public class JButton
extends AbstractButton
implements Accessible

An implementation of a "push" button. See How to Use Buttons, Check Boxes, and Radio Buttons in The Java Tutorial for information and examples of using buttons.

For the keyboard keys used by this component in the standard Look and Feel (L&F) renditions, see the JButton key assignments.

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. As of 1.4, support for long term storage of all JavaBeansTM has been added to the java.beans package. Please see XMLEncoder.

public JButton()
Creates a button with no set text or icon.


JButton

public JButton(Icon icon)
Creates a button with an icon.

Parameters:
icon - the Icon image to display on the button

JButton

public JButton(String text)
Creates a button with text.

Parameters:
text - the text of the button

JButton

public JButton(Action a)
Creates a button where properties are taken from the Action supplied.

Since:
1.3

JButton

public JButton(String text,
               Icon icon)
Creates a button with initial text and an icon.

Parameters:
text - the text of the button
icon - the Icon image to display on the button
Method Detail

updateUI

public void updateUI()
Resets the UI property to a value from the current look and feel.

Overrides:
updateUI in class AbstractButton
See Also:
JComponent.updateUI()

getUIClassID

public String getUIClassID()
Returns a string that specifies the name of the L&F class that renders this component.

Overrides:
getUIClassID in class JComponent
Returns:
the string "ButtonUI"
See Also:
JComponent.getUIClassID(), UIDefaults.getUI(javax.swing.JComponent)

isDefaultButton

public boolean isDefaultButton()
Gets the value of the defaultButton property, which if true means that this button is the current default button for its JRootPane. Most look and feels render the default button differently, and may potentially provide bindings to access the default button.

Returns:
the value of the defaultButton property
See Also:
JRootPane.setDefaultButton(javax.swing.JButton), isDefaultCapable()

isDefaultCapable

public boolean isDefaultCapable()
Gets the value of the defaultCapable property.

Returns:
the value of the defaultCapable property
See Also:
setDefaultCapable(boolean), isDefaultButton(), JRootPane.setDefaultButton(javax.swing.JButton)

setDefaultCapable

public void setDefaultCapable(boolean defaultCapable)
Sets the defaultCapable property, which determines whether this button can be made the default button for its root pane. The default value of the defaultCapable property is true unless otherwise specified by the look and feel.

Parameters:
defaultCapable - true if this button will be capable of being the default button on the RootPane; otherwise false
See Also:
isDefaultCapable()

removeNotify

public void removeNotify()
Overrides JComponent.removeNotify to check if this button is currently set as the default button on the RootPane, and if so, sets the RootPane's default button to null to ensure the RootPane doesn't hold onto an invalid button reference.

Overrides:
removeNotify in class JComponent
See Also:
JComponent.registerKeyboardAction(java.awt.event.ActionListener, java.lang.String, javax.swing.KeyStroke, int)

configurePropertiesFromAction

protected void configurePropertiesFromAction(Action a)
Factory method which sets the AbstractButton's properties according to values from the Action instance. The properties which get set may differ for AbstractButton subclasses. By default, the properties which get set are Text, Icon, Enabled, ToolTipText, ActionCommand, and Mnemonic.

Overrides:
configurePropertiesFromAction in class AbstractButton
Parameters:
a - the Action from which to get the properties, or null
Since:
1.3
See Also:
Action, AbstractButton.setAction(javax.swing.Action)

paramString

protected String paramString()
Returns a string representation of this JButton. This method is intended to be used only for debugging purposes, and the content and format of the returned string may vary between implementations. The returned string may be empty but may not be null.

Overrides:
paramString in class AbstractButton
Returns:
a string representation of this JButton

getAccessibleContext

public AccessibleContext getAccessibleContext()
Gets the AccessibleContext associated with this JButton. For JButtons, the AccessibleContext takes the form of an AccessibleJButton. A new AccessibleJButton instance is created if necessary.

Specified by:
getAccessibleContext in interface Accessible
Overrides:
getAccessibleContext in class JComponent
Returns:
an AccessibleJButton that serves as the AccessibleContext of this JButton
