Class TabSet

java.lang.Object
  extended by javax.swing.text.TabSet
All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable

public class TabSet
extends Object
implements Serializable

A TabSet is comprised of many TabStops. It offers methods for locating the closest TabStop to a given position and finding all the potential TabStops. It is also immutable.

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.

Method Detail

getTabCount

public int getTabCount()
Returns the number of Tab instances the receiver contains.


getTab

public TabStop getTab(int index)
Returns the TabStop at index index. This will throw an IllegalArgumentException if index is outside the range of tabs.


getTabAfter

public TabStop getTabAfter(float location)
Returns the Tab instance after location. This will return null if there are no tabs after location.


getTabIndex

public int getTabIndex(TabStop tab)
Returns:
the index of the TabStop tab, or -1 if tab is not contained in the receiver.

getTabIndexAfter

public int getTabIndexAfter(float location)
Returns the index of the Tab to be used after location. This will return -1 if there are no tabs after location.


equals

public boolean equals(Object o)
Indicates whether this TabSet is equal to another one.

Overrides:
equals in class Object
Parameters:
o - the TabSet instance which this instance should be compared to.
Returns:
true if o is the instance of TabSet, has the same number of TabStops and they are all equal, false otherwise.

hashCode

public int hashCode()
Returns a hashcode for this set of TabStops.

Overrides:
hashCode in class Object
Returns:
a hashcode value for this set of TabStops.
Since:
1.5
See Also:
