      • getTextFileBuffer

        @Deprecated
        ITextFileBuffer getTextFileBuffer​(IPath location)
        Deprecated.
        Returns the text file buffer managed for the file at the given location or null if either there is no such text file buffer.

        The provided location is either a full path of a workspace resource or an absolute path in the local file system. The file buffer manager does not resolve the location of workspace resources in the case of linked resources.

        Parameters:
        location - the location
        Returns:
        the text file buffer managed for that location or null
      • getTextFileBuffer

        ITextFileBuffer getTextFileBuffer​(IPath location,
                                          LocationKind locationKind)
        Returns the text file buffer managed for the file at the given location or null if there is no such text file buffer.

        The type of the provided location is specified by the given locationKind.

        Parameters:
        location - the location
        locationKind - the kind of the given location
        Returns:
        the text file buffer managed for that location or null
        Since:
        3.3

      • getFileStoreTextFileBuffer

        ITextFileBuffer getFileStoreTextFileBuffer​(IFileStore fileStore)
        Returns the text file buffer managed for the given file store or null if there is no such text file buffer.

        Note: This API must not be used if the given file store maps to a resource contained in the workspace. A file buffer that has been connected using a path will not be found. The encoding of the file in the workspace will not be considered.

        We had to use a different name than getTextFileBuffer for this method due to https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=148844

        Parameters:
        fileStore - the file store
        Returns:
        the text file buffer managed for that file store or null
        Since:
        3.3
      • getTextFileBuffer

        ITextFileBuffer getTextFileBuffer​(IDocument document)
        Returns the text file buffer managed for the given document or null if there is no such text file buffer.

        Note: This method goes through the list of registered buffers and tests whether its document matches the given one. Therefore this method should not be used in performance critical code.

        Parameters:
        document - the document for which to find the text file buffer
        Returns:
        the text file buffer managed for that document or null
        Since:
        3.3
      • getDefaultEncoding

        String getDefaultEncoding()
        Returns the default encoding that is used to read the contents of text files if no other encoding is specified.
        Returns:
        the default text file encoding
      • createEmptyDocument

        @Deprecated
        IDocument createEmptyDocument​(IPath location)
        Deprecated.
        Creates a new empty document. The document is set up in the same way as it would be used in a text file buffer for a file at the given location.

        The provided location is either a full path of a workspace resource or an absolute path in the local file system. The file buffer manager does not resolve the location of workspace resources in the case of linked resources.

        Parameters:
        location - the location used to set up the newly created document or null if unknown
        Returns:
        a new empty document
      • createEmptyDocument

        IDocument createEmptyDocument​(IPath location,
                                      LocationKind locationKind)
        Creates a new empty document. The document is set up in the same way as it would be used in a text file buffer for a file at the given location.

        The type of the provided location is specified by the given locationKind.

        Parameters:
        location - the location used to set up the newly created document or null if unknown
        locationKind - the kind of the given location
        Returns:
        a new empty document

      • createAnnotationModel

        @Deprecated
        IAnnotationModel createAnnotationModel​(IPath location)
        Deprecated.
        Creates a new annotation for the given location.

        The provided location is either a full path of a workspace resource or an absolute path in the local file system. The file buffer manager does not resolve the location of workspace resources in the case of linked resources.

        Parameters:
        location - the location used to create the new annotation model
        Returns:
        the newly created annotation model
      • createAnnotationModel

      • isTextFileLocation

        @Deprecated
        boolean isTextFileLocation​(IPath location)
        Deprecated.
        As of 3.2, replaced by isTextFileLocation(IPath, boolean)
        Returns whether a file at the given location is or can be considered a text file. If the file exists, the concrete content type of the file is checked. If the concrete content type for the existing file can not be determined, this method returns true. If the file does not exist, it is checked whether a text content type is associated with the given location. If no content type is associated with the location, this method returns true.

        The provided location is either a full path of a workspace resource or an absolute path in the local file system. The file buffer manager does not resolve the location of workspace resources in the case of linked resources.

        Parameters:
        location - the location to check
        Returns:
        true if the location is a text file location
        Since:
        3.1
      • isTextFileLocation

        boolean isTextFileLocation​(IPath location,
                                   boolean strict)
        Returns whether a file at the given location is or can be considered a text file. If the file exists, the concrete content type of the file is checked. If the concrete content type for the existing file can not be determined, this method returns !strict. If the file does not exist, it is checked whether a text content type is associated with the given location. If no content type is associated with the location, this method returns !strict.

        The provided location is either a full path of a workspace resource or an absolute path in the local file system. The file buffer manager does not resolve the location of workspace resources in the case of linked resources.

        Parameters:
        location - the location to check
        strict - true if a file with unknown content type is not treated as text file, false otherwise
        Returns:
        true if the location is a text file location
