Package SpecificationContribution managers coordinate contributions to shared UI resources such as menus, menu bars, tool bars, and status lines.
maintains the contributions as a dynamic list of contribution items (
Separator) can be included in contribution lists to
break up the list's visual representation. Internally, contribution lists
can be organized into named groups via special group markers (
to facilitate programatic insertion at specific positions within the list.
Three specific contribution managers are provided: a status line manager
StatusLineManager), a tool bar manager (
and a hierarchical menu manager (
IAction) are commands which can be triggered from
the UI, like the ones found in menus, toolbars, and buttons. Menus and
tools bars are typically populated with contribution items that delegate
to actions (
Note: None of the classes in this package maintain global state.
ClassDescriptionSome common functionality to share between implementations of
IAction.Abstract superclass for group marker classes.The standard abstract implementation of an action.A contribution item which delegates to an action.An abstract base implementation for contribution items.Abstract base class for all contribution managers, and standard implementation of
IContributionManager.An abstract contribution item implementation for adding an arbitrary SWT control to a tool bar.A cool bar manager is a contribution manager which realizes itself and its items in a cool bar control.A manager for a callback facility which is capable of querying external interfaces for additional information about actions and action contribution items.A simple implementation of the
ICallbackmechanism that simply takes a
CommandManager.Defines a callback mechanism for developer who wish to further control the visibility of legacy action-based contribution items.A callback which communicates with the applications binding manager.A callback mechanism for some external tool to communicate extra information to actions and action contribution items.An overridable mechanism to filter certain IActions from the execution bridge.A callback for executing execution events.A group marker is a special kind of contribution item denoting the beginning of a group.An action represents the non-UI side of a command which can be triggered by the end user.A contribution item represents a contribution to a shared UI resource such as a menu or tool bar.A contribution manager organizes contributions to such UI components as menus, toolbars and status lines.This interface is used by instances of
IContributionItemto determine if the values for certain properties have been overriden by their manager.The
ICoolBarManagerinterface provides protocol for managing contributions to a cool bar.Interface for something that creates and disposes of SWT menus.A menu listener that gets informed when a menu is about to show.A menu listener that gets informed when a menu is about to hide.The
IMenuManagerinterface provides protocol for managing contributions to a menu bar and its sub menus.The
IStatusLineManagerinterface provides protocol for displaying messages on a status line, for monitoring progress, and for managing contributions to the status line.The
IToolBarManagerinterface provides protocol for managing contributions to a tool bar.Some static utility methods for handling labels on actions.A menu manager is a contribution manager which realizes itself and its items in a menu control; either as a menu bar, a sub-menu, or a context menu.A separator is a special kind of contribution item which acts as a visual separator and, optionally, acts as a group marker.A contribution item to be used with status line managers.Represents the layout data object for
