Factory methods for creating observables for JFace viewers
Since:
1.1
Restriction:
  • Constructor Details

    • ViewersObservables

      public ViewersObservables()
      Deprecated.
  • Method Details

    • observeDelayedValue

      public static <T> IViewerObservableValue<T> observeDelayedValue(int delay, IViewerObservableValue<T> observable)
      Deprecated.
      Returns an observable which delays notification of value change events from observable until delay milliseconds have passed since the last change event, or until a FocusOut event is received from the underlying viewer control (whichever happens earlier). This class helps to delay validation until the user stops changing the value (e.g. until a user stops changing a viewer selection). To notify about pending changes, the returned observable value will fire a stale event when the wrapped observable value fires a change event, but this change is being delayed.
      Parameters:
      delay - the delay in milliseconds
      observable - the observable being delayed
      Returns:
      an observable which delays notification of value change events from observable until delay milliseconds have passed since the last change event.

    • observeSingleSelection

      public static IObservableValue observeSingleSelection(ISelectionProvider selectionProvider)
      Deprecated.
      Returns an observable value that tracks the current selection of the given selection provider. If the selection provider provides selections of type IStructuredSelection, the observable value will be the first element of the structured selection as returned by IStructuredSelection.getFirstElement().
      Parameters:
      selectionProvider - provider to get selection from; not null
      Returns:
      the observable value tracking the (single) selection of the given selection provider
    • observeSinglePostSelection

      public static IObservableValue observeSinglePostSelection(IPostSelectionProvider selectionProvider)
      Deprecated.
      Returns an observable value that tracks the current post selection of the given post selection provider. If the selection provider provides selections of type IStructuredSelection, the observable value will be the first element of the structured selection as returned by IStructuredSelection.getFirstElement().
      Parameters:
      selectionProvider - The selection provider on which to track the post selection.
      Returns:
      the observable value tracking the (single) post selection of the given post selection provider
      Since:
      1.4
    • observeMultiSelection

      public static IObservableList observeMultiSelection(ISelectionProvider selectionProvider)
      Deprecated.
      Returns an observable list that tracks the current selection of the given selection provider. Assumes that the selection provider provides selections of type IStructuredSelection. Note that the observable list will not honor the full contract of java.util.List in that it may delete or reorder elements based on what the selection provider returns from ISelectionProvider.getSelection() after having called ISelectionProvider.setSelection(org.eclipse.jface.viewers.ISelection) based on the requested change to the observable list. The affected methods are add, addAll, and set.
      Parameters:
      selectionProvider - provider to get selection from; not null
      Returns:
      the observable value tracking the (multi) selection of the given selection provider
      Since:
      1.2

      public static IObservableList observeMultiPostSelection(IPostSelectionProvider selectionProvider)
      Deprecated.
      Returns an observable list that tracks the current post selection of the given post selection provider. Assumes that the selection provider provides selections of type IStructuredSelection. Note that the observable list will not honor the full contract of java.util.List in that it may delete or reorder elements based on what the selection provider returns from ISelectionProvider.getSelection() after having called ISelectionProvider.setSelection(org.eclipse.jface.viewers.ISelection) based on the requested change to the observable list. The affected methods are add, addAll, and set.

    • observeSingleSelection

      public static IViewerObservableValue observeSingleSelection(Viewer viewer)
      Deprecated.

      public static IViewerObservableValue observeSinglePostSelection(StructuredViewer viewer)
      Deprecated.
      Returns an observable value that tracks the current post selection of the given structured viewer. If the viewer provides selections of type IStructuredSelection, the observable value will be the first element of the structured selection as returned by IStructuredSelection.getFirstElement().

      public static IObservableValue observeInput(Viewer viewer)
      Deprecated.
      Returns an observable value that tracks the input of the given viewer.

      Returns:
      an observable value tracking the input of the given viewer

      public static IViewerObservableSet observeFilters(StructuredViewer viewer)
      Deprecated.
      Returns an observable set that tracks the filters of the given viewer. Note that the returned set will not track changes that are made using direct API on StructuredViewer (by calling addFilter(), removeFilter(), or setFilters()) -- it is assumed that filters are only changed through the returned set.

      viewer - viewer containing the filters to be tracked
      Returns:
      an observable set that tracks the filters of the given viewer.
