Interface PopupActionProvider

  • All Known Implementing Classes:

    public interface PopupActionProvider
    Provides notification when the popup action menu is displayed. This interface allows temporary/transient actions (those not registered with the tool via DockingTool.addAction(DockingActionIf)) to be used in the popup context menu.

    Most clients will register actions directly with the tool. However, clients that have numerous actions that vary greatly with the context can use this method to only create those actions on demand as the popup is about to be shown, and only if their context is active. This mechanism can reduce the tool's action management overhead. Once you have created an implementation of this class, you must register it with DockingTool.addPopupActionProvider(PopupActionProvider).
