Interface IPositionUpdater

All Known Implementing Classes:

public interface IPositionUpdater

A position updater is responsible for adapting document positions. When installed on a document, the position updater updates the document's positions to changes applied to this document. Document updaters can be selective, i.e. they might only update positions of a certain category.

Position updaters are of primary importance for the definition of the semantics of positions.

Clients may implement this interface or use the standard implementation DefaultPositionUpdater.
