protected JRootPane.RootLayout()
Method Detail

preferredLayoutSize

public Dimension preferredLayoutSize(Container parent)
Returns the amount of space the layout would like to have.

Specified by:
preferredLayoutSize in interface LayoutManager
Parameters:
parent - the Container for which this layout manager is being used
Returns:
a Dimension object containing the layout's preferred size
See Also:
LayoutManager.minimumLayoutSize(java.awt.Container)

minimumLayoutSize

public Dimension minimumLayoutSize(Container parent)
Returns the minimum amount of space the layout needs.

Specified by:
minimumLayoutSize in interface LayoutManager
Parameters:
parent - the Container for which this layout manager is being used
Returns:
a Dimension object containing the layout's minimum size
See Also:
LayoutManager.preferredLayoutSize(java.awt.Container)

maximumLayoutSize

public Dimension maximumLayoutSize(Container target)
Returns the maximum amount of space the layout can use.

Specified by:
maximumLayoutSize in interface LayoutManager2
Parameters:
target - the Container for which this layout manager is being used
Returns:
a Dimension object containing the layout's maximum size
See Also:
Component.getMaximumSize(), LayoutManager

layoutContainer

public void layoutContainer(Container parent)
Instructs the layout manager to perform the layout for the specified container.

Specified by:
layoutContainer in interface LayoutManager
Parameters:
parent - the Container for which this layout manager is being used

addLayoutComponent

public void addLayoutComponent(String name,
                               Component comp)
Description copied from interface: LayoutManager
If the layout manager uses a per-component string, adds the component comp to the layout, associating it with the string specified by name.

Specified by:
addLayoutComponent in interface LayoutManager
Parameters:
name - the string to be associated with the component
comp - the component to be added

removeLayoutComponent

public void removeLayoutComponent(Component comp)
Description copied from interface: LayoutManager
Removes the specified component from the layout.

Specified by:
removeLayoutComponent in interface LayoutManager
Parameters:
comp - the component to be removed

addLayoutComponent

public void addLayoutComponent(Component comp,
                               Object constraints)
Description copied from interface: LayoutManager2
Adds the specified component to the layout, using the specified constraint object.

Specified by:
addLayoutComponent in interface LayoutManager2
Parameters:
comp - the component to be added
constraints - where/how the component is added to the layout.

getLayoutAlignmentX

public float getLayoutAlignmentX(Container target)
Description copied from interface: LayoutManager2
Returns the alignment along the x axis. This specifies how the component would like to be aligned relative to other components. The value should be a number between 0 and 1 where 0 represents alignment along the origin, 1 is aligned the furthest away from the origin, 0.5 is centered, etc.

Specified by:
getLayoutAlignmentX in interface LayoutManager2

getLayoutAlignmentY

public float getLayoutAlignmentY(Container target)
Description copied from interface: LayoutManager2
Returns the alignment along the y axis. This specifies how the component would like to be aligned relative to other components. The value should be a number between 0 and 1 where 0 represents alignment along the origin, 1 is aligned the furthest away from the origin, 0.5 is centered, etc.

Specified by:
getLayoutAlignmentY in interface LayoutManager2

invalidateLayout

public void invalidateLayout(Container target)
Description copied from interface: LayoutManager2
Invalidates the layout, indicating that if the layout manager has cached information it should be discarded.

Specified by:
invalidateLayout in interface LayoutManager2
