Re: [platform-debug-dev] Programmatically adding memory monitor and rendering

Hi Derek -

1.  To customize the rendering label:
>From your memory block, provide an ILabelDecorator adapter.  (i.e. return
an ILabelDecorator when #getAdapter(adapter) is called.)  You label
decorator will be called when the rendering tries to construct the label.
You will be given the original label and the rendering when
ILabelDecorator#decorateText(...) is called.

2.  To customize the labels from the tree view pane, you need to provide
your own label adapter to your memory block.  From your memory block,
override the #getAdapter() method and return an IAsynchronousLabelAdapter
when needed.  The label adapter will be called whenever the memory block's
label is needed from the Memory View. For an example implementation of the
label adapter, look at MemoryBlockLabelAdapter.  (Please note that there
are other ways of providing adapters to your debug elements.  You may want
to look at the tutorial form EclipseCon to figure out which way is best for
you.)

Samantha,

Thanks - that works. Now some more questions:

1. I am using the standard memory viewer with my custom rendering. Is it
possible to override the text in the rendering tab? It currently says
address :
address <render_name>. I see it gets the text from a decorator, but can't
see
how to provide my own.

2. It appears that the text for the memory monitors is the expression used
to
create the monitor (in my case a memory address). Is it possible to
override so
that I can provide more descriptive text to my user? For example, the
memory
location (which I add programmatically) has an address (0x12345678) and a
name
(such as "Video memory"). I would like "Video memory" to be displayed.
