Detailed Description

provides information about a dynamic element that can be inserted into a homogeneous set of elements within a hierarchy.

Provides information about the element. Provides access to its containing set object. Allows controlling the lifetime of the element.

Set elements may be added to and removed from the hierarchy at runtime. They bear user-defined names. They may exist independently, outside any container.

New set element instances generally are created through members of com::sun::star::lang::XSingleServiceFactory or, if supported, com::sun::star::lang::XMultiServiceFactory on an implementation of SetUpdate. Initially, they are not contained in a set object and have no meaningful name.

While an instance is not contained in a set object, it is owned by the client and can be disposed by calling com::sun::star::lang::XComponent::dispose(). The name of the object can freely be changed in that situation though without persistent effect.

When the instance is inserted into a set (this includes replacing an existing element), ownership is transferred to the container. While it is contained in the container, clients must not dispose the object. When inserted, the name of the object is fixed and is used to identify it within the container. An implementation may support com::sun::star::container::XNamed::setName() even in this case. If it does, changing the name has the same effect of removing the object (under the old name) and then reinserting it into the same container (using the new name).

When an instance is removed from a set (this includes being replaced by a new element), ownership is transferred to the client again. It can then be disposed or reinserted into a container. An instance can only be inserted into a container, if it was obtained from the same hierarchy.

When a set element is removed from its set from outside the hierarchy, the container disposes of the object. This occurrence can be detected by registering a com::sun::star::lang::XEventListener with the object.

If an implementation is part of a read-only view of the hierarchy, changing the name or parent is not supported (the object can't be removed from its container anyway).

Exported Interfaces

is the basic service for accessing information about an element in the hierarchy.

Exported Interfaces

provides information about the type of the element.

Set elements have a predetermined structure (their type), that is described by and can be generated from a template.

If the object was created using interface com::sun::star::lang::XSingleServiceFactory on an implementation of SetUpdate, this interface describes the same template as interface XTemplateContainer on that SetUpdate.

If the object was created using interface com::sun::star::lang::XMultiServiceFactory on an implementation of SetUpdate, this interface describes the template whose name was used as a service identifier for the factory method.

Otherwise, the semantics of the information provided about the template depends on the implementation.

See also
com::sun::star::configuration::XTemplateContainer

provides access to the containing set object.

In this service, this interface is mandatory

com::sun::star::container::XChild::getParent() returns NULL, if the object is currently not contained in a container.

An implementation may also support com::sun::star::container::XChild::setParent(). If it does, changing the parent has the effect of first removing the object from its old parent (if any) and then inserting it into the new parent (unless that is NULL) under the same name. The new parent must be part of the same hierarchy as the old one. The name of the object must have been set before.

allows controlling or observing the lifetime of the object.

Clients may dispose of the object using com::sun::star::lang::XComponent::dispose(), only if the object is currently not contained in a container ( com::sun::star::container::XChild::getParent() returns NULL).

Clients may register an com::sun::star::lang::XEventListener to be notified, if the object is removed from its container by an outside source.
