Class RepositoryManipulationPage

All Implemented Interfaces:
ICopyable, IDialogPage, IMessageProvider, IPreferencePage, IWorkbenchPreferencePage

public class RepositoryManipulationPage extends PreferencePage implements IWorkbenchPreferencePage, ICopyable
Page that allows users to update, add, remove, import, and export repositories. This page can be hosted inside a preference dialog or inside its own dialog. When hosting this page inside a non-preference dialog, some of the dialog methods will likely have to call page methods. The following snippet shows how to host this page inside a TitleAreaDialog.
                TitleAreaDialog dialog = new TitleAreaDialog(shell) {

                        RepositoryManipulationPage page;

                        protected Control createDialogArea(Composite parent) {
                                page = new RepositoryManipulationPage();
                                this.setTitle("Software Sites");
                                this.setMessage("The enabled sites will be searched for software.  Disabled sites are ignored.");
                                return page.getControl();

                        protected void okPressed() {
                                if (page.performOk())

                        protected void cancelPressed() {
                                if (page.performCancel())
