public class Label
extends Component
implements Accessible

A Label object is a component for placing text in a container. A label displays a single line of read-only text. The text can be changed by the application, but a user cannot edit it directly.

For example, the code . . .


 setLayout(new FlowLayout(FlowLayout.CENTER, 10, 10));
 add(new Label("Hi There!"));
 add(new Label("Another Label"));
 

produces the following label:

Field Detail

LEFT

public static final int LEFT
Indicates that the label should be left justified.

CENTER

public static final int CENTER
Indicates that the label should be centered.

RIGHT

public static final int RIGHT
Indicates that the label should be right justified.
Since:
JDK1.0t.
Constructor Detail

Label

public Label()
Constructs an empty label. The text of the label is the empty string "".

Label

public Label(String text)
Constructs a new label with the specified string of text, left justified.

             int alignment)
Constructs a new label that presents the specified string of text with the specified alignment. Possible values for alignment are Label.LEFT, Label.RIGHT, and Label.CENTER.
Parameters:
text - the string that the label presents. A null value will be accepted without causing a NullPointerException to be thrown.
alignment - the alignment value.
Method Detail

addNotify

public void addNotify()
Creates the peer for this label. The peer allows us to modify the appearance of the label without changing its functionality.
Overrides:
addNotify in class Component
Following copied from class: java.awt.Component
See Also:
Component.isDisplayable(), Component.removeNotify()

getAlignment

public int getAlignment()
Gets the current alignment of this label. Possible values are Label.LEFT, Label.RIGHT, and Label.CENTER.
See Also:
setAlignment(int)

setAlignment

public void setAlignment(int alignment)
Sets the alignment for this label to the specified alignment. Possible values are Label.LEFT, Label.RIGHT, and Label.CENTER.
Parameters:
alignment - the alignment to be set.
Throws:
IllegalArgumentException - if an improper value for alignment is given.
See Also:
getAlignment()

getText

public String getText()
Gets the text of this label.

paramString

protected String paramString()
Returns the parameter string representing the state of this label. This string is useful for debugging.
Overrides:
paramString in class Component
Returns:
the parameter string of this label.

getAccessibleContext

public AccessibleContext getAccessibleContext()
Gets the AccessibleContext associated with this Label. For labels, the AccessibleContext takes the form of an AccessibleAWTLabel. A new AccessibleAWTLabel instance is created if necessary.
Specified by:
getAccessibleContext in interface Accessible
Overrides:
getAccessibleContext in class Component
Returns:
an AccessibleAWTLabel that serves as the AccessibleContext of this Label
