  • Method Details

    • fetchDeferredChildren

      void fetchDeferredChildren(Object object, IElementCollector collector, IProgressMonitor monitor)
      Called by a job run in a separate thread to fetch the children of this adapter. The adapter should in return notify of new children via the collector. This is generally used when a content provider is getting elements.

      It is good practice to check the passed in monitor for cancellation. This will provide good responsiveness for cancellation requests made by the user.

      object - the object to fetch the children for
      collector - the collector to notify about new children. Should not be null.
      monitor - a progress monitor that will never be null to support reporting and cancellation.
    • isContainer

      boolean isContainer()
      Returns whether this adapter may have children. This is an optimized method used by content providers to allow showing the [+] expand icon without having yet fetched the children for the element.

      If false is returned, then the content provider may assume that this adapter has no children. If true is returned, then the job manager may assume that this adapter may have children.

      trueif the adapter may have childen, and false otherwise.
    • getRule

      ISchedulingRule getRule(Object object)
      Returns the rule used to schedule the deferred fetching of children for this adapter.
      object - the object whose children are being fetched
      the scheduling rule. May be null.
