Interface FactoryDataType

  • All Superinterfaces:
    BuiltInDataType, DataType, ExtensionPoint
    All Known Implementing Classes:
    ElfDataType, FactoryStructureDataType, PeDataType

    public interface FactoryDataType
    extends BuiltInDataType
    A DataType class that creates data types dynamically should implement this interface. This prevents them being directly referred to by a data instance within the listing or within a composite (e.g., added to a composite using the structure editor). FactoryDataType's should never be parented (e.g., Pointer, Structure component, Typedef, etc.).
