Package org.eclipse.jface.dialogs

Provides support for dialogs.

Package Specification

A dialog is a specialized window, typically consisting of a dialog area and a button bar, designed for narrow-focussed communication with the user.

The dialog framework consists of an abstract base class (Dialog), along with more concrete dialog subclasses for displaying messages (MessageDialog), soliciting text input (InputDialog), and displaying progress during a long-running operation (ProgressMonitorDialog).

Dialog stores (IDialogStore, DialogStore) provide a general framework for organizing a dialog's settings into key/value pairs. Multi-page dialogs are made easier through the use of dialog pages (IDialogPage, DialogPage).

Note: None of the classes in this package maintain global state.
