Interface ISourceModifier


  • public interface ISourceModifier
    A source modifier can be used to modify the source of a move or copy edit before it gets inserted at the target position. This is useful if the text to be copied has to be modified before it is inserted without changing the original source.

        ReplaceEdit[] getModifications​(String source)
        Returns the modification to be done to the passed string in form of replace edits. The set of returned replace edits must modify disjoint text regions. Violating this requirement will result in a BadLocationException while executing the associated move or copy edit.

        The caller of this method is responsible to apply the returned edits to the passed source.

        Parameters:
        source - the source to be copied or moved
        Returns:
        an array of ReplaceEdits describing the modifications.

        ISourceModifier copy()

        Returns:
        the copy of the source modifier
