Class DeviceResourceManager

  • public final class DeviceResourceManager
    extends ResourceManager
    Manages SWT resources for a particular device.

    IMPORTANT: in most cases clients should use a LocalResourceManager instead of a DeviceResourceManager. To create a resource manager on a particular display, use new LocalResourceManager(JFaceResources.getResources(myDisplay)). DeviceResourceManager should only be used directly when managing resources for a device other than a Display (such as a printer).

        Specified by:

      • dispose

        public void dispose()
        Deallocates any resources allocated by this registry that have not yet been deallocated.
      • create

        public final Object create​(DeviceResourceDescriptor descriptor)
                            throws DeviceResourceException
        Description copied from class: ResourceManager
        Returns the resource described by the given descriptor. If the resource already exists, the reference count is incremented and the exiting resource is returned. Otherwise, a new resource is allocated. Every call to this method should have a corresponding call to ResourceManager.destroy(DeviceResourceDescriptor).

        If the resource is intended to live for entire lifetime of the resource manager, a subsequent call to ResourceManager.destroy(DeviceResourceDescriptor) may be omitted and the resource will be cleaned up when the resource manager is disposed. This pattern is useful for short-lived LocalResourceManagers, but should never be used with the global resource manager since doing so effectively leaks the resource.

        The resources returned from this method are reference counted and may be shared internally with other resource managers. They should never be disposed outside of the ResourceManager framework, or it will cause exceptions in other code that shares them. For example, never call Resource.dispose() on anything returned from this method.

        Callers may safely downcast the result to the resource type associated with the descriptor. For example, when given an ImageDescriptor, the return value of this method will always be an Image.
