Interface WindowListener

All Superinterfaces:
EventListener
All Known Implementing Classes:
AWTEventMulticaster, WindowAdapter

public interface WindowListener
extends EventListener

The listener interface for receiving window events. The class that is interested in processing a window event either implements this interface (and all the methods it contains) or extends the abstract WindowAdapter class (overriding only the methods of interest). The listener object created from that class is then registered with a Window using the window's addWindowListener method. When the window's status changes by virtue of being opened, closed, activated or deactivated, iconified or deiconified, the relevant method in the listener object is invoked, and the WindowEvent is passed to it.

1.1

Method Summary
 void windowActivated(WindowEvent e)
          Invoked when the window is set to be the user's active window, which means the window (or one of its subcomponents) will receive keyboard events.
 void windowClosed(WindowEvent e)
          Invoked when a window has been closed as the result of calling dispose on the window.
 void windowClosing(WindowEvent e)
          Invoked when the user attempts to close the window from the window's system menu.
 void windowDeactivated(WindowEvent e)
          Invoked when a window is no longer the user's active window, which means that keyboard events will no longer be delivered to the window or its subcomponents.
 void windowDeiconified(WindowEvent e)
          Invoked when a window is changed from a minimized to a normal state.
 void windowIconified(WindowEvent e)
          Invoked when a window is changed from a normal to a minimized state.
 void windowOpened(WindowEvent e)
          Invoked the first time a window is made visible.
 

Method Detail

windowOpened

public void windowOpened(WindowEvent e)
Invoked the first time a window is made visible.

windowClosing

public void windowClosing(WindowEvent e)
Invoked when the user attempts to close the window from the window's system menu. If the program does not explicitly hide or dispose the window while processing this event, the window close operation will be cancelled.

windowClosed

public void windowClosed(WindowEvent e)
Invoked when a window has been closed as the result of calling dispose on the window.

windowIconified

public void windowIconified(WindowEvent e)
Invoked when a window is changed from a normal to a minimized state. For many platforms, a minimized window is displayed as the icon specified in the window's iconImage property.

windowDeiconified

public void windowDeiconified(WindowEvent e)
Invoked when a window is changed from a minimized to a normal state.

windowActivated

public void windowActivated(WindowEvent e)
Invoked when the window is set to be the user's active window, which means the window (or one of its subcomponents) will receive keyboard events.

windowDeactivated

public void windowDeactivated(WindowEvent e)
Invoked when a window is no longer the user's active window, which means that keyboard events will no longer be delivered to the window or its subcomponents.
