Interface IRunnableContext

All Known Subinterfaces:
ILaunchConfigurationDialog, IWizardContainer, IWorkbenchWindow
All Known Implementing Classes:
ApplicationWindow, ProgressMonitorDialog, WizardDialog

public interface IRunnableContext

Interface for UI components which can execute a long-running operation in the form of an IRunnableWithProgress. The context is responsible for displaying a progress indicator and Cancel button to the end user while the operation is in progress; the context supplies a progress monitor to be used from code running inside the operation. Note that an IRunnableContext is not a runnable itself.

For examples of UI components which implement this interface, see ApplicationWindow, ProgressMonitorDialog, and WizardDialog.
