Class Container

    • Constructor Detail

      • Container

        public Container()
        Constructs a new Container. Containers can be extended directly, but are lightweight in this case and must be contained by a parent somewhere higher up in the component tree that is native. (such as Frame for example).

      • getComponentCount

        public int getComponentCount()
        Gets the number of components in this panel.

        Note: This method should be called under AWT tree lock.

        Returns:
        the number of components in this panel.

      • countComponents

        @Deprecated
        public int countComponents()
        Deprecated. As of JDK version 1.1, replaced by getComponentCount().
      • getComponent

        public Component getComponent(int n)
        Gets the nth component in this container.

        Note: This method should be called under AWT tree lock.

        Parameters:
        n - the index of the component to get.
        Returns:
        the nth component in this container.
        Throws:
        ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException - if the nth value does not exist.

      • getComponents

        public Component[] getComponents()
        Gets all the components in this container.

        Note: This method should be called under AWT tree lock.

        Returns:
        an array of all the components in this container.

      • getInsets

        public Insets getInsets()
        Determines the insets of this container, which indicate the size of the container's border.

        A Frame object, for example, has a top inset that corresponds to the height of the frame's title bar.

        Returns:
        the insets of this container.

        @Deprecated
        public Insets insets()
        Deprecated. As of JDK version 1.1, replaced by getInsets().
      • setComponentZOrder

        public void setComponentZOrder(Component comp,
                              int index)
        Moves the specified component to the specified z-order index in the container. The z-order determines the order that components are painted; the component with the highest z-order paints first and the component with the lowest z-order paints last. Where components overlap, the component with the lower z-order paints over the component with the higher z-order.

        If the component is a child of some other container, it is removed from that container before being added to this container. The important difference between this method and java.awt.Container.add(Component, int) is that this method doesn't call removeNotify on the component while removing it from its previous container unless necessary and when allowed by the underlying native windowing system. This way, if the component has the keyboard focus, it maintains the focus when moved to the new position.

        This property is guaranteed to apply only to lightweight non-Container components.

        This method changes layout-related information, and therefore, invalidates the component hierarchy.

        Note: Not all platforms support changing the z-order of heavyweight components from one container into another without the call to removeNotify. There is no way to detect whether a platform supports this, so developers shouldn't make any assumptions.

        Parameters:
        comp - the component to be moved
        index - the position in the container's list to insert the component, where getComponentCount() appends to the end
        Throws:
        NullPointerException - if comp is null
        IllegalArgumentException - if comp is one of the container's parents
        IllegalArgumentException - if index is not in the range [0, getComponentCount()] for moving between containers, or not in the range [0, getComponentCount()-1] for moving inside a container
        IllegalArgumentException - if adding a container to itself
        IllegalArgumentException - if adding a Window to a container

      • getComponentZOrder

        public int getComponentZOrder(Component comp)
        Returns the z-order index of the component inside the container. The higher a component is in the z-order hierarchy, the lower its index. The component with the lowest z-order index is painted last, above all other child components.
        Parameters:
        comp - the component being queried
        Returns:
        the z-order index of the component; otherwise returns -1 if the component is null or doesn't belong to the container

      • addImpl

        protected void addImpl(Component comp,
                   Object constraints,
                   int index)
        Adds the specified component to this container at the specified index. This method also notifies the layout manager to add the component to this container's layout using the specified constraints object via the addLayoutComponent method.

        The constraints are defined by the particular layout manager being used. For example, the BorderLayout class defines five constraints: BorderLayout.NORTH, BorderLayout.SOUTH, BorderLayout.EAST, BorderLayout.WEST, and BorderLayout.CENTER.

        The GridBagLayout class requires a GridBagConstraints object. Failure to pass the correct type of constraints object results in an IllegalArgumentException.

        If the current layout manager implements LayoutManager2, then LayoutManager2.addLayoutComponent(Component,Object) is invoked on it. If the current layout manager does not implement LayoutManager2, and constraints is a String, then LayoutManager.addLayoutComponent(String,Component) is invoked on it.

