Class TabStop

java.lang.Object
  |
  +--javax.swing.text.TabStop
All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable

public class TabStop
extends Object
implements Serializable

This class encapsulates a single tab stop (basically as tab stops are thought of by RTF). A tab stop is at a specified distance from the left margin, aligns text in a specified way, and has a specified leader. TabStops are immutable, and usually contained in TabSets.

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.

static int ALIGN_CENTER
          Characters following tab are positioned such that all following characters up to next tab/newline are centered around the tabs location.
static int ALIGN_DECIMAL
          Characters following tab are aligned such that next decimal/tab/newline is at the tab location, very similiar to RIGHT_TAB, just includes decimal as additional character to look for.
static int ALIGN_LEFT
          Character following tab is positioned at location.
static int ALIGN_RIGHT
          Characters following tab are positioned such that all following characters up to next tab/newline end at location.

Constructor Detail

TabStop

public TabStop(float pos)
Creates a tab at position pos with a default alignment and default leader.

TabStop

public TabStop(float pos,
               int align,
               int leader)
Creates a tab with the specified position pos, alignment align and leader leader.
Method Detail

getPosition

public float getPosition()
Returns:
the postion of the tab.

getAlignment

public int getAlignment()
Returns:
the alignment of the tab.

getLeader

public int getLeader()
Returns:
the leader of the tab.

equals

public boolean equals(Object other)
Returns true if other equals the receiver.
Overrides:
equals in class Object
Following copied from class: java.lang.Object
Parameters:
obj - the reference object with which to compare.
Returns:
true if this object is the same as the obj argument; false otherwise.

Boolean.hashCode(), Hashtable

hashCode

public int hashCode()
Returns the hashCode for the object. This must be defined here to ensure 100% pure.
Overrides:
hashCode in class Object
Returns:
the hashCode for the object

toString

public String toString()
Description copied from class: Object
Returns a string representation of the object. In general, the toString method returns a string that "textually represents" this object. The result should be a concise but informative representation that is easy for a person to read. It is recommended that all subclasses override this method.

The toString method for class Object returns a string consisting of the name of the class of which the object is an instance, the at-sign character `@', and the unsigned hexadecimal representation of the hash code of the object. In other words, this method returns a string equal to the value of:

 getClass().getName() + '@' + Integer.toHexString(hashCode())
 
Overrides:
toString in class Object
Following copied from class: java.lang.Object
Returns:
a string representation of the object.
