    Direct Known Subclasses:

    public class ListSelectionDialog
    extends SelectionDialog
    A standard dialog which solicits a list of selections from the user. This class is configured with an arbitrary data model represented by content and label provider objects. The getResult method returns the selected elements.

    This class may be instantiated; it is not intended to be subclassed.


     ListSelectionDialog dlg = new ListSelectionDialog(getShell(), input, new BaseWorkbenchContentProvider(),
                    new WorkbenchLabelProvider(), "Select the resources to save:");
     dlg.setTitle("Save Resources");;
    This class is not intended to be subclassed by clients.

        parentShell - the parent shell
        input - the root element to populate this dialog with
        contentProvider - the content provider for navigating the model

    • Method Detail

      • configureShell

        protected void configureShell​(Shell shell)
        Description copied from class: Window
        Configures the given shell in preparation for opening this window in it.

        The default implementation of this framework method sets the shell's image and gives it a grid layout. Subclasses may extend or reimplement.

        configureShell in class SelectionDialog
        shell - the shell
      • createContents

        protected Control createContents​(Composite parent)
        Description copied from class: Dialog
        The Dialog implementation of this Window method creates and lays out the top level composite for the dialog, and determines the appropriate horizontal and vertical dialog units based on the font size. It then calls the createDialogArea and createButtonBar methods to create the dialog area and button bar, respectively. Overriding createDialogArea and createButtonBar are recommended rather than overriding this method.
        createContents in class Dialog
        parent - the parent composite for the controls in this window. The type of layout used is determined by getLayout()
        the control that will be returned by subsequent calls to getContents()
      • createDialogArea

        protected Control createDialogArea​(Composite parent)
        Description copied from class: Dialog
        Creates and returns the contents of the upper part of this dialog (above the button bar).

        The Dialog implementation of this framework method creates and returns a new Composite with standard margins and spacing.

        The returned control's layout data must be an instance of GridData. This method must not modify the parent's layout.

        Subclasses must override this method but may call super as in the following example:

         Composite composite = (Composite) super.createDialogArea(parent);
         //add controls to composite as necessary
         return composite;
        createDialogArea in class Dialog
        parent - the parent composite to contain the dialog area
        the dialog area control
      • createButtonsForButtonBar

        protected void createButtonsForButtonBar​(Composite parent)
        Description copied from class: Dialog
        Adds buttons to this dialog's button bar.

        The Dialog implementation of this framework method adds standard ok and cancel buttons using the createButton framework method. These standard buttons will be accessible from getCancelButton, and getOKButton. Subclasses may override.

        Note: The common button order is: {other buttons}, OK, Cancel. On some platforms, Dialog.initializeBounds() will move the default button to the right.

        createButtonsForButtonBar in class SelectionDialog
        parent - the button bar composite
      • getViewer

        protected CheckboxTableViewer getViewer()

        the viewer, or null if not yet created
      • getCheckboxValue

        public boolean getCheckboxValue()
        the current or, if the dialog has been closed, the last value of the optional check box; false when there is no optional check box and no default value has been set
      • okPressed

        protected void okPressed()
        The ListSelectionDialog implementation of this Dialog method builds a list of the selected elements for later retrieval by the client and closes this dialog.
