Class AbstractTemplatesPage

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    IPage, IPageBookViewPage, ITemplatesPage, ITemplatesPageExtension

    public abstract class AbstractTemplatesPage
    extends Page
    implements ITemplatesPage, ITemplatesPageExtension
    Abstract default implementation for ITemplatesPage.

    Clients who are defining an editor may elect to provide a corresponding templates page. This templates page will be presented to the user via the Templates View (the user decides whether their workbench window contains this view) whenever that editor is active. This class should be subclassed by clients.

    Internally, a AbstractTemplatesPage uses the template store to display different categories. A link to editor mode on the templates page allows to filtering of the categories to only that are supported in this context.
