Class AWTEventMulticaster

java.lang.Object
  extended by java.awt.AWTEventMulticaster
All Implemented Interfaces:
ActionListener, AdjustmentListener, ComponentListener, ContainerListener, FocusListener, HierarchyBoundsListener, HierarchyListener, InputMethodListener, ItemListener, KeyListener, MouseListener, MouseMotionListener, MouseWheelListener, TextListener, WindowFocusListener, WindowListener, WindowStateListener, EventListener

public class AWTEventMulticaster
extends Object
implements ComponentListener, ContainerListener, FocusListener, KeyListener, MouseListener, MouseMotionListener, WindowListener, WindowFocusListener, WindowStateListener, ActionListener, ItemListener, AdjustmentListener, TextListener, InputMethodListener, HierarchyListener, HierarchyBoundsListener, MouseWheelListener

AWTEventMulticaster implements efficient and thread-safe multi-cast event dispatching for the AWT events defined in the java.awt.event package.

The following example illustrates how to use this class:


 public myComponent extends Component {
     ActionListener actionListener = null;

     public synchronized void addActionListener(ActionListener l) {
           actionListener = AWTEventMulticaster.add(actionListener, l);
     }
     public synchronized void removeActionListener(ActionListener l) {
           actionListener = AWTEventMulticaster.remove(actionListener, l);
     }
     public void processEvent(AWTEvent e) {
         // when event occurs which causes "action" semantic
         ActionListener listener = actionListener;
         if (listener != null) {
             listener.actionPerformed(new ActionEvent());
         }
     }
 }
 
The important point to note is the first argument to the add and remove methods is the field maintaining the listeners. In addition you must assign the result of the add and remove methods to the field maintaining the listeners.

AWTEventMulticaster is implemented as a pair of EventListeners that are set at construction time. AWTEventMulticaster is immutable. The add and remove methods do not alter AWTEventMulticaster in anyway. If necessary, a new AWTEventMulticaster is created. In this way it is safe to add and remove listeners during the process of an event dispatching. However, event listeners added during the process of an event dispatch operation are not notified of the event currently being dispatched.

All of the add methods allow null arguments. If the first argument is null, the second argument is returned. If the first argument is not null and the second argument is null, the first argument is returned. If both arguments are non-null, a new AWTEventMulticaster is created using the two arguments and returned.

For the remove methods that take two arguments, the following is returned:

Swing makes use of EventListenerList for similar logic. Refer to it for details.

Constructor Detail

AWTEventMulticaster

protected AWTEventMulticaster(EventListener a,
                              EventListener b)
Creates an event multicaster instance which chains listener-a with listener-b. Input parameters a and b should not be null, though implementations may vary in choosing whether or not to throw NullPointerException in that case.

Parameters:
a - listener-a
b - listener-b
Method Detail

remove

protected EventListener remove(EventListener oldl)
Removes a listener from this multicaster.

The returned multicaster contains all the listeners in this multicaster with the exception of all occurrences of oldl. If the resulting multicaster contains only one regular listener the regular listener may be returned. If the resulting multicaster is empty, then null may be returned instead.

No exception is thrown if oldl is null.

Parameters:
oldl - the listener to be removed
Returns:
resulting listener

Returns the resulting multicast listener from adding listener-a and listener-b together. If listener-a is null, it returns listener-b; If listener-b is null, it returns listener-a If neither are null, then it creates and returns a new AWTEventMulticaster instance which chains a with b.

                                              EventListener oldl)
Returns the resulting multicast listener after removing the old listener from listener-l. If listener-l equals the old listener OR listener-l is null, returns null. Else if listener-l is an instance of AWTEventMulticaster, then it removes the old listener from it. Else, returns listener l.

l - the listener being removed from
oldl - the listener being removed

getListeners

public static <T extends EventListener> T[] getListeners(EventListener l,
                                                         Class<T> listenerType)
Returns an array of all the objects chained as FooListeners by the specified java.util.EventListener. FooListeners are chained by the AWTEventMulticaster using the addFooListener method. If a null listener is specified, this method returns an empty array. If the specified listener is not an instance of AWTEventMulticaster, this method returns an array which contains only the specified listener. If no such listeners are chanined, this method returns an empty array.

Parameters:
l - the specified java.util.EventListener
listenerType - the type of listeners requested; this parameter should specify an interface that descends from java.util.EventListener
Returns:
an array of all objects chained as FooListeners by the specified multicast listener, or an empty array if no such listeners have been chained by the specified multicast listener
Throws:
NullPointerException - if the specified listenertype parameter is null
ClassCastException - if listenerType doesn't specify a class or interface that implements java.util.EventListener
Since:
1.4
