Interface ITreePathContentProvider

    • Method Detail

      • getElements

        Object[] getElements​(Object inputElement)
        Returns the elements to display in the viewer when its input is set to the given element. These elements can be presented as rows in a table, items in a list, etc. The result is not modified by the viewer.

        NOTE: The returned array must not contain the given inputElement, since this leads to recursion issues in AbstractTreeViewer (see bug 9262).

        Specified by:
        getElements in interface IStructuredContentProvider
        Parameters:
        inputElement - the input element
        Returns:
        the array of elements to display in the viewer
      • getChildren

        Object[] getChildren​(TreePath parentPath)
        Returns the child elements of the last element in the given path. Implementors may want to use the additional context of the complete path of a parent element in order to decide which children to return.

        The provided path is relative to the input. The root elements must be obtained by calling IStructuredContentProvider.getElements(Object).

        The result is not modified by the viewer.
        Parameters:
        parentPath - the path of the parent element
        Returns:
        an array of child elements
      • hasChildren

        boolean hasChildren​(TreePath path)
        Returns whether the last element of the given path has children.

        Intended as an optimization for when the viewer does not need the actual children. Clients may be able to implement this more efficiently than getChildren.

        Parameters:
        path - the path
        Returns:
        true if the lat element of the path has children, and false if it has no children
      • getParents

        TreePath[] getParents​(Object element)
        Return the possible parent paths for the given element. An empty array can be returned if the paths cannot be computed. If the element is a potential child of the input of the viewer, an empty tree path should be an entry in the returned array.
        Parameters:
        element - the element
        Returns:
        the possible parent paths for the given element
