Method Detail

createUI

public static ComponentUI createUI(JComponent c)

installUI

public void installUI(JComponent c)
Description copied from class: ComponentUI
Configures the specified component appropriate for the look and feel. This method is invoked when the ComponentUI instance is being installed as the UI delegate on the specified component. This method should completely configure the component for the look and feel, including the following:
  1. Install any default property values for color, fonts, borders, icons, opacity, etc. on the component. Whenever possible, property values initialized by the client program should not be overridden.
  2. Install a LayoutManager on the component if necessary.
  3. Create/add any required sub-components to the component.
  4. Create/install event listeners on the component.
  5. Create/install a PropertyChangeListener on the component in order to detect and respond to component property changes appropriately.
  6. Install keyboard UI (mnemonics, traversal, etc.) on the component.
  7. Initialize any appropriate instance data.

Overrides:
installUI in class ComponentUI
Parameters:
c - the component where this UI delegate is being installed
See Also:
ComponentUI.uninstallUI(javax.swing.JComponent), JComponent.setUI(javax.swing.plaf.ComponentUI), JComponent.updateUI()

installDefaults

protected void installDefaults()

installComponents

protected void installComponents(JMenuItem menuItem)
Since:
1.3

getPropertyPrefix

protected String getPropertyPrefix()

installListeners

protected void installListeners()

installKeyboardActions

protected void installKeyboardActions()

uninstallUI

public void uninstallUI(JComponent c)
Description copied from class: ComponentUI
Reverses configuration which was done on the specified component during installUI. This method is invoked when this UIComponent instance is being removed as the UI delegate for the specified component. This method should undo the configuration performed in installUI, being careful to leave the JComponent instance in a clean state (no extraneous listeners, look-and-feel-specific property objects, etc.). This should include the following:
  1. Remove any UI-set borders from the component.
  2. Remove any UI-set layout managers on the component.
  3. Remove any UI-added sub-components from the component.
  4. Remove any UI-added event/property listeners from the component.
  5. Remove any UI-installed keyboard UI from the component.
  6. Nullify any allocated instance data objects to allow for GC.

Overrides:
uninstallUI in class ComponentUI
Parameters:
c - the component from which this UI delegate is being removed; this argument is often ignored, but might be used if the UI object is stateless and shared by multiple components
See Also:
ComponentUI.installUI(javax.swing.JComponent), JComponent.updateUI()

uninstallDefaults

protected void uninstallDefaults()

uninstallComponents

protected void uninstallComponents(JMenuItem menuItem)
Since:
1.3

uninstallListeners

protected void uninstallListeners()

uninstallKeyboardActions

protected void uninstallKeyboardActions()

createMouseInputListener

protected MouseInputListener createMouseInputListener(JComponent c)

createMenuDragMouseListener

protected MenuDragMouseListener createMenuDragMouseListener(JComponent c)

createMenuKeyListener

protected MenuKeyListener createMenuKeyListener(JComponent c)

createPropertyChangeListener

protected PropertyChangeListener createPropertyChangeListener(JComponent c)
Creates a PropertyChangeListener which will be added to the menu item. If this method returns null then it will not be added to the menu item.

Returns:
an instance of a PropertyChangeListener or null
Since:
1.6

getMinimumSize

public Dimension getMinimumSize(JComponent c)
Description copied from class: ComponentUI
Returns the specified component's minimum size appropriate for the look and feel. If null is returned, the minimum size will be calculated by the component's layout manager instead (this is the preferred approach for any component with a specific layout manager installed). The default implementation of this method invokes getPreferredSize and returns that value.

Overrides:
getMinimumSize in class ComponentUI
Parameters:
c - the component whose minimum size is being queried; this argument is often ignored, but might be used if the UI object is stateless and shared by multiple components
Returns:
a Dimension object or null
See Also:
JComponent.getMinimumSize(), LayoutManager.minimumLayoutSize(java.awt.Container), ComponentUI.getPreferredSize(javax.swing.JComponent)

getPreferredSize

public Dimension getPreferredSize(JComponent c)
Description copied from class: ComponentUI
Returns the specified component's preferred size appropriate for the look and feel. If null is returned, the preferred size will be calculated by the component's layout manager instead (this is the preferred approach for any component with a specific layout manager installed). The default implementation of this method returns null.

Overrides:
getPreferredSize in class ComponentUI
Parameters:
c - the component whose preferred size is being queried; this argument is often ignored, but might be used if the UI object is stateless and shared by multiple components
See Also:
JComponent.getPreferredSize(), LayoutManager.preferredLayoutSize(java.awt.Container)

getMaximumSize

public Dimension getMaximumSize(JComponent c)
Description copied from class: ComponentUI
Returns the specified component's maximum size appropriate for the look and feel. If null is returned, the maximum size will be calculated by the component's layout manager instead (this is the preferred approach for any component with a specific layout manager installed). The default implementation of this method invokes getPreferredSize and returns that value.

Overrides:
getMaximumSize in class ComponentUI
Parameters:
c - the component whose maximum size is being queried; this argument is often ignored, but might be used if the UI object is stateless and shared by multiple components
Returns:
a Dimension object or null
See Also:
JComponent.getMaximumSize(), LayoutManager2.maximumLayoutSize(java.awt.Container)

getPreferredMenuItemSize

protected Dimension getPreferredMenuItemSize(JComponent c,
                                             Icon checkIcon,
                                             Icon arrowIcon,
                                             int defaultTextIconGap)

update

public void update(Graphics g,
                   JComponent c)
We draw the background in paintMenuItem() so override update (which fills the background of opaque components by default) to just call paint().

Overrides:
update in class ComponentUI
Parameters:
g - the Graphics context in which to paint
c - the component being painted; this argument is often ignored, but might be used if the UI object is stateless and shared by multiple components
See Also:
ComponentUI.paint(java.awt.Graphics, javax.swing.JComponent), JComponent.paintComponent(java.awt.Graphics)

paint

public void paint(Graphics g,
                  JComponent c)
Description copied from class: ComponentUI
Paints the specified component appropriate for the look and feel. This method is invoked from the ComponentUI.update method when the specified component is being painted. Subclasses should override this method and use the specified Graphics object to render the content of the component.

Overrides:
paint in class ComponentUI
Parameters:
g - the Graphics context in which to paint
c - the component being painted; this argument is often ignored, but might be used if the UI object is stateless and shared by multiple components
See Also:
ComponentUI.update(java.awt.Graphics, javax.swing.JComponent)

paintMenuItem

protected void paintMenuItem(Graphics g,
                             JComponent c,
                             Icon checkIcon,
                             Icon arrowIcon,
                             Color background,
                             Color foreground,
                             int defaultTextIconGap)

paintBackground

protected void paintBackground(Graphics g,
                               JMenuItem menuItem,
                               Color bgColor)
Draws the background of the menu item.

Parameters:

menuItem - menu item to be painted
bgColor - selection background color
Since:

                         JMenuItem menuItem,
                         Rectangle textRect,
                         String text)
Renders the text of the current menu item.

Parameters:

getPath

public MenuElement[] getPath()

doClick

protected void doClick(MenuSelectionManager msm)
Call this method when a menu item is to be activated. This method handles some of the details of menu item activation such as clearing the selected path and messaging the JMenuItem's doClick() method.

Parameters:
