Class ViewportLayout

java.lang.Object
  extended by javax.swing.ViewportLayout
All Implemented Interfaces:
LayoutManager, Serializable

public class ViewportLayout
extends Object
implements LayoutManager, Serializable

The default layout manager for JViewport. ViewportLayout defines a policy for layout that should be useful for most applications. The viewport makes its view the same size as the viewport, however it will not make the view smaller than its minimum size. As the viewport grows the view is kept bottom justified until the entire view is visible, subsequently the view is kept top justified.

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.
