Support for providing html views for the swing components. This translates a simple html string to a javax.swing.text.View implementation that can render the html and provide the necessary layout semantics.

Since:
1.3

Field Summary
static String documentBaseKey
          Key stored as a client property to indicate the base that relative references are resolved against.
static String propertyKey
          Key to use for the html renderer when stored as a client property of a JComponent.
 
Constructor Summary
BasicHTML()
           
 
Method Summary
static View createHTMLView(JComponent c, String html)
          Create an html renderer for the given component and string of html.
static int getHTMLBaseline(View view, int w, int h)
          Returns the baseline for the html renderer.
static boolean isHTMLString(String s)
          Check the given string to see if it should trigger the html rendering logic in a non-text component that supports html rendering.
static void updateRenderer(JComponent c, String text)
          Stash the HTML render for the given text into the client properties of the given JComponent.

propertyKey

public static final String propertyKey
Key to use for the html renderer when stored as a client property of a JComponent.

documentBaseKey

public static final String documentBaseKey
Key stored as a client property to indicate the base that relative references are resolved against. For example, lets say you keep your images in the directory resources relative to the code path, you would use the following the set the base:
   jComponent.putClientProperty(documentBaseKey,
                                xxx.class.getResource("resources/"));

Method Detail

createHTMLView

public static View createHTMLView(JComponent c,
                                  String html)
Create an html renderer for the given component and string of html.


getHTMLBaseline

public static int getHTMLBaseline(View view,
                                  int w,
                                  int h)
Returns the baseline for the html renderer.

Parameters:
view - the View to get the baseline for
w - the width to get the baseline for
h - the height to get the baseline for
Returns:
baseline or a value < 0 indicating there is no reasonable baseline
Throws:
IllegalArgumentException - if width or height is < 0
Since:
1.6

isHTMLString

public static boolean isHTMLString(String s)
Check the given string to see if it should trigger the html rendering logic in a non-text component that supports html rendering.


updateRenderer

public static void updateRenderer(JComponent c,
                                  String text)
Stash the HTML render for the given text into the client properties of the given JComponent. If the given text is NOT HTML the property will be cleared of any renderer.

This method is useful for ComponentUI implementations that are static (i.e. shared) and get their state entirely from the JComponent.
