public class BoxView
extends CompositeView
A view that arranges its children into a box shape by tiling its children along an axis. The box is somewhat like that found in TeX where there is alignment of the children, flexibility of the children is considered, etc. This is a building block that might be useful to represent things like a collection of lines, paragraphs, lists, columns, pages, etc. The axis along which the children are tiled is considered the major axis. The orthogonal axis is the minor axis.

Layout for each axis is handled separately by the methods layoutMajorAxis and layoutMinorAxis. Subclasses can change the layout algorithm by reimplementing these methods. These methods will be called as necessary depending upon whether or not there is cached layout information and the cache is considered valid. These methods are typically called if the given size along the axis changes, or if layoutChanged is called to force an updated layout. The layoutChanged method invalidates cached layout information, if there is any. The requirements published to the parent view are calculated by the methods calculateMajorAxisRequirements and calculateMinorAxisRequirements. If the layout algorithm is changed, these methods will likely need to be reimplemented.

constructor:BoxView(javax.swing.text.Element,int) [NONE]

  • BoxView

    public BoxView?(Element elem, int axis)
    Constructs a BoxView.
    Parameters:
    elem - the element this view is responsible for
    axis - either View.X_AXIS or View.Y_AXIS

method:getAxis() [NONE]

  • getAxis

    public int getAxis()
    Fetches the tile axis property. This is the axis along which the child views are tiled.
    Returns:
    the major axis of the box, either View.X_AXIS or View.Y_AXIS
    Since:
    1.3
  • method:setAxis(int) [NONE]

    setAxis

    public void setAxis?(int axis)
    Sets the tile axis property. This is the axis along which the child views are tiled.
    Parameters:
    axis - either View.X_AXIS or View.Y_AXIS
    Since:
    1.3

    method:layoutChanged(int) [NONE]

    layoutChanged

    public void layoutChanged?(int axis)
    Invalidates the layout along an axis. This happens automatically if the preferences have changed for any of the child views. In some cases the layout may need to be recalculated when the preferences have not changed. The layout can be marked as invalid by calling this method. The layout will be updated the next time the setSize method is called on this view (typically in paint).
    Parameters:
    axis - either View.X_AXIS or View.Y_AXIS
    Since:
    1.3

    method:isLayoutValid(int) [NONE]

    isLayoutValid

    protected boolean isLayoutValid?(int axis)
    Determines if the layout is valid along the given axis.
    Parameters:
    axis - either View.X_AXIS or View.Y_AXIS
    Returns:
    if the layout is valid along the given axis
    Since:
    1.4

    method:paintChild(java.awt.Graphics,java.awt.Rectangle,int) [NONE]

    paintChild

    protected void paintChild?(Graphics g, Rectangle alloc, int index)
    Paints a child. By default that is all it does, but a subclass can use this to paint things relative to the child.
    Parameters:
    g - the graphics context
    alloc - the allocated region to paint into
    index - the child index, >= 0 && < getViewCount()

    method:replace(int,int,javax.swing.text.View[]) [NONE]

    replace

    public void replace?(int index, int length, View[] elems)
    Invalidates the layout and resizes the cache of requests/allocations. The child allocations can still be accessed for the old layout, but the new children will have an offset and span of 0.
    Overrides:
    replace in class CompositeView
    Parameters:
    index - the starting index into the child views to insert the new views; this should be a value >= 0 and <= getViewCount
    length - the number of existing child views to remove; This should be a value >= 0 and <= (getViewCount() - offset)
    elems - the child views to add; this value can be nullto indicate no children are being added (useful to remove)

    protected void forwardUpdate?(DocumentEvent.ElementChange ec, DocumentEvent e, Shape a, ViewFactory f)
    Forwards the given DocumentEvent to the child views that need to be notified of the change to the model. If a child changed its requirements and the allocation was valid prior to forwarding the portion of the box from the starting child to the end of the box will be repainted.
    Overrides:
    forwardUpdate in class View
    Parameters:
    ec - changes to the element this view is responsible for (may be null if there were no changes)
    e - the change information from the associated document

    preferenceChanged

    public void preferenceChanged?(View child, boolean width, boolean height)
    This is called by a child to indicate its preferred span has changed. This is implemented to throw away cached layout information so that new calculations will be done the next time the children need an allocation.

    method:flipEastAndWestAtEnds(int,javax.swing.text.Position.Bias) [NONE]

    flipEastAndWestAtEnds

    protected boolean flipEastAndWestAtEnds?(int position, Position.Bias bias)
    Determines in which direction the next view lays. Consider the View at index n. Typically the Views are layed out from left to right, so that the View to the EAST will be at index n + 1, and the View to the WEST will be at index n - 1. In certain situations, such as with bidirectional text, it is possible that the View to EAST is not at index n + 1, but rather at index n - 1, or that the View to the WEST is not at index n - 1, but index n + 1. In this case this method would return true, indicating the Views are layed out in descending order. Otherwise the method would return false indicating the Views are layed out in ascending order.

    If the receiver is laying its Views along the Y_AXIS, this will return the value from invoking the same method on the View responsible for rendering position and bias. Otherwise this will return false.

    Overrides:
    flipEastAndWestAtEnds in class CompositeView
    Parameters:
    position - position into the model
    bias - either Position.Bias.Forward or Position.Bias.Backward
    Returns:
    true if the Views surrounding the View responding for rendering position and bias are layed out in descending order; otherwise false
