    • Method Detail

      • getEditableValue

        public Object getEditableValue()
        Description copied from interface: IPropertySource
        Returns a value for this property source that can be edited in a property sheet.

        This value is used when this IPropertySource is appearing in the property sheet as the value of a property of some other IPropertySource

        This value is passed as the input to a cell editor opening on an IPropertySource.

        This value is also used when an IPropertySource is being used as the value in a setPropertyValue message. The receiver of the message would then typically use the editable value to update the original property source or construct a new instance.

        For example an email address which is a property source may have an editable value which is a string so that it can be edited in a text cell editor. The email address would also have a constructor or setter that takes the edited string so that an appropriate instance can be created or the original instance modified when the edited value is set.

        This behavior is important for another reason. When the property sheet is showing properties for more than one object (multiple selection), a property sheet entry will display and edit a single value (typically coming from the first selected object). After a property has been edited in a cell editor, the same value is set as the property value for all of the objects. This is fine for primitive types but otherwise all of the objects end up with a reference to the same value. Thus by creating an editable value and using it to update the state of the original property source object, one is able to edit several property source objects at once (multiple selection).

        a value that can be edited
      • getPropertyDescriptors

        public IPropertyDescriptor[] getPropertyDescriptors()
        Description copied from interface: IPropertySource
        Returns the list of property descriptors for this property source. The getPropertyValue and setPropertyValue methods are used to read and write the actual property values by specifying the property ids from these property descriptors.

        Implementors should cache the descriptors as they will be asked for the descriptors with any edit/update. Since descriptors provide cell editors, returning the same descriptors if possible allows for efficient updating.

        Specified by:
        getPropertyDescriptors in interface IPropertySource
        the property descriptors
      • isPropertySet

        public boolean isPropertySet​(Object property)
        Description copied from interface: IPropertySource
        Returns whether the value of the property with the given id has changed from its default value. Returns false if this source does not have the specified property.

        If the notion of default value is not meaningful for the specified property then false is returned.

        Specified by:
        isPropertySet in interface IPropertySource
        property - the id of the property
        true if the value of the specified property has changed from its original default value, false if the specified property does not have a meaningful default value, and false if this source does not have the specified property

      • getFile

        protected File getFile​(IResource resource)
        Get the equivalent of the passed IFile. If the location does not exist then return null
        resource - the resource to lookup
        Returns: or null.
