Interface DesignerBindings

    • Method Detail

      • getRelatedNodesSelector

        RelatedNodesSelector getRelatedNodesSelector()
        Returns an instance of RelatedNodesSelector, or null if it should be defaulted to using the old symbol table (ScopedNode). That default behaviour is implemented in the designer directly.
      • getMainAttribute

        Attribute getMainAttribute​(Node node)
        Returns the "main" attribute of the given node. The string representation of this attribute (Attribute.getStringValue()) will be displayed next to the node type in the treeview. For example, for a numeric literal, this could return the attribute (@IntValue, 1), for a class declaration, it could return the name of the class (eg (@SimpleName, String).

        If there's no obvious "main" attribute, or if the node is not supported, returns null. If the returned attribute is non-null, but its string value is, the return value is ignored.

        Note: the attribute doesn't need to originate from Node.getXPathAttributesIterator(), it can be constructed ad-hoc. The name of the attribute should be a valid name for the XPath attribute though.

        This method is meant to break the designer's dependency on Node.getImage().

      • isExpandedByDefaultInTree

        boolean isExpandedByDefaultInTree​(Node node)
        Returns true if the children of this node should be displayed in the treeview by default. Returning "true" is the safe default value.
      • getIcon

        DesignerBindings.TreeIconId getIcon​(Node node)
        Returns a constant describing an icon that the node should bear in the treeview and other relevant places. Returns null if no icon is applicable.
