public interface IPresentationReconciler
IPresentationReconcilerdefines and maintains the representation of a text viewer's document in the presence of changes applied to the document. An
The presentation reconciler keeps track of changes applied to the text viewer. It sends each change to presentation damagers which are registered for the content types of the regions in which the change occurred. The presentation reconciler passes the computed damage to presentation repairer which construct text presentations. When applied to the presentation reconciler's text viewer, those text presentations bring the document's presentation in sync with the document's content and thus repair the damage. A presentation damager is expected to return damage which is a valid input for a presentation repairer registered for the same content type as the damager.
A presentation reconciler should always be configured with a pair of damager/repairer strategies. I.e. for each damager there should be a corresponding repairer.
