Examples

Here an example of a simple view button, that has nothing to do with an outline:

@Order(30.0)
public class DrawLineViewButton extends AbstractViewButton {
 
  @Override
  protected String getConfiguredIconId() {
    return Icons.Pen;
  }
 
  @Override
  protected String getConfiguredText() {
    return TEXTS.get("DrawLine");
  }
 
  @Override
  protected void execAction() throws ProcessingException {
    MessageBox.showOkMessage(TEXTS.get("DrawLineTitle"), TEXTS.get("DrawLineInfo"), null);
    setSelected(false);
  }
}

Here an example of a outline view button:

@Order(10.0)
public class StandardOutlineViewButton extends AbstractOutlineViewButton {
  public StandardOutlineViewButton() {
    super(Desktop.this, StandardOutline.class);
  }
 
  @Override
  protected String getConfiguredText() {
    return TEXTS.get("Standard");
  }
}
