Class DeferredTreeContentManager


  • public class DeferredTreeContentManager
    extends Object
    The DeferredContentManager is a class that helps an ITreeContentProvider get its deferred input. NOTE AbstractTreeViewer#isExpandable may need to be implemented in AbstractTreeViewer subclasses with deferred content that use filtering as a call to #getChildren may be required to determine the correct state of the expanding control. AbstractTreeViewers which use this class may wish to sacrifice accuracy of the expandable state indicator for the performance benefits of deferring content.

      • mayHaveChildren

        public boolean mayHaveChildren​(Object element)
        Provides an optimized lookup for determining if an element has children. This is required because elements that are populated lazilly can't answer getChildren just to determine the potential for children. Throw an AssertionFailedException if element is null.
        Parameters:
        element - The Object being tested. This should not be null.
        Returns:
        boolean true if there are potentially children.
        Throws:
        RuntimeException - if the element is null.
      • getChildren

        public Object[] getChildren​(Object parent)
        Returns the child elements of the given element, or in the case of a deferred element, returns a placeholder. If a deferred element is used, a job is created to fetch the children in the background.
        Parameters:
        parent - The parent object.
        Returns:
        Object[] or null if parent is not an instance of IDeferredWorkbenchAdapter.
      • createPendingUpdateAdapter

        protected PendingUpdateAdapter createPendingUpdateAdapter()
        Factory method for creating the pending update adapter representing the placeholder node. Subclasses may override.
        Returns:
        a pending update adapter
        Since:
        3.2
      • getAdapter

        protected IDeferredWorkbenchAdapter getAdapter​(Object element)
        Return the IDeferredWorkbenchAdapter for element or the element if it is an instance of IDeferredWorkbenchAdapter. If it does not exist return null.
        Parameters:
        element -
        Returns:
        IDeferredWorkbenchAdapter or null
      • startFetchingDeferredChildren

        protected void startFetchingDeferredChildren​(Object parent,
                                                     IDeferredWorkbenchAdapter adapter,
                                                     PendingUpdateAdapter placeholder)
        Starts a job and creates a collector for fetching the children of this deferred adapter. If children are waiting to be retrieved for this parent already, that job is cancelled and another is started.
        Parameters:
        parent - The parent object being filled in,
        adapter - The adapter being used to fetch the children.
        placeholder - The adapter that will be used to indicate that results are pending.

                                         IDeferredWorkbenchAdapter adapter)
        Returns a name to use for the job that fetches children of the given parent. Subclasses may override. Default job name is parent's label.
        Parameters:
        parent - parent that children are to be fetched for
        adapter - parent's deferred adapter
        Returns:
        job name

      • addUpdateCompleteListener

        public void addUpdateCompleteListener​(IJobChangeListener listener)
        Add a listener to list of update complete listeners. These listeners are attached to the job that updates the viewer content (clears the pending entry, etc.) after all deferred content has been retrieved. This method has no effect if the listener has already been added to the list of listeners. Since 3.6, this listener is added to a list of listeners rather than replacing the previously added listener. For backward compatibility, adding a null listener will be interpreted as removal of a listener if only one listener has been registered.
        Parameters:
        listener - the listener to add to the list of update listeners
        Since:
        3.4
      • removeUpdateCompleteListener

        public void removeUpdateCompleteListener​(IJobChangeListener listener)
        Removes the listener from the list of update listeners that are attached to the job that updates the viewer content (clears the pending entry, etc.) after all deferred content has been retrieved. If the listener is already attached to a running job, it is not removed, but it will not be added to any subsequent jobs that are run. This method has no effect if the listener was not previously added to the listener list.
        Parameters:
        listener - the listener to be removed
        Since:
        3.6
