    • Method Detail

      • buttonPressed

        protected void buttonPressed​(int buttonId)
        Description copied from class: Dialog
        Notifies that this dialog's button with the given id has been pressed.

        The Dialog implementation of this framework method calls okPressed if the ok button is the pressed, and cancelPressed if the cancel button is the pressed. All other button presses are ignored. Subclasses may override to handle other buttons, but should call super.buttonPressed if the default handling of the ok and cancel buttons is desired.

        Overrides:
        buttonPressed in class Dialog
        Parameters:
        buttonId - the id of the button that was pressed (see IDialogConstants.*_ID constants)
      • cancelPressed

        protected void cancelPressed()
        Description copied from class: Dialog
        Notifies that the cancel button of this dialog has been pressed.

        The Dialog implementation of this framework method sets this dialog's return code to Window.CANCEL and closes the dialog. Subclasses may override if desired.

        Overrides:
        cancelPressed in class Dialog
      • close

        public boolean close()
        Description copied from class: Window
        Closes this window, disposes its shell, and removes this window from its window manager (if it has one).

        This framework method may be extended (super.close must be called).

        Note that in order to prevent recursive calls to this method it does not call Shell#close(). As a result ShellListeners will not receive a shellClosed event.

        Overrides:
        close in class Dialog
        Returns:
        true if the window is (or was already) closed, and false if it is still open
        See Also:
        Window.close()
      • configureShell

        protected void configureShell​(Shell newShell)
        Description copied from class: Window
        Configures the given shell in preparation for opening this window in it.

        The default implementation of this framework method sets the shell's image and gives it a grid layout. Subclasses may extend or reimplement.

        Overrides:
        configureShell in class Window
        Parameters:
        newShell - the shell
      • constrainShellSize

        protected void constrainShellSize()
        Description copied from class: Window
        Constrain the shell size to be no larger than the display bounds.
        Overrides:
        constrainShellSize in class Window
      • createButtonsForButtonBar

        protected void createButtonsForButtonBar​(Composite parent)
        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.

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

        protected Control createContents​(Composite parent)
        Description copied from class: Dialog
        The Dialog implementation of this Window method creates and lays out the top level composite for the dialog, and determines the appropriate horizontal and vertical dialog units based on the font size. It then calls the createDialogArea and createButtonBar methods to create the dialog area and button bar, respectively. Overriding createDialogArea and createButtonBar are recommended rather than overriding this method.
        Overrides:
        createContents in class Dialog
        Parameters:
        parent - the parent composite for the controls in this window. The type of layout used is determined by getLayout()
        Returns:
        the control that will be returned by subsequent calls to getContents()
      • createDialogArea

        protected Control createDialogArea​(Composite parent)
        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:
        parent - the parent composite to contain the dialog area
        Returns:
        the dialog area control

                                  Control rightControl)

        newErrorMessage - the errorMessage to display or null
      • setMessage

        public void setMessage​(String newMessage)
        Set the message text. If the message line currently displays an error, the message is stored and will be shown after a call to clearErrorMessage

        Shortcut for setMessage(newMessage, NONE)

        Parameters:
        newMessage - the message, or null to clear the message
      • setMessage

        public void setMessage​(String newMessage,
                               int newType)
        Sets the message for this dialog with an indication of what type of message it is.

        The valid message types are one of NONE, INFORMATION,WARNING, or ERROR.

        Note that for backward compatibility, a message of type ERROR is different than an error message (set using setErrorMessage). An error message overrides the current message until the error message is cleared. This method replaces the current message and does not affect the error message.

        Parameters:
        newMessage - the message, or null to clear the message
        newType - the message type

      • isResizable

        protected boolean isResizable()
        Description copied from class: Dialog
        Returns a boolean indicating whether the dialog should be considered resizable when the shell style is initially set. This method is used to ensure that all style bits appropriate for resizable dialogs are added to the shell style. Individual dialogs may always set the shell style to ensure that a dialog is resizable, but using this method ensures that resizable dialogs will be created with the same set of style bits. Style bits will never be removed based on the return value of this method. For example, if a dialog returns false, but also sets a style bit for a SWT.RESIZE border, the style bit will be honored.
        Overrides:
        isResizable in class Dialog
        Returns:
        a boolean indicating whether the dialog is resizable and should have the default style bits for resizable dialogs
