javax.swing.text
Class DefaultStyledDocument

java.lang.Object
  extended by javax.swing.text.AbstractDocument
      extended by javax.swing.text.DefaultStyledDocument
All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable, Document, StyledDocument
Direct Known Subclasses:
HTMLDocument

public class DefaultStyledDocument
extends AbstractDocument
implements StyledDocument

A document that can be marked up with character and paragraph styles in a manner similar to the Rich Text Format. The element structure for this document represents style crossings for style runs. These style runs are mapped into a paragraph element structure (which may reside in some other structure). The style runs break at paragraph boundaries since logical styles are assigned to paragraph boundaries.

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.

Constant Field Values

buffer

protected DefaultStyledDocument.ElementBuffer buffer
Constructor Detail

DefaultStyledDocument

public DefaultStyledDocument(AbstractDocument.Content c,
                             StyleContext styles)
Constructs a styled document.

Parameters:
c - the container for the content
styles - resources and style definitions which may be shared across documents

DefaultStyledDocument

public DefaultStyledDocument(StyleContext styles)
Constructs a styled document with the default content storage implementation and a shared set of styles.

Parameters:
styles - the styles

DefaultStyledDocument

public DefaultStyledDocument()
Constructs a default styled document. This buffers input content by a size of BUFFER_SIZE_DEFAULT and has a style context that is scoped by the lifetime of the document and is not shared with other documents.

Method Detail

getDefaultRootElement

public Element getDefaultRootElement()
Gets the default root element.

Specified by:
getDefaultRootElement in interface Document
Specified by:
getDefaultRootElement in class AbstractDocument
Returns:
the root
See Also:
Document.getDefaultRootElement()

create

protected void create(DefaultStyledDocument.ElementSpec[] data)
Initialize the document to reflect the given element structure (i.e. the structure reported by the getDefaultRootElement method. If the document contained any data it will first be removed.


insert

protected void insert(int offset,
                      DefaultStyledDocument.ElementSpec[] data)
               throws BadLocationException
Inserts new elements in bulk. This is useful to allow parsing with the document in an unlocked state and prepare an element structure modification. This method takes an array of tokens that describe how to update an element structure so the time within a write lock can be greatly reduced in an asynchronous update situation.

This method is thread safe, although most Swing methods are not. Please see How to Use Threads for more information.

Parameters:
offset - the starting offset >= 0
data - the element data
Throws:
BadLocationException - for an invalid starting offset

addStyle

public Style addStyle(String nm,
                      Style parent)
Adds a new style into the logical style hierarchy. Style attributes resolve from bottom up so an attribute specified in a child will override an attribute specified in the parent.

Specified by:
addStyle in interface StyledDocument
Parameters:
nm - the name of the style (must be unique within the collection of named styles). The name may be null if the style is unnamed, but the caller is responsible for managing the reference returned as an unnamed style can't be fetched by name. An unnamed style may be useful for things like character attribute overrides such as found in a style run.
parent - the parent style. This may be null if unspecified attributes need not be resolved in some other style.
Returns:
the style

removeStyle

public void removeStyle(String nm)
Removes a named style previously added to the document.

Specified by:
removeStyle in interface StyledDocument
Parameters:
nm - the name of the style to remove

getStyle

public Style getStyle(String nm)
Fetches a named style previously added.

Specified by:
getStyle in interface StyledDocument
Parameters:
nm - the name of the style
Returns:
the style

getStyleNames

public Enumeration<?> getStyleNames()
Fetches the list of of style names.

Returns:
all the style names

setLogicalStyle

public void setLogicalStyle(int pos,
                            Style s)
Sets the logical style to use for the paragraph at the given position. If attributes aren't explicitly set for character and paragraph attributes they will resolve through the logical style assigned to the paragraph, which in turn may resolve through some hierarchy completely independent of the element hierarchy in the document.

This method is thread safe, although most Swing methods are not. Please see How to Use Threads for more information.

Specified by:
setLogicalStyle in interface StyledDocument
Parameters:
pos - the offset from the start of the document >= 0
s - the logical style to assign to the paragraph, null if none

getLogicalStyle

public Style getLogicalStyle(int p)
Fetches the logical style assigned to the paragraph represented by the given position.

Specified by:
getLogicalStyle in interface StyledDocument
Parameters:
p - the location to translate to a paragraph and determine the logical style assigned >= 0. This is an offset from the start of the document.
Returns:
the style, null if none

setCharacterAttributes

public void setCharacterAttributes(int offset,
                                   int length,
                                   AttributeSet s,
                                   boolean replace)
Sets attributes for some part of the document. A write lock is held by this operation while changes are being made, and a DocumentEvent is sent to the listeners after the change has been successfully completed.

This method is thread safe, although most Swing methods are not. Please see How to Use Threads for more information.

Specified by:
setCharacterAttributes in interface StyledDocument
Parameters:
offset - the offset in the document >= 0
length - the length >= 0
s - the attributes
replace - true if the previous attributes should be replaced before setting the new attributes

setParagraphAttributes

public void setParagraphAttributes(int offset,
                                   int length,
                                   AttributeSet s,
                                   boolean replace)
Sets attributes for a paragraph.

This method is thread safe, although most Swing methods are not. Please see How to Use Threads for more information.

Specified by:
setParagraphAttributes in interface StyledDocument
Parameters:
offset - the offset into the paragraph >= 0
length - the number of characters affected >= 0
s - the attributes
replace - whether to replace existing attributes, or merge them
