    • getViewFactory

      public ViewFactory getViewFactory()
      Fetches a factory that is suitable for producing views of any models that are produced by this kit. This is implemented to return View implementations for the following kinds of elements:

      • AbstractDocument.ParagraphElementName
      • AbstractDocument.SectionElementName
      • StyleConstants.ComponentElementName

    • createInputAttributes

      protected void createInputAttributes(Element element, MutableAttributeSet set)
      Copies the key/values in elements AttributeSet into set. This does not copy component, icon, or element names attributes. Subclasses may wish to refine what is and what isn't copied here. But be sure to first remove all the attributes that are in set.

      This is called anytime the caret moves over a different location.
