Method Detail

firePropertyChange

public void firePropertyChange(PropertyChangeEvent evt)
Fire an existing PropertyChangeEvent to any registered listeners. No event is fired if the given event's old and new values are equal and non-null.

If isNotifyOnEDT() is true and called off the Event Dispatch Thread this implementation uses SwingUtilities.invokeLater to send out the notification on the Event Dispatch Thread. This ensures listeners are only ever notified on the Event Dispatch Thread.

Overrides:
firePropertyChange in class PropertyChangeSupport
Parameters:
evt - The PropertyChangeEvent object.
Throws:
NullPointerException - if evt is null
Since:
1.6

isNotifyOnEDT

public final boolean isNotifyOnEDT()
