public abstract class Toolkit
extends Object

This class is the abstract superclass of all actual implementations of the Abstract Window Toolkit. Subclasses of Toolkit are used to bind the various components to particular native toolkit implementations.

Most applications should not call any of the methods in this class directly. The methods defined by Toolkit are the "glue" that joins the platform-independent classes in the java.awt package with their counterparts in java.awt.peer. Some methods defined by Toolkit query the native operating system directly.

Since:
JDK1.0

sync

public abstract void sync()
Synchronizes this toolkit's graphics state. Some window systems may do buffering of graphics events.

This method ensures that the display is up-to-date. It is useful for animation.


getDefaultToolkit

public static Toolkit getDefaultToolkit()
Gets the default toolkit.

If there is a system property named "awt.toolkit", that property is treated as the name of a class that is a subclass of Toolkit.

If the system property does not exist, then the default toolkit used is the class named "sun.awt.motif.MToolkit", which is a motif implementation of the Abstract Window Toolkit.

Also loads additional classes into the VM, using the property 'assistive_technologies' specified in the Sun reference implementation by a line in the 'accessibility.properties' file. The form is "assistive_technologies=..." where the "..." is a comma-separated list of assistive technology classes to load. Each class is loaded in the order given and a single instance of each is created using Class.forName(class).newInstance(). This is done just after the AWT toolkit is created. All errors are handled via an AWTError exception.

Returns:
the default toolkit.
Throws:
AWTError - if a toolkit could not be found, or if one could not be accessed or instantiated.

getImage

public abstract Image getImage(String filename)
Returns an image which gets pixel data from the specified file, whose format can be either GIF, JPEG or PNG. The underlying toolkit attempts to resolve multiple requests with the same filename to the same returned Image. Since the mechanism required to facilitate this sharing of Image objects may continue to hold onto images that are no longer of use for an indefinate period of time, developers are encouraged to implement their own caching of images by using the createImage variant wherever available.
Parameters:
filename - the name of a file containing pixel data in a recognized file format.
Returns:
an image which gets its pixel data from the specified file.
See Also:
createImage(java.lang.String)

getImage

public abstract Image getImage(URL url)
Returns an image which gets pixel data from the specified URL. The pixel data referenced by the specified URL must be in one of the following formats: GIF, JPEG or PNG. The underlying toolkit attempts to resolve multiple requests with the same URL to the same returned Image. Since the mechanism required to facilitate this sharing of Image objects may continue to hold onto images that are no longer of use for an indefinate period of time, developers are encouraged to implement their own caching of images by using the createImage variant wherever available.
Parameters:
url - the URL to use in fetching the pixel data.
Returns:
an image which gets its pixel data from the specified URL.
See Also:
createImage(java.net.URL)

createImage

public abstract Image createImage(String filename)
Returns an image which gets pixel data from the specified file. The returned Image is a new object which will not be shared with any other caller of this method or its getImage variant.
Parameters:
filename - the name of a file containing pixel data in a recognized file format.
Returns:
an image which gets its pixel data from the specified file.
See Also:
getImage(java.lang.String)

createImage

Returns an image which gets pixel data from the specified URL. The returned Image is a new object which will not be shared with any other caller of this method or its getImage variant.
Parameters:
url - the URL to use in fetching the pixel data.
Returns:
an image which gets its pixel data from the specified URL.
See Also:
getImage(java.net.URL)

prepareImage

public abstract boolean prepareImage(Image image,
                                     int width,
                                     int height,
                                     ImageObserver observer)
Prepares an image for rendering.

If the values of the width and height arguments are both -1, this method prepares the image for rendering on the default screen; otherwise, this method prepares an image for rendering on the default screen at the specified width and height.

The image data is downloaded asynchronously in another thread, and an appropriately scaled screen representation of the image is generated.

This method is called by components prepareImage methods.

Information on the flags returned by this method can be found with the definition of the ImageObserver interface.

Parameters:
image - the image for which to prepare a screen representation.
width - the width of the desired screen representation, or -1.
height - the height of the desired screen representation, or -1.
observer - the ImageObserver object to be notified as the image is being prepared.
Returns:
true if the image has already been fully prepared; false otherwise.

                               ImageObserver observer)
Indicates the construction status of a specified image that is being prepared for display.

If the values of the width and height arguments are both -1, this method returns the construction status of a screen representation of the specified image in this toolkit. Otherwise, this method returns the construction status of a scaled representation of the image at the specified width and height.

This method does not cause the image to begin loading. An application must call prepareImage to force the loading of an image.

This method is called by the component's checkImage methods.

Information on the flags returned by this method can be found with the definition of the ImageObserver interface.

Parameters:
image - the image whose status is being checked.
width - the width of the scaled version whose status is being checked, or -1.
height - the height of the scaled version whose status is being checked, or -1.
observer - the ImageObserver object to be notified as the image is being prepared.
Returns:
the bitwise inclusive OR of the ImageObserver flags for the image data that is currently available.

