A manager for a callback facility which is capable of querying external interfaces for additional information about actions and action contribution items. This information typically includes things like accelerators and textual representations.
It is only necessary to use this mechanism if you will be using a mix of actions and commands, and wish the interactions to work properly.
For example, in the Eclipse workbench, this mechanism is used to allow the command architecture to override certain values in action contribution items.
This class is not intended to be called or extended by any external clients.

Method SummaryModifier and TypeMethodDescriptionAn accessor for the current call back.
static ExternalActionManagerRetrieves the current singleton instance of this class.
voidA mutator for the current call back
getInstancepublic static ExternalActionManager getInstance()Retrieves the current singleton instance of this class.
- The singleton instance; this value is never
getCallbackpublic ExternalActionManager.ICallback getCallback()An accessor for the current call back.
- The current callback mechanism being used. This is the callback

action contribution items. This value may be
nullif there is no extra information.
