Package Summary  Overview Summary

class:StyleContext [NONE]

All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable, AbstractDocument.AttributeContext
Direct Known Subclasses:
StyleSheet

public class StyleContext
extends Object
implements Serializable, AbstractDocument.AttributeContext
A pool of styles and their associated resources. This class determines the lifetime of a group of resources by being a container that holds caches for various resources such as font and color that get reused by the various style definitions. This can be shared by multiple documents if desired to maximize the sharing of related resources.

This class also provides efficient support for small sets of attributes and compresses them by sharing across uses and taking advantage of their immutable nature. Since many styles are replicated, the potential for sharing is significant, and copies can be extremely cheap. Larger sets reduce the possibility of sharing, and therefore revert automatically to a less space-efficient implementation.

Warning: Serialized objects of this class will not be compatible with future Swing releases. The current serialization support is appropriate for short term storage or RMI between applications running the same version of Swing. As of 1.4, support for long term storage of all JavaBeans has been added to the java.beans package. Please see XMLEncoder.

field:DEFAULT_STYLE [NONE]

  • DEFAULT_STYLE

    public static final  String DEFAULT_STYLE
    The name given to the default logical style attached to paragraphs.

    Constant Field Values

constructor:StyleContext() [NONE]

  • StyleContext

    public StyleContext()
    Creates a new StyleContext object.

method:getDefaultStyleContext() [NONE]

  • getDefaultStyleContext

    public static final  StyleContext getDefaultStyleContext()
    Returns default AttributeContext shared by all documents that don't bother to define/supply their own context.

  • method:addStyle(java.lang.String,javax.swing.text.Style) [NONE]

    addStyle

    public Style addStyle?(String nm, Style parent)
    Adds a new style into the style hierarchy. Style attributes resolve from bottom up so an attribute specified in a child will override an attribute specified in the parent.
    Parameters:
    nm - the name of the style (must be unique within the collection of named styles in the document). The name may be null if the style is unnamed, but the caller is responsible for managing the reference returned as an unnamed style can't be fetched by name. An unnamed style may be useful for things like character attribute overrides such as found in a style run.
    parent - the parent style. This may be null if unspecified attributes need not be resolved in some other style.
    Returns:
    the created style

    method:removeStyle(java.lang.String) [NONE]

    removeStyle

    public void removeStyle?(String nm)

    Parameters:
    attr - the set of attributes
    Returns:
    the color

    method:getBackground(javax.swing.text.AttributeSet) [NONE]

    getBackground

    public Color getBackground?(AttributeSet attr)
    Takes a set of attributes and turn it into a background color specification. This might be used to specify things like brighter, more hue, etc. By default it simply returns the value specified by the StyleConstants.Background attribute.

    IOException - on any I/O error

    method:readAttributes(java.io.ObjectInputStream,javax.swing.text.MutableAttributeSet) [NONE]

    readAttributes

    public void readAttributes?(ObjectInputStream in, MutableAttributeSet a) throws ClassNotFoundException, IOException
    Context-specific handling of reading in attributes
    Parameters:
    in - the object stream to read the attribute data from.
    a - the attribute set to place the attribute definitions in.
    Throws:
    ClassNotFoundException - passed upward if encountered when reading the object stream.
    IOException - passed upward if encountered when reading the object stream.

    method:writeAttributeSet(java.io.ObjectOutputStream,javax.swing.text.AttributeSet) [NONE]

    writeAttributeSet

    public static  void writeAttributeSet?(ObjectOutputStream out, AttributeSet a) throws IOException
    Writes a set of attributes to the given object stream for the purpose of serialization. This will take special care to deal with static attribute keys that have been registered wit the registerStaticAttributeKey method. Any attribute key not registered as a static key will be serialized directly. All values are expected to be serializable.
    Parameters:
    out - the output stream
    a - the attribute set
    Throws:
    IOException - on any I/O error

    method:readAttributeSet(java.io.ObjectInputStream,javax.swing.text.MutableAttributeSet) [NONE]

    readAttributeSet

    public static  void readAttributeSet?(ObjectInputStream in, MutableAttributeSet a) throws ClassNotFoundException, IOException
    Reads a set of attributes from the given object input stream that have been previously written out with writeAttributeSet. This will try to restore keys that were static objects to the static objects in the current virtual machine considering only those keys that have been registered with the registerStaticAttributeKey method. The attributes retrieved from the stream will be placed into the given mutable set.
    Parameters:
    in - the object stream to read the attribute data from.
    a - the attribute set to place the attribute definitions in.
    Throws:
    ClassNotFoundException - passed upward if encountered when reading the object stream.
    IOException - passed upward if encountered when reading the object stream.

    method:registerStaticAttributeKey(java.lang.Object) [NONE]

    registerStaticAttributeKey

    public static  void registerStaticAttributeKey?(Object key)
    Registers an object as a static object that is being used as a key in attribute sets. This allows the key to be treated specially for serialization.

    For operation under a 1.1 virtual machine, this uses the value returned by toString concatenated to the classname. The value returned by toString should not have the class reference in it (ie it should be reimplemented from the definition in Object) in order to be the same when recomputed later.

    Parameters:
    key - the non-null object key

    method:getStaticAttribute(java.lang.Object) [NONE]

    getStaticAttribute

    public static  Object getStaticAttribute?(Object key)
    Returns the object previously registered with registerStaticAttributeKey.
    Parameters:
    key - the object key
    Returns:
    Returns the object previously registered with registerStaticAttributeKey

    method:getStaticAttributeKey(java.lang.Object) [NONE]

    getStaticAttributeKey

    public static  Object getStaticAttributeKey?(Object key)
    Returns the String that key will be registered with.
    Parameters:
    key - the object key
    Returns:
    the String that key will be registered with
    See Also:
    getStaticAttribute(java.lang.Object), registerStaticAttributeKey(java.lang.Object)
