Method Detail

getName

java.lang.String getName()
Returns the name of the application.


getVersion

java.lang.String getVersion()
Returns the version of the application.


getCopyright

java.lang.String getCopyright()
Returns the copyright of the application.


createView

View createView()
Creates a new view for the application.


initApplication

void initApplication(Application a)
Inits the application.


destroyApplication

void destroyApplication(Application a)
Destroys the application.


initView

void initView(Application a,
              View v)
Inits the supplied view for the application.


destroyView

void destroyView(Application a,
                 View v)
Destroys the supplied view.


createActionMap

javax.swing.ActionMap createActionMap(Application a,
                                      View v)
Creates an action map.

This method is invoked once for the application, and once for each created view.

The application adds the created map to a hierarchy of action maps. Thus actions created for the application are accessible from the action maps of the views.

Parameters:
a - Application.
v - The view for which the toolbars need to be created, or null if the actions are shared by multiple views.

createToolBars

java.util.List<javax.swing.JToolBar> createToolBars(Application a,
                                                    View v)
Creates tool bars.

Depending on the document interface of the application, this method may be invoked only once for the application, or for each opened view.

Parameters:
a - Application.
v - The view for which the toolbars need to be created, or null if the toolbars are shared by multiple views.

createMenus

java.util.List<javax.swing.JMenu> createMenus(Application a,
                                              View v)
Creates menus.

Depending on the document interface of the application, this method may be invoked only once for the application, or for each opened view.

If this method creates a menu with the same title as a standard menu created by Application, the menu created by this method is used. This method can create a standard menu from scratch, or call one of the createMenu-methods in Application and add additional items to the menu.

Parameters:
a - Application.
v - The view for which the toolbars need to be created, or null if the menus are shared by multiple views.

createOpenChooser

URIChooser createOpenChooser(Application a,
                             View v)
Creates an open chooser.

Parameters:
a - Application.
v - The view for which the chooser needs to be created, or null if the chooser is shared by multiple views.

createOpenDirectoryChooser

URIChooser createOpenDirectoryChooser(Application a,
                                      View v)
Creates an open chooser for directories.

Parameters:
a - Application.
v - The view for which the chooser needs to be created, or null if the chooser is shared by multiple views.

createSaveChooser

URIChooser createSaveChooser(Application a,
                             View v)
Creates a save chooser.

Parameters:
a - Application.
v - The view for which the chooser needs to be created, or null if the chooser is shared by multiple views.

createImportChooser

URIChooser createImportChooser(Application a,
                               View v)
Creates an import chooser.

Parameters:
a - Application.
v - The view for which the chooser needs to be created, or null if the chooser is shared by multiple views.

createExportChooser

URIChooser createExportChooser(Application a,
                               View v)
Creates an export chooser.

Parameters:
a - Application.
v - The view for which the chooser needs to be created, or null if the chooser is shared by multiple views.
