Class AbstractColorChooserPanel


public abstract class AbstractColorChooserPanel
extends JPanel

The is the abstract superclass for color choosers. If you want to add a new color chooser panel into a JColorChooser, sublclass this class.

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. A future release of Swing will provide support for long term persistence.

public AbstractColorChooserPanel()
Method Detail


public abstract void updateChooser()
override this method to update your ChooserPanel This method will be automatically called when the model's state changes. It is also called by installChooserPanel to allow you to set up the initial state of your chooser


protected abstract void buildChooser()


public abstract String getDisplayName()


public abstract Icon getSmallDisplayIcon()


public abstract Icon getLargeDisplayIcon()


public void installChooserPanel(JColorChooser enclosingChooser)
This get called when the panel is added to the chooser. if you're going to override this, be sure to call super.


public void uninstallChooserPanel(JColorChooser enclosingChooser)
This get called when the panel is removed from the chooser. if you're going to override this, be sure to call super.


public ColorSelectionModel getColorSelectionModel()
The model this panel is editing


protected Color getColorFromModel()


public void paint(Graphics g)
Description copied from class: JComponent
This method is invoked by Swing to draw components. Applications should not invoke paint directly, but should instead use the repaint method to schedule the component for redrawing.

This method actually delegates the work of painting to three protected methods: paintComponent, paintBorder, and paintChildren. They're called in the order listed to ensure that children appear on top of component itself. Generally speaking, the component and its children should not paint in the insets area allocated to the border. Subclasses can just override this method, as always. A subclass that just wants to specialize the UI (look and feel) delegates paint method should just override paintComponent.
