Enum Constant Detail

RELATED

public static final LayoutStyle.ComponentPlacement RELATED
Enumeration value indicating the two components are visually related and will be placed in the same parent. For example, a JLabel providing a label for a JTextField is typically visually associated with the JTextField; the constant RELATED is used for this.


UNRELATED

public static final LayoutStyle.ComponentPlacement UNRELATED
Enumeration value indicating the two components are visually unrelated and will be placed in the same parent. For example, groupings of components are usually visually separated; the constant UNRELATED is used for this.


INDENT

public static final LayoutStyle.ComponentPlacement INDENT
Enumeration value indicating the distance to indent a component is being requested. For example, often times the children of a label will be horizontally indented from the label. To determine the preferred distance for such a gap use the INDENT type.

This value is typically only useful with a direction of EAST or WEST.

Method Detail

values

public static LayoutStyle.ComponentPlacement[] values()
Returns an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared. This method may be used to iterate over the constants as follows:
for (LayoutStyle.ComponentPlacement c : LayoutStyle.ComponentPlacement.values())
    System.out.println(c);

Returns:
an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared

valueOf

public static LayoutStyle.ComponentPlacement valueOf(String name)
Returns the enum constant of this type with the specified name. The string must match exactly an identifier used to declare an enum constant in this type. (Extraneous whitespace characters are not permitted.)

Parameters:
name - the name of the enum constant to be returned.
Returns:
the enum constant with the specified name
Throws:
IllegalArgumentException - if this enum type has no constant with the specified name
NullPointerException - if the argument is null
