class:InputMethodEvent [NONE]

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    Serializable


    public class InputMethodEvent
    extends AWTEvent
    
    Input method events contain information about text that is being composed using an input method. Whenever the text changes, the input method sends an event. If the text component that's currently using the input method is an active client, the event is dispatched to that component. Otherwise, it is dispatched to a separate composition window.

    The text included with the input method event consists of two parts: committed text and composed text. Either part may be empty. The two parts together replace any uncommitted composed text sent in previous events, or the currently selected committed text. Committed text should be integrated into the text component's persistent data, it will not be sent again. Composed text may be sent repeatedly, with changes to reflect the user's editing operations. Committed text always precedes composed text.

constructor:InputMethodEvent(java.awt.Component, int, long, java.text.AttributedCharacterIterator, int, java.awt.font.TextHitInfo, java.awt.font.TextHitInfo) [NONE]

  • InputMethodEvent

    public InputMethodEvent​(Component source,
                            int id,
                            long when,
                            AttributedCharacterIterator text,
                            int committedCharacterCount,
                            TextHitInfo caret,
                            TextHitInfo visiblePosition)
    Constructs an InputMethodEvent with the specified source component, type, time, text, caret, and visiblePosition.

    The offsets of caret and visiblePosition are relative to the current composed text; that is, the composed text within text if this is an INPUT_METHOD_TEXT_CHANGED event, the composed text within the text of the preceding INPUT_METHOD_TEXT_CHANGED event otherwise.

    Note that passing in an invalid id results in unspecified behavior. This method throws an IllegalArgumentException if source is null.

    Parameters:
    source - the object where the event originated
    id - the event type
    when - a long integer that specifies the time the event occurred
    text - the combined committed and composed text, committed text first; must be null when the event type is CARET_POSITION_CHANGED; may be null for INPUT_METHOD_TEXT_CHANGED if there's no committed or composed text
    committedCharacterCount - the number of committed characters in the text
    caret - the caret (a.k.a. insertion point); null if there's no caret within current composed text
    visiblePosition - the position that's most important to be visible; null if there's no recommendation for a visible position within current composed text
    Throws:
    IllegalArgumentException - if id is not in the range INPUT_METHOD_FIRST..INPUT_METHOD_LAST; or if id is CARET_POSITION_CHANGED and text is not null; or if committedCharacterCount is not in the range 0..(text.getEndIndex() - text.getBeginIndex())
    IllegalArgumentException - if source is null
    Since:
    1.4

constructor:InputMethodEvent(java.awt.Component, int, java.text.AttributedCharacterIterator, int, java.awt.font.TextHitInfo, java.awt.font.TextHitInfo) [NONE]

  • InputMethodEvent

    public InputMethodEvent​(Component source,
                            int id,
                            AttributedCharacterIterator text,
                            int committedCharacterCount,
                            TextHitInfo caret,
                            TextHitInfo visiblePosition)
    Constructs an InputMethodEvent with the specified source component, type, text, caret, and visiblePosition.

    The offsets of caret and visiblePosition are relative to the current composed text; that is, the composed text within text if this is an INPUT_METHOD_TEXT_CHANGED event, the composed text within the text of the preceding INPUT_METHOD_TEXT_CHANGED event otherwise. The time stamp for this event is initialized by invoking EventQueue.getMostRecentEventTime().

    Note that passing in an invalid id results in unspecified behavior. This method throws an IllegalArgumentException if source is null.

    Parameters:
    source - the object where the event originated
    id - the event type
    text - the combined committed and composed text, committed text first; must be null when the event type is CARET_POSITION_CHANGED; may be null for INPUT_METHOD_TEXT_CHANGED if there's no committed or composed text
    committedCharacterCount - the number of committed characters in the text
    caret - the caret (a.k.a. insertion point); null if there's no caret within current composed text
    visiblePosition - the position that's most important to be visible; null if there's no recommendation for a visible position within current composed text
    Throws:
    IllegalArgumentException - if id is not in the range INPUT_METHOD_FIRST..INPUT_METHOD_LAST; or if id is CARET_POSITION_CHANGED and text is not null; or if committedCharacterCount is not in the range 0..(text.getEndIndex() - text.getBeginIndex())
    IllegalArgumentException - if source is null

constructor:InputMethodEvent(java.awt.Component, int, java.awt.font.TextHitInfo, java.awt.font.TextHitInfo) [NONE]

  • InputMethodEvent

    public InputMethodEvent​(Component source,
                            int id,
                            TextHitInfo caret,
                            TextHitInfo visiblePosition)
    Constructs an InputMethodEvent with the specified source component, type, caret, and visiblePosition. The text is set to null, committedCharacterCount to 0.

    The offsets of caret and visiblePosition are relative to the current composed text; that is, the composed text within the text of the preceding INPUT_METHOD_TEXT_CHANGED event if the event being constructed as a CARET_POSITION_CHANGED event. For an INPUT_METHOD_TEXT_CHANGED event without text, caret and visiblePosition must be null. The time stamp for this event is initialized by invoking EventQueue.getMostRecentEventTime().

    Note that passing in an invalid id results in unspecified behavior. This method throws an IllegalArgumentException if source is null.

    Parameters:
    source - the object where the event originated
    id - the event type
    caret - the caret (a.k.a. insertion point); null if there's no caret within current composed text
    visiblePosition - the position that's most important to be visible; null if there's no recommendation for a visible position within current composed text
    Throws:
    IllegalArgumentException - if id is not in the range INPUT_METHOD_FIRST..INPUT_METHOD_LAST
    IllegalArgumentException - if source is null
