public class JLabel
extends JComponent
implements SwingConstants, Accessible

A display area for a short text string or an image, or both. A label does not react to input events. As a result, it cannot get the keyboard focus. A label can, however, display a keyboard alternative as a convenience for a nearby component that has a keyboard alternative but can't display it.

A JLabel object can display either text, an image, or both. You can specify where in the label's display area the label's contents are aligned by setting the vertical and horizontal alignment. By default, labels are vertically centered in their display area. Text-only labels are leading edge aligned, by default; image-only labels are horizontally centered, by default.

You can also specify the position of the text relative to the image. By default, text is on the trailing edge of the image, with the text and image vertically aligned.

A label's leading and trailing edge are determined from the value of its ComponentOrientation property. At present, the default ComponentOrientation setting maps the leading edge to left and the trailing edge to right.

Finally, you can use the setIconTextGap method to specify how many pixels should appear between the text and the image. The default is 4 pixels.

See How to Use Labels in The Java Tutorial for further documentation.

Warning: Swing is not thread safe. For more information see Swing's Threading Policy.

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.

See Also:
setText(java.lang.String)

setText

public void setText(String text)
Defines the single line of text this component will display. If the value of text is null or empty string, nothing is displayed.

The default value of this property is null.

This is a JavaBeans bound property.

See Also:
setVerticalTextPosition(int), setHorizontalTextPosition(int), setIcon(javax.swing.Icon)

getIcon

public Icon getIcon()
Returns the graphic image (glyph, icon) that the label displays.

Returns:
an Icon
See Also:
setIcon(javax.swing.Icon)

setIcon

public void setIcon(Icon icon)
Defines the icon this component will display. If the value of icon is null, nothing is displayed.

The default value of this property is null.

This is a JavaBeans bound property.

See Also:
setVerticalTextPosition(int), setHorizontalTextPosition(int), getIcon()

getDisabledIcon

public Icon getDisabledIcon()
Returns the icon used by the label when it's disabled. If no disabled icon has been set this will forward the call to the look and feel to construct an appropriate disabled Icon.

Some look and feels might not render the disabled Icon, in which case they will ignore this.

Returns:
the disabledIcon property
See Also:
setDisabledIcon(javax.swing.Icon), LookAndFeel.getDisabledIcon(javax.swing.JComponent, javax.swing.Icon), ImageIcon

setDisabledIcon

public void setDisabledIcon(Icon disabledIcon)
Set the icon to be displayed if this JLabel is "disabled" (JLabel.setEnabled(false)).

The default value of this property is null.

Parameters:
disabledIcon - the Icon to display when the component is disabled
See Also:
getDisabledIcon(), JComponent.setEnabled(boolean)

setDisplayedMnemonic

public void setDisplayedMnemonic(int key)
Specify a keycode that indicates a mnemonic key. This property is used when the label is part of a larger component. If the labelFor property of the label is not null, the label will call the requestFocus method of the component specified by the labelFor property when the mnemonic is activated.

See Also:
getLabelFor(), setLabelFor(java.awt.Component)

setDisplayedMnemonic

public void setDisplayedMnemonic(char aChar)
Specifies the displayedMnemonic as a char value.

Parameters:
aChar - a char specifying the mnemonic to display
See Also:
setDisplayedMnemonic(int)

getDisplayedMnemonic

public int getDisplayedMnemonic()
Return the keycode that indicates a mnemonic key. This property is used when the label is part of a larger component. If the labelFor property of the label is not null, the label will call the requestFocus method of the component specified by the labelFor property when the mnemonic is activated.

Returns:
int value for the mnemonic key
See Also:
getLabelFor(), setLabelFor(java.awt.Component)

setDisplayedMnemonicIndex

public void setDisplayedMnemonicIndex(int index)
                               throws IllegalArgumentException
Provides a hint to the look and feel as to which character in the text should be decorated to represent the mnemonic. Not all look and feels may support this. A value of -1 indicates either there is no mnemonic, the mnemonic character is not contained in the string, or the developer does not wish the mnemonic to be displayed.

The value of this is updated as the properties relating to the mnemonic change (such as the mnemonic itself, the text...). You should only ever have to call this if you do not wish the default character to be underlined. For example, if the text was 'Save As', with a mnemonic of 'a', and you wanted the 'A' to be decorated, as 'Save As', you would have to invoke setDisplayedMnemonicIndex(5) after invoking setDisplayedMnemonic(KeyEvent.VK_A).

Parameters:
index - Index into the String to underline
Throws:
IllegalArgumentException - will be thrown if index= length of the text, or < -1
Since:
1.4

getDisplayedMnemonicIndex

public int getDisplayedMnemonicIndex()
Returns the character, as an index, that the look and feel should provide decoration for as representing the mnemonic character.

Returns:
index representing mnemonic character
Since:
1.4
See Also:
setDisplayedMnemonicIndex(int)
