Interface IActionProvider

public interface IActionProvider
Allows a tabbed properties view to make contributions to action bars.

An action provider is called when the tabbed properties view becomes the active view. It is at this point where the action provider can override the action bars.

Normally TabbedPropertySheetPage.setActionBars(IActionBars) is sufficient, but this is only called once and is not sufficient for a contributor that is selection based. An example is the Project Explorer where different providers contribute different action sets and properties configurations.

The most frequent use of setActionBars() is to retarget the global actions for undo and redo based on the active tabbed properties view contributor.
