Class UpdateSetStrategy<S,​D>

  • Type Parameters:
    S - the type of the elements on the source side (i.e. the model side if this is a model-to-target update and the target side if this is a target-to-model update)
    D - the type of the elements on the destination side (i.e. the target side if this is a model-to-target update and the model side if this is a target-to-model update)

    public class UpdateSetStrategy<S,​D>
    extends Object
    Customizes a Binding between two observable sets. The following behaviors can be customized via the strategy:
    • Conversion
    • Automatic processing

    Conversion:
    When elements are added they can be converted to the destination element type.

    Automatic processing:
    The processing to perform when the source observable changes. This behavior is configured via policies provided on construction of the strategy (e.g. POLICY_NEVER, POLICY_ON_REQUEST, POLICY_UPDATE).

    Since:
    1.1

    • Field Detail

      • POLICY_NEVER

        public static final int POLICY_NEVER
        Policy constant denoting that the source observable's state should not be tracked and that the destination observable's state should never be updated.
      • POLICY_ON_REQUEST

        public static final int POLICY_ON_REQUEST
        Policy constant denoting that the source observable's state should not be tracked, but that conversion and updating the destination observable's state should be performed when explicitly requested.
      • POLICY_UPDATE

        public static final int POLICY_UPDATE
        Policy constant denoting that the source observable's state should be tracked, and that conversion and updating the destination observable's state should be performed automatically on every change of the source observable state.

    • Constructor Detail

      • UpdateSetStrategy

        public UpdateSetStrategy()
        Creates a new update list strategy for automatically updating the destination observable list whenever the source observable list changes. A default converter will be provided. The defaults can be changed by calling one of the setter methods.
      • UpdateSetStrategy

        public UpdateSetStrategy​(int updatePolicy)
        Creates a new update list strategy with a configurable update policy. A default converter will be provided. The defaults can be changed by calling one of the setter methods.
        Parameters:
        updatePolicy - one of POLICY_NEVER, POLICY_ON_REQUEST, or POLICY_UPDATE
      • UpdateSetStrategy

        public UpdateSetStrategy​(boolean provideDefaults,
                                 int updatePolicy)
        Creates a new update list strategy with a configurable update policy. A default converter will be provided if provideDefaults is true, see DataBindingContext. The defaults can be changed by calling one of the setter methods.
        Parameters:
        provideDefaults - if true, default validators and a default converter will be provided based on the observable list's type, see DataBindingContext
        updatePolicy - one of POLICY_NEVER, POLICY_ON_REQUEST, or POLICY_UPDATE

      • fillDefaults

        protected void fillDefaults​(IObservableSet<? extends S> source,
                                    IObservableSet<? super D> destination)
        Parameters:
        source - source observable, to be used for its type
        destination - destination observable, to be used for its type
      • getUpdatePolicy

        public int getUpdatePolicy()
        Returns:
        the update policy
      • setConverter

        public UpdateSetStrategy<S,​D> setConverter​(IConverter<S,​D> converter)
        Sets the converter to be invoked when converting added elements from the source element type to the destination element type.

        If the converter throws any exceptions they are reported as validation errors, using the exception message.

        Parameters:
        converter - the new converter
        Returns:
        the receiver, to enable method call chaining
      • doAdd

        protected IStatus doAdd​(IObservableSet<? super D> observableSet,
                                D element)
        Adds the given element at the given index to the given observable list. Clients may extend but must call the super implementation.
        Parameters:
        observableSet - the set to add to
        element - element to add
        Returns:
        a status
      • doRemove

        protected IStatus doRemove​(IObservableSet<? super D> observableSet,
                                   D element)
        Removes the element at the given index from the given observable list. Clients may extend but must call the super implementation.
        Parameters:
        observableSet - the set to remove from
        element - the element to remove
        Returns:
        a status
      • never

        public static <S,​D> UpdateSetStrategy<S,​D> never()
        Convenience method that creates an update strategy that never updates its observables, using POLICY_NEVER and no defaults.
        Returns:
        the update strategy