        If the component is not an ancestor of this container and has a non-null parent, it is removed from its current parent before it is added to this container.

        This is the method to override if a program needs to track every add request to a container as all other add methods defer to this one. An overriding method should usually include a call to the superclass's version of the method:

        super.addImpl(comp, constraints, index)

        This method changes layout-related information, and therefore, invalidates the component hierarchy. If the container has already been displayed, the hierarchy must be validated thereafter in order to display the added component.

        Parameters:
        comp - the component to be added
        constraints - an object expressing layout constraints for this component
        index - the position in the container's list at which to insert the component, where -1 means append to the end
        Throws:
        IllegalArgumentException - if index is invalid; if comp is a child of this container, the valid range is [-1, getComponentCount()-1]; if component is not a child of this container, the valid range is [-1, getComponentCount()]
        IllegalArgumentException - if comp is an ancestor of this container
        IllegalArgumentException - if adding a window to a container
        NullPointerException - if comp is null

      • remove

        public void remove(int index)
        Removes the component, specified by index, from this container. This method also notifies the layout manager to remove the component from this container's layout via the removeLayoutComponent method.

        This method changes layout-related information, and therefore, invalidates the component hierarchy. If the container has already been displayed, the hierarchy must be validated thereafter in order to reflect the changes.

        Parameters:
        index - the index of the component to be removed
        Throws:
        ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException - if index is not in range [0, getComponentCount()-1]

      • remove

        public void remove(Component comp)
        Removes the specified component from this container. This method also notifies the layout manager to remove the component from this container's layout via the removeLayoutComponent method.

        This method changes layout-related information, and therefore, invalidates the component hierarchy. If the container has already been displayed, the hierarchy must be validated thereafter in order to reflect the changes.

        Parameters:

      • setLayout

        public void setLayout(LayoutManager mgr)
        Sets the layout manager for this container.

        This method changes layout-related information, and therefore, invalidates the component hierarchy.

        Parameters:
        mgr - the specified layout manager

      • layout

        @Deprecated
        public void layout()
        Deprecated. As of JDK version 1.1, replaced by doLayout().
        Overrides:
        layout in class Component
      • isValidateRoot

        public boolean isValidateRoot()
        Indicates if this container is a validate root.

        Layout-related changes, such as bounds of the validate root descendants, do not affect the layout of the validate root parent. This peculiarity enables the invalidate() method to stop invalidating the component hierarchy when the method encounters a validate root. However, to preserve backward compatibility this new optimized behavior is enabled only when the java.awt.smartInvalidate system property value is set to true.

        If a component hierarchy contains validate roots and the new optimized invalidate() behavior is enabled, the validate() method must be invoked on the validate root of a previously invalidated component to restore the validity of the hierarchy later. Otherwise, calling the validate() method on the top-level container (such as a Frame object) should be used to restore the validity of the component hierarchy.

        The Window class and the Applet class are the validate roots in AWT. Swing introduces more validate roots.

        Returns:
        whether this container is a validate root

      • validate

        public void validate()
        Validates this container and all of its subcomponents.

        Validating a container means laying out its subcomponents. Layout-related changes, such as setting the bounds of a component, or adding a component to the container, invalidate the container automatically. Note that the ancestors of the container may be invalidated also (see Component.invalidate() for details.) Therefore, to restore the validity of the hierarchy, the validate() method should be invoked on the top-most invalid container of the hierarchy.

        Validating the container may be a quite time-consuming operation. For performance reasons a developer may postpone the validation of the hierarchy till a set of layout-related operations completes, e.g. after adding all the children to the container.

        If this Container is not valid, this method invokes the validateTree method and marks this Container as valid. Otherwise, no action is performed.

        Overrides:
        validate in class Component

        add(java.awt.Component), invalidate(), isValidateRoot(), JComponent.revalidate(), validateTree()
      • validateTree

        protected void validateTree()
        Recursively descends the container tree and recomputes the layout for any subtrees marked as needing it (those marked as invalid). Synchronization should be provided by the method that calls this one: validate.

