IssueCollection

An IssueCollection object coordinates a group of results from a diagnostic pass within a file or workspace, represented using Issue objects. IssueCollection objects conform to the Disposable interface.

The IssueCollection class is not subclassable.

class MyLinterClass() {
    constructor() {
        this.issueCollection = new IssueCollection();
    }
    
    deliverResults(fileURI, issues) {
        this.issueCollection.set(fileURI, issues);
    }
}
