    • 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.
      createContents in class Dialog
      parent - the parent composite for the controls in this window. The type of layout used is determined by getLayout()
      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;
      createDialogArea in class ElementListSelectionDialog
      parent - the parent composite to contain the dialog area
      the dialog area control

      protected IDialogSettings getDialogBoundsSettings()
      Description copied from class: SelectionDialog
