@FunctionalInterface public interface IHyperlinkDetector
In order to provide backward compatibility for clients of
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)
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.
nullif no hyperlink was detected
