Interface MouseTrackListener

  • All Superinterfaces:
    EventListener, SWTEventListener
    All Known Implementing Classes:
    AnnotationBarHoverManager.Closer, HyperlinkManager, MouseTrackAdapter, TextConsoleViewer

    public interface MouseTrackListener
    extends SWTEventListener
    Classes which implement this interface provide methods that deal with the events that are generated as the mouse pointer passes (or hovers) over controls.

    After creating an instance of a class that implements this interface it can be added to a control using the addMouseTrackListener method and removed using the removeMouseTrackListener method. When the mouse pointer passes into or out of the area of the screen covered by a control or pauses while over a control, the appropriate method will be invoked.
