Class MinimalHTMLWriter

java.lang.Object
  extended by javax.swing.text.AbstractWriter
      extended by javax.swing.text.html.MinimalHTMLWriter

public class MinimalHTMLWriter
extends AbstractWriter

MinimalHTMLWriter is a fallback writer used by the HTMLEditorKit to write out HTML for a document that is a not produced by the EditorKit. The format for the document is:

 <html>
   <head>
     <style>
        <!-- list of named styles
         p.normal {
            font-family: SansSerif;
              margin-height: 0;
              font-size: 14
           }
        -->
      </style>
   </head>
   <body>
    <p style=normal>
        Bold, italic, and underline attributes
        of the run are emitted as HTML tags.
        The remaining attributes are emitted as
        part of the style attribute of a <span> tag.
        The syntax is similar to inline styles.
    </p>
   </body>
 </html>

MinimalHTMLWriter

public MinimalHTMLWriter(Writer w,
                         StyledDocument doc,
                         int pos,
                         int len)
Creates a new MinimalHTMLWriter.

Method Detail

write

public void write()
           throws IOException,
                  BadLocationException
Generates HTML output from a StyledDocument.

Specified by:
write in class AbstractWriter
Throws:
IOException - on any I/O error
BadLocationException - if pos represents an invalid location within the document.

writeAttributes

protected void writeAttributes(AttributeSet attr)
                        throws IOException
Writes out all the attributes for the following types: StyleConstants.ParagraphConstants, StyleConstants.CharacterConstants, StyleConstants.FontConstants, StyleConstants.ColorConstants. The attribute name and value are separated by a colon. Each pair is separated by a semicolon.

Overrides:
writeAttributes in class AbstractWriter
Parameters:
attr - an AttributeSet.
Throws:
IOException - on any I/O error

text

protected void text(Element elem)
             throws IOException,
                    BadLocationException
Writes out text.

Overrides:
text in class AbstractWriter
Parameters:
elem - an Element.
Throws:
IOException - on any I/O error
BadLocationException - if pos represents an invalid location within the document.

writeStartTag

protected void writeStartTag(String tag)
                      throws IOException
Writes out a start tag appropriately indented. Also increments the indent level.

Throws:
IOException - on any I/O error

writeEndTag

protected void writeEndTag(String endTag)
                    throws IOException
Writes out an end tag appropriately indented. Also decrements the indent level.

Throws:
IOException - on any I/O error

writeHeader

protected void writeHeader()
                    throws IOException
Writes out the <head> and <style> tags, and then invokes writeStyles() to write out all the named styles as the content of the <style> tag. The content is surrounded by valid HTML comment markers to ensure that the document is viewable in applications/browsers that do not support the tag.

Throws:
IOException - on any I/O error

writeStyles

protected void writeStyles()
                    throws IOException
Writes out all the named styles as the content of the <style> tag.

Throws:
IOException - on any I/O error

writeBody

protected void writeBody()
                  throws IOException,
                         BadLocationException
Iterates over the elements in the document and processes elements based on whether they are branch elements or leaf elements. This method specially handles leaf elements that are text.

Throws:
IOException - on any I/O error
BadLocationException

writeEndParagraph

protected void writeEndParagraph()
                          throws IOException
Emits an end tag for a <p> tag. Before writing out the tag, this method ensures that all other tags that have been opened are appropriately closed off.

Throws:
IOException - on any I/O error

writeStartParagraph

protected void writeStartParagraph(Element elem)
                            throws IOException
Emits the start tag for a paragraph. If the paragraph has a named style associated with it, then this method also generates a class attribute for the <p> tag and sets its value to be the name of the style.

Throws:
IOException - on any I/O error

writeLeaf

protected void writeLeaf(Element elem)
                  throws IOException
Responsible for writing out other non-text leaf elements.

Throws:
IOException - on any I/O error

writeImage

protected void writeImage(Element elem)
                   throws IOException
Responsible for handling Icon Elements; deliberately unimplemented. How to implement this method is an issue of policy. For example, if you're generating an <img> tag, how should you represent the src attribute (the location of the image)? In certain cases it could be a URL, in others it could be read from a stream.

Parameters:
elem - element of type StyleConstants.IconElementName
Throws:
IOException

writeComponent

protected void writeComponent(Element elem)
                       throws IOException
Responsible for handling Component Elements; deliberately unimplemented. How this method is implemented is a matter of policy.

Throws:
IOException

isText

protected boolean isText(Element elem)
Returns true if the element is a text element.


writeContent

protected void writeContent(Element elem,
                            boolean needsIndenting)
                     throws IOException,
                            BadLocationException
Writes out the attribute set in an HTML-compliant manner.

Throws:
IOException - on any I/O error
BadLocationException - if pos represents an invalid location within the document.

writeHTMLTags

protected void writeHTMLTags(AttributeSet attr)
                      throws IOException
Generates bold <b>, italic <i>, and <u> tags for the text based on its attribute settings.

Throws:
IOException - on any I/O error

writeNonHTMLAttributes

protected void writeNonHTMLAttributes(AttributeSet attr)
                               throws IOException
Writes out the remaining character-level attributes (attributes other than bold, italic, and underline) in an HTML-compliant way. Given that attributes such as font family and font size have no direct mapping to HTML tags, a <span> tag is generated and its style attribute is set to contain the list of remaining attributes just like inline styles.

Throws:
IOException - on any I/O error

inFontTag

protected boolean inFontTag()
Returns true if we are currently in a <font> tag.


endFontTag

protected void endFontTag()
                   throws IOException
This is no longer used, instead <span> will be written out.

Writes out an end tag for the <font> tag.

Throws:
IOException - on any I/O error

startFontTag

protected void startFontTag(String style)
                     throws IOException
This is no longer used, instead <span> will be written out.

Writes out a start tag for the <font> tag. Because font tags cannot be nested, this method closes out any enclosing font tag before writing out a new start tag.

Throws:
IOException - on any I/O error
