Interface ILocalVariable

  • All Superinterfaces:
    IAdaptable, IAnnotatable, IJavaElement, ISourceReference

    public interface ILocalVariable
    extends IJavaElement, ISourceReference, IAnnotatable
    Represents a local variable declared in a method or an initializer. ILocalVariable are pseudo-elements created as the result of a ICodeAssist.codeSelect(...) operation. They are not part of the Java model (exists() returns whether the parent exists rather than whether the local variable exists in the parent) and they are not included in the children of an IMethod or an IInitializer.

    In particular such a pseudo-element should not be used as a handle. For example its name range won't be updated if the underlying source changes.

    Since:
    3.0
    Restriction:
    This interface is not intended to be implemented by clients.

      • getElementName

        String getElementName()
        Returns the name of this local variable.
        Specified by:
        getElementName in interface IJavaElement
        Returns:
        the name of this local variable.
      • getNameRange

        ISourceRange getNameRange()
        Returns the source range of this local variable's name.
        Specified by:
        getNameRange in interface ISourceReference
        Returns:
        the source range of this local variable's name
      • getTypeSignature

        String getTypeSignature()
        Returns the type signature of this local variable.

        The type signature may be either unresolved (for source types) or resolved (for binary types), and either basic (for basic types) or rich (for parameterized types). See Signature for details.

        Returns:
        the type signature of this local variable.

      • isParameter

        boolean isParameter()
        Returns true if this local variable is a method parameter, false otherwise.
        Returns:
        true if this local variable is a method parameter, false otherwise

        int getFlags()
        Returns the modifier flags for this local variable. The flags can be examined using class Flags.

        Note that only flags as indicated in the source are returned.

        Returns:
        the modifier flags for this local variable

      • getDeclaringMember

        IMember getDeclaringMember()
        Returns the declaring member of this local variable.

        This is a handle-only method.

        Returns:
        the declaring member of this local variable
        Since:

      • getTypeRoot

        ITypeRoot getTypeRoot()
        Returns the Java type root in which this local variable is declared.

        This is a handle-only method.

        Returns:
        the Java type root in which this local variable is declared
