Interface IStatusContextViewer

All Known Implementing Classes:

public interface IStatusContextViewer
Viewer to present the context object of a refactoring status entry.

Status context viewers are associated with a context object via the extension point org.eclipse.ltk.ui.refactoring.statusContextViewers. Implementors of this extension point must therefore implement this interface.

To ensure visual consistency across all provided context viewers the widget hierarchy provided through the method createControl(Composite) has to use a ViewForm as its root widget.

Clients of this interface should call createControl before calling setInput.
