how to register a universal editor onlick listener


I want to register an onclick listener for all text-editor tab in the coding area. More specifically, I want to register an onclick listener for all the current editor tabs and those which are open later.

Right now I am register the listener via

//In an action
final Editor editor = anActionEvent.getRequiredData(CommonDataKeys.EDITOR);

But this api will only add the listener for the editor-tabs that have already been open.

In this post,


has been deprecated.

Thx in advance!


>FileEditorManagerAdapter has been deprecated.
It was deprecated because FileEditorManagerListener was migrated to JDK8 and now uses default method implementations (so this adapter is no longer needed).

Also, you can take a look at `com.intellij.openapi.editor.EditorFactory#getAllEditors` and `com.intellij.openapi.editor.event.EditorFactoryListener`.
It'll allow you to track all other editors in IDE (ex: created to show some preview in toolwindow, as an input field in a dialog, etc).


Also, there are `com.intellij.openapi.editor.event.EditorEventMulticaster` and `com.intellij.openapi.editor.EditorFactory#getEventMulticaster`.
Probably, it will be better than manually tracking all opened editors.


Thx Aleksey, com.intellij.openapi.editor.event.EditorEventMulticaster makes my life much easier.
