BrowseEIPManagerClass - Functional Organization - Expected Use  

Top  Previous  Next

As an aid to understanding the EIPManagerClass, it is useful to organize its methods into two large categories according to their expected use--the primary interface and the virtual methods. This organization reflects what we believe is typical use of the EIPManagerClass methods.

Non-Virtual Methods

The Non-Virtual Methods, which you are likely to call fairly routinely from your program, can be further divided into three categories:

Housekeeping (one-time) Use:

 

Init

initialize the BrowseEditClass object

 

Kill

shut down the BrowseEditClass object

Mainstream Use:

 

TakeNewSelection

handle Event:NewSelections

Occasional Use:

 

ClearColumn

reset column property values

 

TakeCompleted

process completion of edit

All methods listed above are also Derived

Derived Methods

Typically you will not call these methods directly--the Non-Virtual Methods call them. However, we anticipate you will often want to override these methods, and because they are derived, they are very easy to override. These methods do provide reasonable default behavior in case you do not want to override them.

 

Init

Kill

TakeNewSelection

handle Event:NewSelections

 

ClearColumn

TakeCompleted
