Interface IWorkbenchWindowConfigurer


public interface IWorkbenchWindowConfigurer
Interface providing special access for configuring workbench windows.

Window configurer objects are in 1-1 correspondence with the workbench windows they configure. Clients may use get/setData to associate arbitrary state with the window configurer object.

Note that these objects are only available to the main application (the plug-in that creates and owns the workbench).

This interface is not intended to be implemented by clients.

Since:
3.0

      shellStyle - the shell style bits

    • getData

      Object getData(String key)
      Returns the data associated with this workbench window at the given key.
      Parameters:
      key - the key
      Returns:
      the data, or null if there is no data at the given key
    • setData

      void setData(String key, Object data)
      Sets the data associated with this workbench window at the given key.

    • addEditorAreaTransfer

      void addEditorAreaTransfer(Transfer transfer)
      Adds the given drag and drop Transfer type to the ones supported for drag and drop on the editor area of this workbench window.

      The workbench advisor would ordinarily call this method from the preWindowOpen callback. A newly-created workbench window supports no drag and drop transfer types. Adding EditorInputTransfer.getInstance() enables IEditorInputs to be transferred.

      Note that drag and drop to the editor area requires adding one or more transfer types (using addEditorAreaTransfer) and configuring a drop target listener (with configureEditorAreaDropListener) capable of handling any of those transfer types.

      Parameters:
      transfer - a drag and drop transfer object
      See Also:
    • configureEditorAreaDropListener

      void configureEditorAreaDropListener(DropTargetListener dropTargetListener)
      Configures the drop target listener for the editor area of this workbench window.

      The workbench advisor ordinarily calls this method from the preWindowOpen callback. A newly-created workbench window has no configured drop target listener for its editor area.

      Note that drag and drop to the editor area requires adding one or more transfer types (using addEditorAreaTransfer) and configuring a drop target listener (with configureEditorAreaDropListener) capable of handling any of those transfer types.

      Parameters:
      dropTargetListener - the drop target listener that will handle requests to drop an object on to the editor area of this window