      • setFont

        public void setFont(Font f)
        Sets the font of this container.

        This method changes layout-related information, and therefore, invalidates the component hierarchy.

        Overrides:
        setFont in class Component
        Parameters:
        f - The font to become this container's font.

      • getAlignmentX

        public float getAlignmentX()
        Returns the alignment along the x axis. This specifies how the component would like to be aligned relative to other components. The value should be a number between 0 and 1 where 0 represents alignment along the origin, 1 is aligned the furthest away from the origin, 0.5 is centered, etc.
        Overrides:
        getAlignmentX in class Component
      • getAlignmentY

        public float getAlignmentY()
        Returns the alignment along the y axis. This specifies how the component would like to be aligned relative to other components. The value should be a number between 0 and 1 where 0 represents alignment along the origin, 1 is aligned the furthest away from the origin, 0.5 is centered, etc.
        Overrides:

      • paint

        public void paint(Graphics g)
        Paints the container. This forwards the paint to any lightweight components that are children of this container. If this method is reimplemented, super.paint(g) should be called so that lightweight components are properly rendered. If a child component is entirely clipped by the current clipping setting in g, paint() will not be forwarded to that child.
        Overrides:
        paint in class Component
        Parameters:
        g - the specified Graphics window
        See Also:

      • update

        public void update(Graphics g)
        Updates the container. This forwards the update to any lightweight components that are children of this container. If this method is reimplemented, super.update(g) should be called so that lightweight components are properly rendered. If a child component is entirely clipped by the current clipping setting in g, update() will not be forwarded to that child.
        Overrides:

        public void print(Graphics g)
        Prints the container. This forwards the print to any lightweight components that are children of this container. If this method is reimplemented, super.print(g) should be called so that lightweight components are properly rendered. If a child component is entirely clipped by the current clipping setting in g, print() will not be forwarded to that child.

      • getListeners

        public <T extends EventListener> T[] getListeners(Class<T> listenerType)
        Returns an array of all the objects currently registered as FooListeners upon this Container. FooListeners are registered using the addFooListener method.

        You can specify the listenerType argument with a class literal, such as FooListener.class. For example, you can query a Container c for its container listeners with the following code:

        ContainerListener[] cls = (ContainerListener[])(c.getListeners(ContainerListener.class));
        If no such listeners exist, this method returns an empty array.
        Overrides:
        getListeners in class Component
        Parameters:
        listenerType - the type of listeners requested; this parameter should specify an interface that descends from java.util.EventListener
        Returns:
        an array of all objects registered as FooListeners on this container, or an empty array if no such listeners have been added
        Throws:
        ClassCastException - if listenerType doesn't specify a class or interface that implements java.util.EventListener
        NullPointerException - if listenerType is null

      • processContainerEvent

        protected void processContainerEvent(ContainerEvent e)
        Processes container events occurring on this container by dispatching them to any registered ContainerListener objects. NOTE: This method will not be called unless container events are enabled for this component; this happens when one of the following occurs:
        • A ContainerListener object is registered via addContainerListener
        • Container events are enabled via enableEvents

        Note that if the event parameter is null the behavior is unspecified and may result in an exception.

        Parameters:
        e - the container event

        public Component getComponentAt(int x,
                               int y)
        Locates the component that contains the x,y position. The top-most child component is returned in the case where there is overlap in the components. This is determined by finding the component closest to the index 0 that claims to contain the given point via Component.contains(), except that Components which have native peers take precedence over those which do not (i.e., lightweight Components).
        Overrides:
        getComponentAt in class Component
        Parameters:
        x - the x coordinate
        y - the y coordinate
        Returns:
        null if the component does not contain the position. If there is no child component at the requested point and the point is within the bounds of the container the container itself is returned; otherwise the top-most child is returned.

        public Point getMousePosition(boolean allowChildren)