                                     Properties props)
Gets a PrintJob object which is the result of initiating a print operation on the toolkit's platform.

Each actual implementation of this method should first check if there is a security manager installed. If there is, the method should call the security manager's checkPrintJobAccess method to ensure initiation of a print operation is allowed. If the default implementation of checkPrintJobAccess is used (that is, that method is not overriden), then this results in a call to the security manager's checkPermission method with a RuntimePermission("queuePrintJob") permission.

Parameters:
frame - the parent of the print dialog. May not be null.
jobtitle - the title of the PrintJob. A null title is equivalent to "".
props - a Properties object containing zero or more properties. Properties are not standardized and are not consistent across implementations. Because of this, PrintJobs which require job and page control should use the version of this function which takes JobAttributes and PageAttributes objects. This object may be updated to reflect the user's job choices on exit. May be null.
Returns:
a PrintJob object, or null if the user cancelled the print job.
Throws:
NullPointerException - if frame is null
SecurityException - if this thread is not allowed to initiate a print job request
Since:
JDK1.1

                            PageAttributes pageAttributes)
Gets a PrintJob object which is the result of initiating a print operation on the toolkit's platform.

Each actual implementation of this method should first check if there is a security manager installed. If there is, the method should call the security manager's checkPrintJobAccess method to ensure initiation of a print operation is allowed. If the default implementation of checkPrintJobAccess is used (that is, that method is not overriden), then this results in a call to the security manager's checkPermission method with a RuntimePermission("queuePrintJob") permission.

Parameters:
frame - the parent of the print dialog. May be null if and only if jobAttributes is not null and jobAttributes.getDialog() returns JobAttributes.DialogType.NONE or JobAttributes.DialogType.COMMON.
jobtitle - the title of the PrintJob. A null title is equivalent to "".
jobAttributes - a set of job attributes which will control the PrintJob. The attributes will be updated to reflect the user's choices as outlined in the JobAttributes documentation. May be null.
pageAttributes - a set of page attributes which will control the PrintJob. The attributes will be applied to every page in the job. The attributes will be updated to reflect the user's choices as outlined in the PageAttributes documentation. May be null.
Returns:
a PrintJob object, or null if the user cancelled the print job.
Throws:
NullPointerException - if frame is null and either jobAttributes is null or jobAttributes.getDialog() returns JobAttributes.DialogType.NATIVE.
IllegalArgumentException - if pageAttributes specifies differing cross feed and feed resolutions
SecurityException - if this thread is not allowed to initiate a print job request, or if jobAttributes specifies print to file, and this thread is not allowed to access the file system

Gets the singleton instance of the system Clipboard which interfaces with clipboard facilities provided by the native platform. This clipboard enables data transfer between Java programs and native applications which use native clipboard facilities.

In addition to any and all formats specified in the flavormap.properties file, or other file specified by the AWT.DnD.flavorMapFileURL Toolkit property, text returned by the system Clipboard's getTransferData() method is available in the following flavors:

As with java.awt.datatransfer.StringSelection, if the requested flavor is DataFlavor.plainTextFlavor, or an equivalent flavor, a Reader is returned. Note: The behavior of the system Clipboard's getTransferData() method for DataFlavor.plainTextFlavor, and equivalent DataFlavors, is inconsistent with the definition of DataFlavor.plainTextFlavor . Because of this, support for DataFlavor.plainTextFlavor, and equivalent flavors, is deprecated.

Each actual implementation of this method should first check if there is a security manager installed. If there is, the method should call the security manager's checkSystemClipboardAccess method to ensure it's ok to to access the system clipboard. If the default implementation of checkSystemClipboardAccess is used (that is, that method is not overriden), then this results in a call to the security manager's checkPermission method with an AWTPermission("accessClipboard") permission.

Returns:
the system Clipboard
Since:
JDK1.1

getMenuShortcutKeyMask

public int getMenuShortcutKeyMask()
Determines which modifier key is the appropriate accelerator key for menu shortcuts.

Menu shortcuts, which are embodied in the MenuShortcut class, are handled by the MenuBar class.

By default, this method returns Event.CTRL_MASK. Toolkit implementations should override this method if the Control key isn't the correct key for accelerators.

Returns:
the modifier mask on the Event class that is used for menu shortcuts on this toolkit.
Since:
JDK1.1
See Also:
MenuBar, MenuShortcut

getLockingKeyState

public boolean getLockingKeyState(int keyCode)
Returns whether the given locking key on the keyboard is currently in its "on" state. Valid key codes are VK_CAPS_LOCK, VK_NUM_LOCK, VK_SCROLL_LOCK, and VK_KANA_LOCK.
Throws:
IllegalArgumentException - if keyCode is not one of the valid key codes
UnsupportedOperationException - if the host system doesn't allow getting the state of this key programmatically, or if the keyboard doesn't have this key
Since:
1.3

setLockingKeyState

public void setLockingKeyState(int keyCode,
                               boolean on)
Sets the state of the given locking key on the keyboard. Valid key codes are VK_CAPS_LOCK, VK_NUM_LOCK, VK_SCROLL_LOCK, and VK_KANA_LOCK.

