    • 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 Window
      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 TitleAreaDialog
      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()
    • close

      public boolean close()
      The SaveAsDialog implementation of this Window method disposes of the banner image when the dialog is closed.
      close in class Dialog
      true if the window is (or was already) closed, and false if it is still open

    • 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.

      parent - the button bar composite
    • createDialogArea

      protected Control createDialogArea(Composite parent)
      Description copied from class: TitleAreaDialog
      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 no margins and spacing. Subclasses should override.

      createDialogArea in class TitleAreaDialog
      parent - The parent composite to contain the dialog area
      the dialog area control
    • getResult

      public IPath getResult()
      Returns the full path entered by the user.

      the path, or null if Cancel was pressed
    • okPressed

      protected void okPressed()
      Description copied from class: Dialog
      Notifies that the ok button of this dialog has been pressed.

      The Dialog implementation of this framework method sets this dialog's return code to Window.OK and closes the dialog. Subclasses may override.

    • setDialogComplete

      protected void setDialogComplete(boolean value)
      Sets the completion state of this dialog and adjusts the enable state of the Ok button accordingly.
      value - true if this dialog is compelete, and false otherwise
    • setOriginalFile

      public void setOriginalFile(IFile originalFile)
      Sets the original file to use.
      originalFile - the original file
    • setOriginalName

      public void setOriginalName(String originalName)
      Set the original file name to use. Used instead of setOriginalFile when the original resource is not an IFile. Must be called before create.
      originalName - default file name
    • getDialogBoundsSettings

      protected IDialogSettings getDialogBoundsSettings()
      Description copied from class: Dialog
      Gets the dialog settings that should be used for remembering the bounds of of the dialog, according to the dialog bounds strategy.

    • isResizable

      protected boolean isResizable()
      Description copied from class: Dialog
      Returns a boolean indicating whether the dialog should be considered resizable when the shell style is initially set.

      This method is used to ensure that all style bits appropriate for resizable dialogs are added to the shell style. Individual dialogs may always set the shell style to ensure that a dialog is resizable, but using this method ensures that resizable dialogs will be created with the same set of style bits.

      Style bits will never be removed based on the return value of this method. For example, if a dialog returns false, but also sets a style bit for a SWT.RESIZE border, the style bit will be honored.

      isResizable in class Dialog
      a boolean indicating whether the dialog is resizable and should have the default style bits for resizable dialogs
