<extension point="org.eclipse.ui.intro.configExtension"> <standbyPart pluginId="com.x.y.somePluginId" class="com.x.y.someClass" id="com.x.y.someContentPartId"> </standbyPart> </extension>Standby content parts have a life cycle that starts with a call to init, shortly after part construction, followed by a call to createPartControl. During these two calls, the part is responsible for creating its content and using the memento to try to recreate its previous state. SetInput is the last method called when trying to create a standby part.
Method SummaryModifier and TypeMethodDescription
voidCreates the SWT controls for this standby part.
dispose()Disposes of this standby part.Returns the primary control associated with this standby part.
voidInitializes this intro standby content part with the given intro site.
voidSaves the object state within a memento.
setFocus()Asks this standby part to take focus.
voidSets the input to show in this standby part.
createPartControlCreates the SWT controls for this standby part.
Clients should not call this method. The intro framework calls this method when it needs to.
parent- the parent control
toolkit- the form toolkit being used by the IIntroPart implementation
getControlControl getControl()Returns the primary control associated with this standby part. The control is typically set during the createPartControl() call when this part is being created.
- the SWT control which displays this standby part's content, or
nullif this standby part's controls have not yet been created.
initInitializes this intro standby content part with the given intro site. A memento is passed to the part which contains a snapshot of the part state from a previous session. Where possible, the part should try to recreate that state.
This method is automatically called by the workbench shortly after part construction. It marks the start of this parts' lifecycle. Clients must not call this method.
introPart- the intro part hosting this stanndby content part.
memento- this part state or
nullif there is no previous saved state
PartInitException- if this part was not initialized successfully.
(Object input)Sets the input to show in this standby part. Note that input can be null, such as when the part if created through an Intro URL that does not have an input specified, or when this standby part is being recreated from a previous workbench session. In this case, the standby part is responsible for handling a null input, and recreating itself from a cached IMemento.
input- the input object to be used by this standby part.
setFocusvoid setFocus()Asks this standby part to take focus.
Clients should not call this method (the intro framework calls this method at appropriate times).
disposevoid dispose()Disposes of this standby part.
Clients should not call this method. The intro framework calls this method when the Customizable IntroPart is closed.
(IMemento memento)Saves the object state within a memento.
This method is automatically called by the workbench at appropriate times. Clients must not call this method directly.
