of this method creates an instance of MultiPageEditorSite. Subclasses may reimplement to create more specialized sites.
        Parameters:
        editor - the nested editor
        Returns:
        the editor site
      • dispose

        public void dispose()

        Restriction:
      • getContainer

        protected Composite getContainer()
        Returns the composite control containing this multi-page editor's pages. This should be used as the parent when creating controls for the individual pages. That is, when calling addPage(Control), the passed control should be a child of this container.

        Warning: Clients should not assume that the container is any particular subclass of Composite. The actual class used may change in order to improve the look and feel of multi-page editors. Any code making assumptions on the particular subclass would thus be broken.

        Subclasses should not override this method

        Returns:
        the composite, or null if createPartControl has not been called yet
      • getControl

        protected Control getControl​(int pageIndex)

        Parameters:
        pageIndex - the index of the page
        Returns:
        the editor for the specified page, or null if the specified page was not created with addPage(IEditorPart,IEditorInput)

      • handlePropertyChange

        protected void handlePropertyChange​(int propertyId)
        Handles a property change notification from a nested editor. The default implementation simply forwards the change to listeners on this multi-page editor by calling firePropertyChange with the same property id. For example, if the dirty state of a nested editor changes (property id IEditorPart.PROP_DIRTY), this method handles it by firing a property change event for IEditorPart.PROP_DIRTY to property listeners on this multi-page editor.

        Subclasses may extend or reimplement this method.

        Parameters:
        propertyId - the id of the property that changed
      • init

        public void init​(IEditorSite site,
                         IEditorInput input)
                  throws PartInitException
        The MultiPageEditorPart implementation of this IEditorPart method sets its site to the given site, its input to the given input, and the site's selection provider to a MultiPageSelectionProvider. Subclasses may extend this method.
        Specified by:
        init in interface IEditorPart
        Specified by:
        init in class EditorPart
        Parameters:
        site - The site for which this part is being created; must not be null.
        input - The input on which this editor should be created; must not be null.
        Throws:
        PartInitException - If the initialization of the part fails -- currently never.
      • isDirty

        public boolean isDirty()
        The MultiPageEditorPart implementation of this IEditorPart method returns whether the contents of any of this multi-page editor's nested editors have changed since the last save. Pages created with addPage(Control) are ignored.

        Subclasses may extend or reimplement this method.

        Specified by:
        isDirty in interface ISaveablePart
        Specified by:
        isDirty in class EditorPart
        Returns:
        true if any of the nested editors are dirty; false otherwise.
      • pageChange

        protected void pageChange​(int newPageIndex)
        Notifies this multi-page editor that the page with the given id has been activated. This method is called when the user selects a different tab.

        The MultiPageEditorPart implementation of this method sets focus to the new page, and notifies the action bar contributor (if there is one). This checks whether the action bar contributor is an instance of MultiPageEditorActionBarContributor, and, if so, calls setActivePage with the active nested editor. This also fires a selection change event if required.

        Subclasses may extend this method.

        Parameters:
        newPageIndex - the index of the activated page
      • deactivateSite

        protected final void deactivateSite​(boolean immediate,
                                            boolean containerSiteActive)
        This method can be used by implementors of createPageContainer(Composite) to deactivate the active inner editor services while their header has focus. A deactivateSite() must have a matching call to activateSite() when appropriate.

        An new inner editor will have its site activated on a pageChange(int).

        Note: This API is evolving in 3.4 and this might not be its final form.

        Parameters:
        immediate - immediately deactivate the legacy keybinding service
        containerSiteActive - Leave the page container site active.
