Class EditionSelectionDialog

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    IShellProvider

    @Deprecated
    public class EditionSelectionDialog
    extends org.eclipse.compare.internal.ResizableDialog
    Deprecated.
    Use an org.eclipse.team.ui.history.IHistoryPageSource in conjunction with the org.eclipse.team.ui.history.IHistoryView or a HistoryPageCompareEditorInput. For sub-file elements, a org.eclipse.team.ui.history.ElementLocalHistoryPageSource can be used.
    A dialog where one input element can be compared against a list of historic variants (editions) of the same input element. The dialog can be used to implement functions like "Compare/Replace with Version" or "Compare/Replace from Local History" on workspace resources.

    In addition it is possible to specify a subsection of the input element (e.g. a method in a Java source file) by means of a "path". In this case the dialog compares only the subsection (as specified by the path) with the corresponding subsection in the list of editions. Only those editions are shown where the subsection differs from the same subsection in another edition thereby minimizing the number of presented variants. This functionality can be used to implement "Replace from Local History" for the Java language.

    Subsections of an input element are determined by first finding an IStructureCreator for the input's type. Then the method locate is used to extract the subsection.

    Each edition (variant in the list of variants) must implement the IModificationDate interface so that the dialog can sort the editions and present them in a tree structure where every node corresponds one day.

    The functionality is surfaced in a single function selectEdition.

    Clients may instantiate this class; it is not intended to be subclassed.

      • createDialogArea

        protected Control createDialogArea​(Composite parent2)
        Deprecated.
        Description copied from class: Dialog
        Creates and returns the contents of the upper part of this dialog (above the button bar).

        The Dialog implementation of this framework method creates and returns a new Composite with standard margins and spacing.

        The returned control's layout data must be an instance of GridData. This method must not modify the parent's layout.

        Subclasses must override this method but may call super as in the following example:

         Composite composite = (Composite) super.createDialogArea(parent);
         //add controls to composite as necessary
         return composite;
         
        Overrides:
        createDialogArea in class Dialog
        Parameters:
        parent2 - the parent composite to contain the dialog area

        the dialog area control
      • createButtonsForButtonBar

        protected void createButtonsForButtonBar​(Composite parent)
        Deprecated.
        Description copied from class: Dialog
        Adds buttons to this dialog's button bar.

        The Dialog implementation of this framework method adds standard ok and cancel buttons using the createButton framework method. These standard buttons will be accessible from getCancelButton, and getOKButton. Subclasses may override.

        Note: The common button order is: {other buttons}, OK, Cancel. On some platforms, Dialog.initializeBounds() will move the default button to the right.

        createButtonsForButtonBar in class Dialog
        Parameters:
        parent - the button bar composite
