Protected Constants

MAXGRIDSIZE

protected static final MAXGRIDSIZE

Maximum number of rows and columns within container managed by GridBagLayout.

MINSIZE

protected static final MINSIZE

Used for internal sizing purposes.

PREFERREDSIZE

protected static final PREFERREDSIZE

Used for internal sizing purposes.

Variables

columnWeights

public double[] columnWeights

The weightx values of the components in the row with the most elements.

columnWidths

public int[] columnWidths

The width values of the components in the row with the most elements.

rowHeights

public int[] rowHeights

The height values of the components in the column with the most elements.

rowWeights

public double[] rowWeights

The weighty values of the components in the column with the most elements.

Protected Variables

comptable

protected Hashtable comptable

Internal table to manage components.

defaultConstraints

protected GridBagConstraints defaultConstraints

Constraints to use for Components that have none.

layoutInfo

protected GridBagLayoutInfo layoutInfo

Internal information about the GridBagLayout.

Constructors

GridBagLayout

public GridBagLayout()

Description

Constructs a GridBagLayout object.

Instance Methods

addLayoutComponent

public void addLayoutComponent (Component comp, Object constraints) (New)

Parameters

comp

The component being added.

constraints

An object describing the constraints on this component.

Implements

LayoutManager2.addLayoutComponent()

Description

Adds the component comp to container subject to the given constraints. This is a more generalized version of addLayoutComponent(String, Component). It corresponds to java.awt.Container's add(Component, Object).

public void addLayoutComponent (String name, Component component)

Parameters

name

Name of component to add.

component

Actual component being added.

Implements

LayoutManager.addLayoutComponent()

Description

Does nothing.

getConstraints

public GridBagConstraints getConstraints (Component component)

Parameters

component

Component whose constraints are desired

Returns

GridBagConstraints for component requested.

getLayoutAlignmentX

public abstract float getLayoutAlignmentX (Container target) (New)

Parameters

target

The container to inspect.

Returns

The value .5 for all containers.

Description

This method returns the preferred alignment of the given container target. A return value of 0 is left aligned, .5 is centered, and 1 is right aligned.

getLayoutAlignmentY

public abstract float getLayoutAlignmentY (Container target) (New)

Parameters

target

The container to inspect.

Returns

The value .5 for all containers.

Description

This method returns the preferred alignment of the given container target. A return value of 0 is top aligned, .5 is centered, and 1 is bottom aligned.

getLayoutDimensions

public int[][] getLayoutDimensions()

Returns

Returns two single dimension arrays as a multi-dimensional array. Index 0 is an array of widths (columnWidths instance variable), while index 1 is an array of heights (rowHeights instance variable).

getLayoutOrigin

public Point getLayoutOrigin()

Returns

Returns the origin of the components within the Container whose LayoutManager is GridBagLayout.

getLayoutWeights

public double[][] getLayoutWeights()

Returns

Returns two single dimension arrays as a multi-dimensional array. Index 0 is an array of columns weights (columnWeights instance variable), while index 1 is an array of row weights (rowWeights instance variable).

invalidateLayout

public abstract void invalidateLayout (Container target) (New)

Parameters

target

The container to invalidate.

Description

Does nothing.

layoutContainer

public void layoutContainer (Container target)

Parameters

target

The container that needs to be redrawn.

Implements

LayoutManager.layoutContainer()

Description

Draws components contained within target.

location

public Point location (int x, int y)

Parameters

x

The x coordinate of the grid position to find.

y

The y coordinate of the grid position to find.

Returns

Returns the grid element under the location provided at position (x, y) in pixels. Note that the returned Point uses the GridBagLayout's grid for its coordinate space.

Description

Locates the grid position in the Container under the given location.

maximumLayoutSize

public abstract Dimension maximumLayoutSize (Container target) (New)

Parameters

target

The container to inspect.

Returns

A Dimension whose horizontal and vertical components are Integer.MAX_VALUE.

Description

For GridBagLayout, a maximal Dimension is always returned.

minimumLayoutSize

public Dimension minimumLayoutSize (Container target)

Parameters

target

The container whose size needs to be calculated.

Returns

Minimum Dimension of container target.

Implements

LayoutManager.minimumLayoutSize()

Description

Calculates minimum size of target container.

preferredLayoutSize

public Dimension preferredLayoutSize (Container target)

Parameters

target

The container whose size needs to be calculated.

Returns

Preferred Dimension of container target

Implements

LayoutManager.preferredLayoutSize()

Description

Calculates preferred size of target container.

removeLayoutComponent

public void removeLayoutComponent (Component component)

Parameters

component

Component to stop tracking.

Implements

LayoutManager.removeLayoutComponent()

Description

Does nothing.

setConstraints

public void setConstraints (Component component, GridBagConstraints constraints)

Parameters

component

Component to set constraints for

constraints

Constraints for component

Description

Changes the GridBagConstraints on component to those provided.

toString

public String toString()

Returns

A string representation of the GridBagLayout object.

Overrides

Object.toString()

Protected Instance Methods

AdjustForGravity

protected void AdjustForGravity (GridBagConstraints constraints, Rectangle r)

Parameters

constraints

Constraints to use for adjustment of Rectangle.

r

Rectangular area that needs to be adjusted.

Description

Helper routine for laying out a cell of the grid. The routine adjusts the values for r based upon the constraints.

ArrangeGrid

protected void ArrangeGrid (Container target)

Parameters

target

Container to layout.

Description

Helper routine that does the actual arrangement of components in target.

GetLayoutInfo

protected GridBagLayoutInfo GetLayoutInfo (Container target, int sizeFlag)

Parameters

target

Container to get information about.

sizeFlag

One of the constants MINSIZE or PREFERREDSIZE.

Returns

Returns an internal class used to help size the container.

GetMinSize

protected Dimension GetMinSize (Container target, GridBagLayoutInfo info)

Parameters

target

Container to calculate size.

info

Specifics about the container's constraints.

Returns

Minimum Dimension of container target based on info.

Description

Helper routine for calculating size of container.

lookupConstraints

protected GridBagConstraints lookupConstraints (Component comp)

Parameters

comp

Component in question.

Returns

A reference to the GridBagConstraints object for this component.

Description

Helper routine for calculating size of container.