        Returns the position of the mouse pointer in this Container's coordinate space if the Container is under the mouse pointer, otherwise returns null. This method is similar to Component.getMousePosition() with the exception that it can take the Container's children into account. If allowChildren is false, this method will return a non-null value only if the mouse pointer is above the Container directly, not above the part obscured by children. If allowChildren is true, this method returns a non-null value if the mouse pointer is above Container or any of its descendants.
        Parameters:
        allowChildren - true if children should be taken into account
        Returns:
        mouse coordinates relative to this Component, or null

        Locates the visible child component that contains the specified position. The top-most child component is returned in the case where there is overlap in the components. If the containing child component is a Container, this method will continue searching for the deepest nested child component. Components which are not visible are ignored during the search.

        The findComponentAt method is different from getComponentAt in that getComponentAt only searches the Container's immediate children; if the containing component is a Container, findComponentAt will search that child to find a nested component.

        Parameters:
        x - the x coordinate
        y - the y coordinate
        Returns:
        null if the component does not contain the position. If there is no child component at the requested point and the point is within the bounds of the container the container itself is returned.

        The immediate children of the container are printed with an indentation of indent+1. The children of those children are printed at indent+2 and so on.

        Overrides:

        Parameters:
        out - a print writer
        indent - the number of spaces to indent
        Throws:
        NullPointerException - if out is null

      • setFocusTraversalKeys

        public void setFocusTraversalKeys(int id,
                                 Set<? extends AWTKeyStroke> keystrokes)
        Sets the focus traversal keys for a given traversal operation for this Container.

        The default values for a Container's focus traversal keys are implementation-dependent. Sun recommends that all implementations for a particular native platform use the same default values. The recommendations for Windows and Unix are listed below. These recommendations are used in the Sun AWT implementations.
        Identifier Meaning Default
        KeyboardFocusManager.FORWARD_TRAVERSAL_KEYS Normal forward keyboard traversal TAB on KEY_PRESSED, CTRL-TAB on KEY_PRESSED
        KeyboardFocusManager.BACKWARD_TRAVERSAL_KEYS Normal reverse keyboard traversal SHIFT-TAB on KEY_PRESSED, CTRL-SHIFT-TAB on KEY_PRESSED
        KeyboardFocusManager.UP_CYCLE_TRAVERSAL_KEYS Go up one focus traversal cycle none
        KeyboardFocusManager.DOWN_CYCLE_TRAVERSAL_KEYS Go down one focus traversal cycle none

          

        To disable a traversal key, use an empty Set; Collections.EMPTY_SET is recommended.

        Using the AWTKeyStroke API, client code can specify on which of two specific KeyEvents, KEY_PRESSED or KEY_RELEASED, the focus traversal operation will occur. Regardless of which KeyEvent is specified, however, all KeyEvents related to the focus traversal key, including the associated KEY_TYPED event, will be consumed, and will not be dispatched to any Container. It is a runtime error to specify a KEY_TYPED event as mapping to a focus traversal operation, or to map the same event to multiple default focus traversal operations.

        If a value of null is specified for the Set, this Container inherits the Set from its parent. If all ancestors of this Container have null specified for the Set, then the current KeyboardFocusManager's default Set is used.

        Overrides:
        setFocusTraversalKeys in class Component
        Parameters:
        id - one of KeyboardFocusManager.FORWARD_TRAVERSAL_KEYS, KeyboardFocusManager.BACKWARD_TRAVERSAL_KEYS, KeyboardFocusManager.UP_CYCLE_TRAVERSAL_KEYS, or KeyboardFocusManager.DOWN_CYCLE_TRAVERSAL_KEYS
        keystrokes - the Set of AWTKeyStroke for the specified operation
        Throws:
        IllegalArgumentException - if id is not one of KeyboardFocusManager.FORWARD_TRAVERSAL_KEYS, KeyboardFocusManager.BACKWARD_TRAVERSAL_KEYS, KeyboardFocusManager.UP_CYCLE_TRAVERSAL_KEYS, or KeyboardFocusManager.DOWN_CYCLE_TRAVERSAL_KEYS, or if keystrokes contains null, or if any Object in keystrokes is not an AWTKeyStroke, or if any keystroke represents a KEY_TYPED event, or if any keystroke already maps to another focus traversal operation for this Container

