- The drawing framework is responsible for managing the resources used by
the UI of the drawing applications.
The framework is implemented by a set of sub controllers that are
responsible for its different resources: XModuleController,
The set of active resources is represented by the XConfiguration.
interface provides access to the sub controllers. It typically is
implemented by the same class that implements the ::com::sun::star::frame::XController interface.
configuration is managed by the XConfigurationController.
It coordinates changes to the configuration made by the other sub
controllers so that
- unnecessary ui updates (flickering) is avoided and
- and the configuration is always in a valid and meaningfull
For more information please see the wiki page of the drawing framework.
||A configuration describes the resources of an application like panes,
views, and tool bars and their relationships that are currently active
or are requested to be activated. Resources are specified by ResourceId
structures rather than references so that not only the current
configuration but also a requested configuration can be represented.
||A listener for configuration changes is called when it has been
registered at the configuration controller and a configuration change
||A single explicit request for a configuration change.
||The configuration controller is responsible for the management of the
set of active resources.
||Manage the set of registered event listeners and the event notification for a configuration
||The request queue of the configuration controller handles requests for
changes to the current configuration.
||The XControllerManager gives access to the controllers of the drawing
||The module controller is responsible for loading a module (addon,
plugin, whatever the name) when it is first used.
||A pane is an abstraction of a window and is one of the resources managed
by the drawing framework.
||An extension of the XPane interface that adds support for
a) showing and hiding the windows that internally belong to the pane and
b) setting the accessibility object.
This is typically an optional interface.
||Paint the border around a rectangular region, typically a pane.
||An optional interface that is implemented by resources that are
relocatable to different anchors.
||Base interface that provides functionality shared by all resource types
of the drawing framework.
||Factory and possibly cache for creating and releasing resources.
||The XResourceFactoryManager is part of the configuration controller and
manages the set of registered resource factories.
||A resource id uses a set of URLs to unambiguously specify a resource of
the drawing framework.
||UI control for the selection of views in a pane.
||Abstraction of tool bars used by the drawing framework.
||A view in the drawing framework is any object that paints into a pane.
||Objects of this class are used for notifying changes of the
||Descriptor of a tab bar button. Tab bar buttons are typically used to
offer the user the choice between different views to be disiplayed in

||This enum specifies how a resource is bound to an anchor. This can be
direct or indirect.
||See XPaneBorderPainter and its addBorder() and removeBorder() methods
for an explanation of the border type and its values.
||The ResourceActivationMode specifies, for example for the XConfigurationController::requestResourceActivation(),
whether a requested resource is to replace an existing resource of the
same class or is to be activated additionally.
