Interface IProgressMonitorWithBlocking

  • All Superinterfaces:
    IProgressMonitor
    All Known Implementing Classes:
    ProgressMonitorPart, ProgressMonitorWrapper, SubMonitor, SubProgressMonitor

    public interface IProgressMonitorWithBlocking
    extends IProgressMonitor
    An extension to the IProgressMonitor interface for monitors that want to support feedback when an activity is blocked due to concurrent activity in another thread.

    When a monitor that supports this extension is passed to an operation, the operation should call setBlocked whenever it knows that it must wait for a lock that is currently held by another thread. The operation should continue to check for and respond to cancelation requests while blocked. When the operation is no longer blocked, it must call clearBlocked to clear the blocked state.

    This interface can be used without OSGi running.

    Clients may implement this interface.

    • Method Detail

      • setBlocked

        void setBlocked​(IStatus reason)
        Indicates that this operation is blocked by some background activity. If a running operation ever calls setBlocked, it must eventually call clearBlocked before the operation completes.

        If the caller is blocked by a currently executing job, this method will return an IJobStatus indicating the job that is currently blocking the caller. If this blocking job is not known, this method will return a plain informational IStatus object.

        Parameters:
        reason - an optional status object whose message describes the reason why this operation is blocked, or null if this information is not available.

        void clearBlocked()
        Clears the blocked state of the running operation. If a running operation ever calls setBlocked, it must eventually call clearBlocked before the operation completes.
