Direct Known Subclasses:

public class DefaultListCellRenderer
extends JLabel
implements ListCellRenderer, Serializable

Renders an item in a list.

Implementation Note: This class overrides invalidate, validate, revalidate, repaint, isOpaque, and firePropertyChange solely to improve performance. If not overridden, these frequently called methods would execute code paths that are unnecessary for the default list cell renderer. If you write your own renderer, take care to weigh the benefits and drawbacks of overriding these methods.

Warning: Serialized objects of this class will not be compatible with future Swing releases. The current serialization support is appropriate for short term storage or RMI between applications running the same version of Swing. As of 1.4, support for long term storage of all JavaBeansTM has been added to the java.beans package. Please see XMLEncoder.

DefaultListCellRenderer

public DefaultListCellRenderer()
Constructs a default renderer object for an item in a list.

Method Detail

getListCellRendererComponent

public Component getListCellRendererComponent(JList list,
                                              Object value,
                                              int index,
                                              boolean isSelected,
                                              boolean cellHasFocus)
Description copied from interface: ListCellRenderer
Return a component that has been configured to display the specified value. That component's paint method is then called to "render" the cell. If it is necessary to compute the dimensions of a list because the list cells do not have a fixed size, this method is called to generate a component on which getPreferredSize can be invoked.

Specified by:
getListCellRendererComponent in interface ListCellRenderer
Parameters:
list - The JList we're painting.
value - The value returned by list.getModel().getElementAt(index).
index - The cells index.
isSelected - True if the specified cell was selected.
cellHasFocus - True if the specified cell has the focus.
Returns:
A component whose paint() method will render the specified value.
