Class AbstractTreeViewer

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    IInputProvider, IInputSelectionProvider, IPostSelectionProvider, ISelectionProvider
    Direct Known Subclasses:
    TreeViewer

    public abstract class AbstractTreeViewer
    extends ColumnViewer
    Abstract base implementation for tree-structure-oriented viewers (trees and table trees).

    Nodes in the tree can be in either an expanded or a collapsed state, depending on whether the children on a node are visible. This class introduces public methods for controlling the expanding and collapsing of nodes.

    As of 3.2, AbstractTreeViewer supports multiple equal elements (each with a different parent chain) in the tree. This support requires that clients enable the element map by calling setUseHashLookup(true).

    Content providers for abstract tree viewers must implement one of the interfaces ITreeContentProvider or (as of 3.2, to support multiple equal elements) ITreePathContentProvider.

    This class is not intended to be subclassed outside of the JFace viewers framework.

    • Constructor Detail

      • AbstractTreeViewer

        protected AbstractTreeViewer()
        Creates an abstract tree viewer. The viewer has no input, no content provider, a default label provider, no sorter, no filters, and has auto-expand turned off.
    • Method Detail

      • add

        public void add​(Object parentElementOrTreePath,
                        Object... childElements)
        Adds the given child elements to this viewer as children of the given parent element. If this viewer does not have a sorter, the elements are added at the end of the parent's list of children in the order given; otherwise, the elements are inserted at the appropriate positions.

        This method should be called (by the content provider) when elements have been added to the model, in order to cause the viewer to accurately reflect the model. This method only affects the viewer, not the model.

        Parameters:
        parentElementOrTreePath - the parent element
        childElements - the child elements to add
      • internalFindItems

        protected final Widget[] internalFindItems​(Object parentElementOrTreePath)
        Find the items for the given element of tree path
        Parameters:
        parentElementOrTreePath - the element or tree path
        Returns:
        the items for that element
        Since:
        3.3
      • internalAdd

        protected void internalAdd​(Widget widget,
                                   Object parentElementOrTreePath,
                                   Object[] childElements)
        Adds the given child elements to this viewer as children of the given parent element.

        EXPERIMENTAL. Not to be used except by JDT. This method was added to support JDT's explorations into grouping by working sets. This method cannot be removed without breaking binary backwards compatibility, but should not be called by clients.

        Parameters:
        widget - the widget for the parent element
        parentElementOrTreePath - the parent element
        childElements - the child elements to add
        Since:
        3.1
      • indexForElement

        protected int indexForElement​(Widget parent,
                                      Object element)
        Returns the index where the item should be inserted.
        Parameters:
        parent - The parent widget the element will be inserted into.
        element - The element to insert.
        Returns:
        the index of the element
      • getSortedChildren

        protected Object[] getSortedChildren​(Object parentElementOrTreePath)
        Description copied from class: StructuredViewer
        Returns the sorted and filtered set of children of the given element. The resulting array must not be modified, as it may come directly from the model's internal state.
        Overrides:
        getSortedChildren in class StructuredViewer
        Parameters:
        parentElementOrTreePath - the parent element
        Returns:
        a sorted and filtered array of child elements
      • add

        public void add​(Object parentElementOrTreePath,
                        Object childElement)
        Adds the given child element to this viewer as a child of the given parent element. If this viewer does not have a sorter, the element is added at the end of the parent's list of children; otherwise, the element is inserted at the appropriate position.

        This method should be called (by the content provider) when a single element has been added to the model, in order to cause the viewer to accurately reflect the model. This method only affects the viewer, not the model. Note that there is another method for efficiently processing the simultaneous addition of multiple elements.

        Parameters:
        parentElementOrTreePath - the parent element or path
        childElement - the child element

        public void setAutoExpandLevel​(int level)
        Sets the auto-expand level to be used when the input of the viewer is set using StructuredViewer.setInput(Object). The value 0 means that there is no auto-expand; 1 means that the invisible root element is expanded (since most concrete subclasses do not show the root element, there is usually no practical difference between using the values 0 and 1); 2 means that top-level elements are expanded, but not their children; 3 means that top-level elements are expanded, and their children, but not grandchildren; and so on.

        The value ALL_LEVELS means that all subtrees should be expanded.

        Note that in previous releases, the Javadoc for this method had an off-by one error. See bug 177669 for details.
