Class SelectionEnabler

  • public final class SelectionEnabler
    extends Object
    Determines the enablement status given a selection. This calculation is done based on the definition of the enablesFor attribute, enablement element, and the selection element found in the IConfigurationElement provided.

    This class can be instantiated by clients. It is not intended to be extended.

    3.0 Note: The dependency on org.eclipse.jface.text for ITextSelection must be severed It may be possible to do with IActionFilter generic workbench registers IActionFilter for "size" property against IStructuredSelection workbench text registers IActionFilter for "size" property against ITextSelection code here: sel.getAdapter(IActionFilter.class) As an interim solution, use reflection to access selections implementing ITextSelection