Depending on the platform, setting the state of a locking key may involve event processing and therefore may not be immediately observable through getLockingKeyState.

Throws:
IllegalArgumentException - if keyCode is not one of the valid key codes
UnsupportedOperationException - if the host system doesn't allow setting the state of this key programmatically, or if the keyboard doesn't have this key
Since:
1.3

getNativeContainer

protected static Container getNativeContainer(Component c)
Give native peers the ability to query the native container given a native component (eg the direct parent may be lightweight).

createCustomCursor

public Cursor createCustomCursor(Image cursor,
                                 Point hotSpot,
                                 String name)
                          throws IndexOutOfBoundsException
Creates a new custom cursor object. If the image to display is invalid, the cursor will be hidden (made completely transparent), and the hotspot will be set to (0, 0).
Parameters:
image - the image to display when the cursor is active.
hotSpot - the X and Y of the large cursor's hot spot. The hotSpot values must be less than the Dimension returned by getBestCursorSize().
name - a localized description of the cursor, for Java Accessibility use.
Throws:
IndexOutOfBoundsException - if the hotSpot values are outside the bounds of the cursor.
Since:
1.2

getBestCursorSize

public Dimension getBestCursorSize(int preferredWidth,
                                   int preferredHeight)
Returns the supported cursor dimension which is closest to the desired sizes. Systems which only support a single cursor size will return that size regardless of the desired sizes. Systems which don't support custom cursors will return a dimension of 0, 0.

Note: if an image is used whose dimensions don't match a supported size (as returned by this method), the Toolkit implementation will attempt to resize the image to a supported size. Since converting low-resolution images is difficult, no guarantees are made as to the quality of a cursor image which isn't a supported size. It is therefore recommended that this method be called and an appropriate image used so no image conversion is made.

Parameters:
desiredWidth - the preferred cursor width the component would like to use.
desiredHeight - the preferred cursor height the component would like to use.
Returns:
the closest matching supported cursor size, or a dimension of 0,0 if the Toolkit implementation doesn't support custom cursors.
Since:
1.2

getMaximumCursorColors

public int getMaximumCursorColors()
Returns the maximum number of colors the Toolkit supports in a custom cursor palette.

Note: if an image is used which has more colors in its palette than the supported maximum, the Toolkit implementation will attempt to flatten the palette to the maximum. Since converting low-resolution images is difficult, no guarantees are made as to the quality of a cursor image which has more colors than the system supports. It is therefore recommended that this method be called and an appropriate image used so no image conversion is made.

Returns:
the maximum number of colors, or zero if custom cursors are not supported by this Toolkit implementation.
Since:
1.2

getProperty

public static String getProperty(String key,
                                 String defaultValue)
Gets a property with the specified key and default. This method returns defaultValue if the property is not found.

getSystemEventQueue

public final EventQueue getSystemEventQueue()
Get the application's or applet's EventQueue instance. Depending on the Toolkit implementation, different EventQueues may be returned for different applets. Applets should therefore not assume that the EventQueue instance returned by this method will be shared by other applets or the system.

First, if there is a security manager, its checkAwtEventQueueAccess method is called. If the default implementation of checkAwtEventQueueAccess is used (that is, that method is not overriden), then this results in a call to the security manager's checkPermission method with an AWTPermission("accessEventQueue") permission.

Returns:
the EventQueue object.
Throws:
SecurityException - if a security manager exists and its SecurityManager.checkAwtEventQueueAccess() method denies access to the EventQueue.
See Also:
AWTPermission

getSystemEventQueueImpl

protected abstract EventQueue getSystemEventQueueImpl()

addAWTEventListener

public void addAWTEventListener(AWTEventListener listener,
                                long eventMask)
Adds an AWTEventListener to receive all AWTEvents dispatched system-wide that conform to the given eventMask.

First, if there is a security manager, its checkPermission method is called with an AWTPermission("listenToAllAWTEvents") permission. This may result in a SecurityException.

eventMask is a bitmask of event types to receive. It is constructed by bitwise OR-ing together the event masks defined in AWTEvent.

Note: event listener use is not recommended for normal application use, but are intended solely to support special purpose facilities including support for accessibility, event record/playback, and diagnostic tracing. If listener is null, no exception is thrown and no action is performed.

Parameters:
listener - the event listener.
eventMask - the bitmask of event types to receive
Throws:
SecurityException - if a security manager exists and its checkPermission method doesn't allow the operation.
Since:
1.2
