- Functional Interface:
- This is a functional interface and can therefore be used as the assignment target for a lambda expression or method reference.
@FunctionalInterface public interface IHyperlinkDetectorA hyperlink detector tries to find a hyperlink at a given location in a given text viewer.
In order to provide backward compatibility for clients of
IHyperlinkDetector, extension interfaces are used to provide a means of evolution. The following extension interfaces exist:
IHyperlinkDetectorExtensionsince version 3.3, adds the ability to dispose a hyperlink detector
IHyperlinkDetectorExtension2since version 3.3, adds the ability to specify the state mask of the modifier keys that need to be pressed for this hyperlink detector
Clients may implement this interface.
IHyperlink detectHyperlinks(ITextViewer textViewer, IRegion region, boolean canShowMultipleHyperlinks)Tries to detect hyperlinks for the given region in the given text viewer and returns them.
In most of the cases only one hyperlink should be returned.
textViewer- the text viewer on which the hover popup should be shown
region- the text range in the text viewer which is used to detect the hyperlinks
canShowMultipleHyperlinks- tells whether the caller is able to show multiple links to the user. If
IHyperlink.open()should directly open the link and not show any additional UI to select from a list. If
falsethis method should only return one hyperlink which upon
IHyperlink.open()may allow to select from a list.
- the hyperlinks or
nullif no hyperlink was detected
