Class CheckBoxCellEditor

All Implemented Interfaces:

public class CheckBoxCellEditor extends AbstractCellEditor
ICellEditor implementation for checkbox editors. Compared to a TextCellEditor, this editor will immediately commit and close itself on interaction. This is the same behaviour like a regular for a regular checkbox.

  • Method Details

    • activateCell

      protected org.eclipse.swt.widgets.Control activateCell(org.eclipse.swt.widgets.Composite parent, Object originalCanonicalValue)
      As soon as the editor is activated, flip the current data value and commit it. The repaint will pick up the new value and flip the image. This is only done if the mouse click is done within the rectangle of the painted checkbox image.
      Specified by:
      activateCell in class AbstractCellEditor
      parent - The parent Composite, needed for the creation of the editor control.
      originalCanonicalValue - The value that should be put to the activated editor control.
      The SWT Control to be used for capturing the new cell value.
    • getEditorValue

      public Boolean getEditorValue()
      Description copied from interface: ICellEditor
      Returns the current value in this editor prior to conversion. For a text editor that is used to edit integer values, this would mean it returns the text value instead of the converted integer value. This method is only intended to be used internally .
      The current value in this editor prior to conversion.
    • setEditorValue

      public void setEditorValue(Object value)
      Sets the given value to editor control. As this method is called by AbstractCellEditor.setCanonicalValue(Object) the given value should be already a converted Boolean value. The only other values accepted in here are null which is interpreted as false and Strings than can be converted to Boolean directly. Every other object will result in setting the editor value to false.
      value - The display value to set to the wrapped editor control.
    • getEditorControl

      public org.eclipse.swt.widgets.Canvas getEditorControl()
      The editor control that is wrapped by this ICellEditor.
    • createEditorControl

      public org.eclipse.swt.widgets.Canvas createEditorControl(org.eclipse.swt.widgets.Composite parent)
      Description copied from interface: ICellEditor
      Creates the editor control that is wrapped by this ICellEditor. Will use the style configurations in ConfigRegistry for styling the control.
      parent - The Composite that will be the parent of the new editor control. Can not be null
      The created editor control that is wrapped by this ICellEditor.
    • openMultiEditDialog

      public boolean openMultiEditDialog()
      Description copied from interface: ICellEditor
      This is a very special configuration to tell whether an ICellEditor should open a multi edit dialog for multi editing or not. Usually for multi editing there should be always a multi edit dialog be opened. There are only special cases where this doesn't make sense. The only types of ICellEditors that shouldn't open multi edit dialogs are editors that change their values directly and there is no interactively editor control opened, e.g. checkboxes.
      Specified by:
      openMultiEditDialog in interface ICellEditor
      openMultiEditDialog in class AbstractCellEditor
      true if for multi editing a multi edit dialog should be opened, false if the multi editing should be performed directly without opening a multi edit dialog. Note: true is the default value and changing it to false for a custom editor might cause issues if not dealed correctly.
    • activateAtAnyPosition

      public boolean activateAtAnyPosition()
      Description copied from interface: ICellEditor
      This method is intended to be used by IMouseEventMatcher implementations that need to check for the editor and the click position to determine whether an editor should be activated or not. By default this method will return true. Special implementations that need a different behavior need to return false instead. E.g. checkbox editors should only be activated in case the icon that represents the checkbox is clicked.
      Specified by:
      activateAtAnyPosition in interface ICellEditor
      activateAtAnyPosition in class AbstractCellEditor
      true if this ICellEditor should be activated by clicking at any position in the corresponding cell, false if there need to be a special position clicked.
    • activateOnTraversal

      public boolean activateOnTraversal(IConfigRegistry configRegistry, List<String> configLabels)
      Description copied from interface: ICellEditor
      This method is asked on tab traversal whether this ICellEditor should be automatically activated or not. This is necessary to avoid automatically changing the value of a checkbox or opening a dialog editor on traversal.
      Specified by:
      activateOnTraversal in interface ICellEditor
      activateOnTraversal in class AbstractCellEditor
      configRegistry - The IConfigRegistry to retrieve the configuration out of. Needed here because the instance IConfigRegistry might not be set on calling this method.
      configLabels - The labels out of the LabelStack of the cell whose editor should be activated.
      true if this ICellEditor should be activated in case of tab traversal, false if not.
