Interface IWorkspaceDescription


  • public interface IWorkspaceDescription
    A workspace description represents the workspace preferences. It can be used to query the current preferences and set new ones. The workspace preference values are stored in the preference store and are also accessible via the preference mechanism. Constants for the preference keys are found on the ResourcesPlugin class.
