Class TextMeasurer

  +--java.awt.font.TextMeasurer

public final class TextMeasurer
extends Object

TextMeasurer provides the primitive operations needed for line break: measuring up to a given advance, determining the advance of a range of characters, and generating a TextLayout for a range of characters. It also provides methods for incremental editing of paragraphs.

Most clients will use the more convenient LineBreakMeasurer, which implements the standard line break policy (placing as many words as will fit on each line).

1.3

Constructor Detail

TextMeasurer

public TextMeasurer(AttributedCharacterIterator text,
                    FontRenderContext frc)
Constructs a TextMeasurer from the source text. The source text should be a single entire paragraph.
Parameters:
text - the source paragraph. Cannot be null.
frc - the information about a graphics device which is needed to measure the text correctly. Cannot be null.
Method Detail

getLineBreakIndex

public int getLineBreakIndex(int start,
                             float maxAdvance)
Returns the index of the first character which will not fit on on a line which begins at start and may be up to maxAdvance in graphical width.
Parameters:
start - the character index at which to start measuring. start is an absolute index, not relative to the start of the paragraph
maxAdvance - the graphical width in which the line must fit
Returns:
the index after the last character which will fit on a line beginning at start, which is not longer than maxAdvance in graphical width

getAdvanceBetween

public float getAdvanceBetween(int start,
                               int limit)
Returns the graphical width of a line beginning at start and including characters up to limit. start and limit are absolute indices, not relative to the start of the paragraph.
Parameters:
start - the character index at which to start measuring
limit - the character index at which to stop measuring
Returns:
the graphical width of a line beginning at start and including characters up to limit

getLayout

public TextLayout getLayout(int start,
                            int limit)
Returns a TextLayout on the given character range.
Parameters:
start - the index of the first character
limit - the index after the last character. Must be greater than start
Returns:
a TextLayout for the characters beginning at start up to (but not including) limit

insertChar

public void insertChar(AttributedCharacterIterator newParagraph,
                       int insertPos)
Updates the TextMeasurer after a single character has been inserted into the paragraph currently represented by this TextMeasurer. After this call, this TextMeasurer is equivalent to a new TextMeasurer created from the text; however, it will usually be more efficient to update an existing TextMeasurer than to create a new one from scratch.
Parameters:
newParagraph - the text of the paragraph after performing the insertion. Cannot be null.
insertPos - the position in the text where the character was inserted. Must not be less than the start of newParagraph, and must be less than the end of newParagraph.

deleteChar

public void deleteChar(AttributedCharacterIterator newParagraph,
                       int deletePos)
Updates the TextMeasurer after a single character has been deleted from the paragraph currently represented by this TextMeasurer. After this call, this TextMeasurer is equivalent to a new TextMeasurer created from the text; however, it will usually be more efficient to update an existing TextMeasurer than to create a new one from scratch.
Parameters:
newParagraph - the text of the paragraph after performing the deletion. Cannot be null.
deletePos - the position in the text where the character was removed. Must not be less than the start of newParagraph, and must not be greater than the end of newParagraph.