      • areFocusTraversalKeysSet

        public boolean areFocusTraversalKeysSet(int id)
        Returns whether the Set of focus traversal keys for the given focus traversal operation has been explicitly defined for this Container. If this method returns false, this Container is inheriting the Set from an ancestor, or from the current KeyboardFocusManager.
        Overrides:

        Returns:
        true if the the Set of focus traversal keys for the given focus traversal operation has been explicitly defined for this Component; false otherwise.

      • isFocusCycleRoot

        public boolean isFocusCycleRoot(Container container)
        Returns whether the specified Container is the focus cycle root of this Container's focus traversal cycle. Each focus traversal cycle has only a single focus cycle root and each Container which is not a focus cycle root belongs to only a single focus traversal cycle. Containers which are focus cycle roots belong to two cycles: one rooted at the Container itself, and one rooted at the Container's nearest focus-cycle-root ancestor. This method will return true for both such Containers in this case.
        Overrides:
        isFocusCycleRoot in class Component
        Parameters:
        container - the Container to be tested
        Returns:
        true if the specified Container is a focus-cycle- root of this Container; false otherwise

      • setFocusTraversalPolicy

        public void setFocusTraversalPolicy(FocusTraversalPolicy policy)
        Sets the focus traversal policy that will manage keyboard traversal of this Container's children, if this Container is a focus cycle root. If the argument is null, this Container inherits its policy from its focus- cycle-root ancestor. If the argument is non-null, this policy will be inherited by all focus-cycle-root children that have no keyboard- traversal policy of their own (as will, recursively, their focus-cycle- root children).

        If this Container is not a focus cycle root, the policy will be remembered, but will not be used or inherited by this or any other Containers until this Container is made a focus cycle root.

        Parameters:
        policy - the new focus traversal policy for this Container

        public boolean isFocusTraversalPolicySet()
        Returns whether the focus traversal policy has been explicitly set for this Container. If this method returns false, this Container will inherit its focus traversal policy from an ancestor.
        Returns:
        true if the focus traversal policy has been explicitly set for this Container; false otherwise.

      • setFocusCycleRoot

        public void setFocusCycleRoot(boolean focusCycleRoot)
        Sets whether this Container is the root of a focus traversal cycle. Once focus enters a traversal cycle, typically it cannot leave it via focus traversal unless one of the up- or down-cycle keys is pressed. Normal traversal is limited to this Container, and all of this Container's descendants that are not descendants of inferior focus cycle roots. Note that a FocusTraversalPolicy may bend these restrictions, however. For example, ContainerOrderFocusTraversalPolicy supports implicit down-cycle traversal.

        The alternative way to specify the traversal order of this Container's children is to make this Container a focus traversal policy provider.

        Parameters:
        focusCycleRoot - indicates whether this Container is the root of a focus traversal cycle

        public void transferFocusDownCycle()
        Transfers the focus down one focus traversal cycle. If this Container is a focus cycle root, then the focus owner is set to this Container's default Component to focus, and the current focus cycle root is set to this Container. If this Container is not a focus cycle root, then no focus traversal operation occurs.

        public void addPropertyChangeListener(PropertyChangeListener listener)
        Adds a PropertyChangeListener to the listener list. The listener is registered for all bound properties of this class, including the following:
        • this Container's font ("font")
        • this Container's background color ("background")
        • this Container's foreground color ("foreground")

        • this Container's focus traversal policy ("focusTraversalPolicy")
        • this Container's focus-cycle-root state ("focusCycleRoot")
        Note that if this Container is inheriting a bound property, then no event will be fired in response to a change in the inherited property.
