Class DisplayMode

java.lang.Object
  extended by java.awt.DisplayMode

public final class DisplayMode
extends Object

The DisplayMode class encapsulates the bit depth, height, width, and refresh rate of a GraphicsDevice. The ability to change graphics device's display mode is platform- and configuration-dependent and may not always be available (see GraphicsDevice.isDisplayChangeSupported()).

For more information on full-screen exclusive mode API, see the Full-Screen Exclusive Mode API Tutorial.

Since:
1.4
See Also:
GraphicsDevice, GraphicsDevice.isDisplayChangeSupported(), GraphicsDevice.getDisplayModes(), GraphicsDevice.setDisplayMode(java.awt.DisplayMode)

Field Summary
static int BIT_DEPTH_MULTI
          Value of the bit depth if multiple bit depths are supported in this display mode.
static int REFRESH_RATE_UNKNOWN
          Value of the refresh rate if not known.
 
Constructor Summary
DisplayMode(int width, int height, int bitDepth, int refreshRate)
          Create a new display mode object with the supplied parameters.
 
Method Summary
 boolean equals(DisplayMode dm)
          Returns whether the two display modes are equal.
 boolean equals(Object dm)
          Indicates whether some other object is "equal to" this one.
 int getBitDepth()
          Returns the bit depth of the display, in bits per pixel.
 int getHeight()
          Returns the height of the display, in pixels.
 int getRefreshRate()
          Returns the refresh rate of the display, in hertz.
 int getWidth()
          Returns the width of the display, in pixels.
 int hashCode()
          Returns a hash code value for the object.

Constructor Detail

DisplayMode

public DisplayMode(int width,
                   int height,
                   int bitDepth,
                   int refreshRate)
Create a new display mode object with the supplied parameters.

Parameters:
width - the width of the display, in pixels
height - the height of the display, in pixels
bitDepth - the bit depth of the display, in bits per pixel. This can be BIT_DEPTH_MULTI if multiple bit depths are available.
refreshRate - the refresh rate of the display, in hertz. This can be REFRESH_RATE_UNKNOWN if the information is not available.
See Also:
BIT_DEPTH_MULTI, REFRESH_RATE_UNKNOWN
Method Detail

getHeight

public int getHeight()
Returns the height of the display, in pixels.

Returns:
the height of the display, in pixels

getWidth

public int getWidth()
Returns the width of the display, in pixels.

Returns:
the width of the display, in pixels

getBitDepth

public int getBitDepth()
Returns the bit depth of the display, in bits per pixel. This may be BIT_DEPTH_MULTI if multiple bit depths are supported in this display mode.

Returns:
the bit depth of the display, in bits per pixel.
See Also:
BIT_DEPTH_MULTI

getRefreshRate

public int getRefreshRate()
Returns the refresh rate of the display, in hertz. This may be REFRESH_RATE_UNKNOWN if the information is not available.

Returns:
the refresh rate of the display, in hertz.
See Also:
REFRESH_RATE_UNKNOWN

equals

public boolean equals(DisplayMode dm)
Returns whether the two display modes are equal.

Returns:
whether the two display modes are equal

equals

public boolean equals(Object dm)
Indicates whether some other object is "equal to" this one.

The equals method implements an equivalence relation on non-null object references:

The equals method for class Object implements the most discriminating possible equivalence relation on objects; that is, for any non-null reference values x and y, this method returns true if and only if x and y refer to the same object (x == y has the value true).

Note that it is generally necessary to override the hashCode method whenever this method is overridden, so as to maintain the general contract for the hashCode method, which states that equal objects must have equal hash codes.

Overrides:
equals in class Object
Parameters:
dm - the reference object with which to compare.
Returns:
true if this object is the same as the obj argument; false otherwise.
See Also:
Object.hashCode(), Hashtable

hashCode

public int hashCode()
Returns a hash code value for the object. This method is supported for the benefit of hashtables such as those provided by java.util.Hashtable.

The general contract of hashCode is:

As much as is reasonably practical, the hashCode method defined by class Object does return distinct integers for distinct objects. (This is typically implemented by converting the internal address of the object into an integer, but this implementation technique is not required by the JavaTM programming language.)

Overrides:
hashCode in class Object
Returns:
a hash code value for this object.
