public class JPanel
extends javax.swing.JComponent
implements javax.accessibility.Accessible

JPanel is a generic lightweight container.

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.

Constructor Detail

JPanel

public JPanel(java.awt.LayoutManager layout,
              boolean isDoubleBuffered)
Creates a new JPanel with the specified layout manager and buffering strategy.

Parameters:
layout - the LayoutManager to use
isDoubleBuffered - a boolean, true for double-buffering, which uses additional memory space to achieve fast, flicker-free updates

JPanel

public JPanel(java.awt.LayoutManager layout)
Create a new buffered JPanel with the specified layout manager

Parameters:
layout - the LayoutManager to use

JPanel

public JPanel(boolean isDoubleBuffered)
Create a new JPanel with FlowLayout and the specified buffering strategy. If isDoubleBuffered is true, the JPanel will use a double buffer.

Parameters:
isDoubleBuffered - a boolean, true for double-buffering, which uses additional memory space to achieve fast, flicker-free updates

JPanel

public JPanel()
Create a new JPanel with a double buffer and a flow layout

Method Detail

updateUI

public void updateUI()
Notification from the UIFactory that the L&F has changed.

See Also:
JComponent#updateUI

getUIClassID

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

Returns:
"PanelUI"
See Also:
JComponent#getUIClassID, UIDefaults#getUI

paramString

protected java.lang.String paramString()
Returns a string representation of this JPanel. 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.

Overriding paramString() to provide information about the specific new aspects of the JFC components.

Returns:
a string representation of this JPanel.

getAccessibleContext

public javax.accessibility.AccessibleContext getAccessibleContext()
Get the AccessibleContext associated with this JComponent

Specified by:
getAccessibleContext in interface javax.accessibility.Accessible
Returns:
the AccessibleContext of this JComponent
