Class StyleConstants

java.lang.Object
  extended by javax.swing.text.StyleConstants
Direct Known Subclasses:
StyleConstants.CharacterConstants, StyleConstants.ColorConstants, StyleConstants.FontConstants, StyleConstants.ParagraphConstants

public class StyleConstants
extends Object

A collection of well known or common attribute keys and methods to apply to an AttributeSet or MutableAttributeSet to get/set the properties in a typesafe manner.

The paragraph attributes form the definition of a paragraph to be rendered. All sizes are specified in points (such as found in postscript), a device independent measure.

Diagram shows SpaceAbove, FirstLineIndent, LeftIndent, RightIndent, 
      and SpaceBelow a paragraph.
