Class SessionAboutToBeSavedEvent

All Implemented Interfaces:

public final class SessionAboutToBeSavedEvent extends AbstractCyEvent<CySessionManager>
This event is fired synchronously by the CySessionManager at beginning of the CySessionManager.getCurrentSession() method. The intent is to allow listeners to provide information to this event object or to update their state before that state is interrogated by the CySessionManager.

Cytoscape Backwards Compatibility (Final Class): This class is final and therefore can't be extended by users. This means that we may add methods for minor version updates. Methods will only be removed for major version updates.
