    See Also:
    clone(), gridx

field:gridwidth [NONE]

  • gridwidth

    public int gridwidth
    Specifies the number of cells in a row for the component's display area.

    Use REMAINDER to specify that the component's display area will be from gridx to the last cell in the row. Use RELATIVE to specify that the component's display area will be from gridx to the next to the last one in its row.

    gridwidth should be non-negative and the default value is 1.

field:weightx [NONE]

  • weightx

    public double weightx
    Specifies how to distribute extra horizontal space.

    The grid bag layout manager calculates the weight of a column to be the maximum weightx of all the components in a column. If the resulting layout is smaller horizontally than the area it needs to fill, the extra space is distributed to each column in proportion to its weight. A column that has a weight of zero receives no extra space.

    If all the weights are zero, all the extra space appears between the grids of the cell and the left and right edges.

    The default value of this field is 0. weightx should be a non-negative value.

    See Also:
    clone(), weighty

field:weighty [NONE]

  • weighty

    public double weighty
    Specifies how to distribute extra vertical space.

    The grid bag layout manager calculates the weight of a row to be the maximum weighty of all the components in a row. If the resulting layout is smaller vertically than the area it needs to fill, the extra space is distributed to each row in proportion to its weight. A row that has a weight of zero receives no extra space.

    If all the weights are zero, all the extra space appears between the grids of the cell and the top and bottom edges.

    The default value of this field is 0. weighty should be a non-negative value.

    See Also:
    clone(), weightx

field:anchor [NONE]

  • anchor

    public int anchor
    This field is used when the component is smaller than its display area. It determines where, within the display area, to place the component.

    There are three kinds of possible values: orientation relative, baseline relative and absolute. Orientation relative values are interpreted relative to the container's component orientation property, baseline relative values are interpreted relative to the baseline and absolute values are not. The absolute values are: CENTER, NORTH, NORTHEAST, EAST, SOUTHEAST, SOUTH, SOUTHWEST, WEST, and NORTHWEST. The orientation relative values are: PAGE_START, PAGE_END, LINE_START, LINE_END, FIRST_LINE_START, FIRST_LINE_END, LAST_LINE_START and LAST_LINE_END. The baseline relative values are: BASELINE, BASELINE_LEADING, BASELINE_TRAILING, ABOVE_BASELINE, ABOVE_BASELINE_LEADING, ABOVE_BASELINE_TRAILING, BELOW_BASELINE, BELOW_BASELINE_LEADING, and BELOW_BASELINE_TRAILING. The default value is CENTER.

    clone(), ComponentOrientation

field:fill [NONE]

  • fill

    public int fill
    This field is used when the component's display area is larger than the component's requested size. It determines whether to resize the component, and if so, how.

    The following values are valid for fill:

    • NONE: Do not resize the component.
    • HORIZONTAL: Make the component wide enough to fill its display area horizontally, but do not change its height.
    • VERTICAL: Make the component tall enough to fill its display area vertically, but do not change its width.
    • BOTH: Make the component fill its display area entirely.

    The default value is NONE.
