      createControl in interface IDialogPage
      parent - the parent composite
    • createFile

      @Deprecated protected void createFile(IFile fileHandle, InputStream contents, IProgressMonitor monitor) throws CoreException
      As of 3.3, use or override createNewFile() which uses the undoable operation support. To supply customized file content for a subclass, use getInitialContents().
      Creates a file resource given the file handle and contents.
      fileHandle - the file handle to create a file resource with
      contents - the initial contents of the new file resource, or null if none (equivalent to an empty stream)
      monitor - the progress monitor to show visual progress with
      CoreException - if the operation fails
      OperationCanceledException - if the operation is canceled
    • createFileHandle

      protected IFile createFileHandle(IPath filePath)
      Creates a file resource handle for the file with the given workspace path. This method does not create the file resource; this is the responsibility of createFile.
      filePath - the path of the file resource to create a handle for
      the new file resource handle

    • createLinkTarget

      protected void createLinkTarget()
      Creates the link target path if a link target has been specified.
    • createNewFile

      public IFile createNewFile()
      Creates a new file resource in the selected container and with the selected name. Creates any missing resource containers along the path; does nothing if the container resources already exist.

      In normal usage, this method is invoked after the user has pressed Finish on the wizard; the enablement of the Finish button implies that all controls on on this page currently contain valid values.

      Note that this page caches the new file once it has been successfully created; subsequent invocations of this method will answer the same file resource without attempting to create it again.

      This method should be called within a workspace modify operation since it creates resources.

    • getContainerFullPath

      public IPath getContainerFullPath()
