Interface CytoPanelComponent2

All Superinterfaces:

public interface CytoPanelComponent2 extends CytoPanelComponent
Implement this interface rather than CytoPanelComponent, if you want to allow your component to be retrieved from the CytoPanel by its identifier. See CytoPanel.indexOfComponent(String).

Cytoscape Backwards Compatibility (SPI Interface): We expect that this interface will be implemented. Therefore to maintain backwards compatibility this interface will only be modified for major version updates.

Module: swing-application-api

To use this in your app, include the following dependency in your POM:

  • Method Details

    • getIdentifier

      String getIdentifier()
      Returns this component's identifier, which should be unique. To minimize the risk of returning an identifier that is also used by another app, you should add a prefix/namespace. As a suggestion, the prefix can be your app's name or your organization reverse domain. For example, return "com.myorganizationname.MyPanel" instead of just "MyPanel". The prefix "org.cytoscape." is reserved for modules and apps provided by the Cytoscape Consortium only and must not be used by third-party apps.
      The identifier of this component.
