Interface SectionManager

  • All Superinterfaces:
    Manager<Section>, PropertyChangeProvider, SilenceablePropertyChangeProvider, VetoableChangeProvider
    All Known Implementing Classes:

    public interface SectionManager
    extends Manager<Section>
    Basic Implementation of a SectionManager.

    This doesn't have a "new" interface, since Sections are independently implemented, instead of being system-specific.

    Note that Section system names must begin with system prefix and type character, usually IY, and be followed by a string, usually, but not always, a number. This is enforced when a Section is created.
