Class ResourceSorter


  • @Deprecated
    public class ResourceSorter
    extends ViewerSorter
    Deprecated.
    as of 3.3, use ResourceComparator instead
    Sorter for viewers that display items of type IResource. The sorter supports two sort criteria:

    NAME: Folders are given order precedence, followed by files. Within these two groups resources are ordered by name. All name comparisons are case-insensitive.

    TYPE: Folders are given order precedence, followed by files. Within these two groups resources are ordered by extension. All extension comparisons are case-insensitive.

    This class may be instantiated; it is not intended to be subclassed.

    Restriction:
    This class is not intended to be subclassed by clients.

    • Method Detail

      • classComparison

        protected int classComparison​(Object element)
        Deprecated.
        Returns an integer value representing the relative sort priority of the given element based on its class.
        • resources (IResource) - 2
        • project references (ProjectReference) - 1
        • everything else - 0
        Parameters:
        element - the element
        Returns:
        the sort priority (larger numbers means more important)
      • compare

        public int compare​(Viewer viewer,
                           Object o1,
                           Object o2)
        Deprecated.
        Description copied from class: ViewerComparator
        Returns a negative, zero, or positive number depending on whether the first element is less than, equal to, or greater than the second element.

        The default implementation of this method is based on comparing the elements' categories as computed by the category framework method. Elements within the same category are further subjected to a case insensitive compare of their label strings, either as computed by the content viewer's label provider, or their toString values in other cases. Subclasses may override.

        Overrides:
        compare in class ViewerComparator
        Parameters:
        viewer - the viewer
        o1 - the first element
        o2 - the second element
        Returns:
        a negative number if the first element is less than the second element; the value 0 if the first element is equal to the second element; and a positive number if the first element is greater than the second element
      • compareClass

        protected int compareClass​(Object element1,
                                   Object element2)
        Deprecated.
        Returns a number reflecting the collation order of the given elements based on their class.
        Parameters:
        element1 - the first element to be ordered
        element2 - the second element to be ordered
        Returns:
        a negative number if the first element is less than the second element; the value 0 if the first element is equal to the second element; and a positive number if the first element is greater than the second element
      • compareNames

        protected int compareNames​(IResource resource1,
                                   IResource resource2)
        Deprecated.
        Returns a number reflecting the collation order of the given resources based on their resource names.
        Parameters:
        resource1 - the first resource element to be ordered
        resource2 - the second resource element to be ordered
        Returns:
        a negative number if the first element is less than the second element; the value 0 if the first element is equal to the second element; and a positive number if the first element is greater than the second element
      • compareTypes

        protected int compareTypes​(IResource resource1,

        Deprecated.
        Returns a number reflecting the collation order of the given resources based on their respective file extensions. Resources with the same file extension will be collated based on their names.
        Parameters:
        resource1 - the first resource element to be ordered
        resource2 - the second resource element to be ordered
        Returns:
        a negative number if the first element is less than the second element; the value 0 if the first element is equal to the second element; and a positive number if the first element is greater than the second element
