Interface TreeitemRenderer<T>

All Known Implementing Classes:

public interface TreeitemRenderer<T>

Identifies components that can be used as "rubber stamps" to paint the cells in a Tree.

Note: changing a render will not cause the tree to re-render. If you want it to re-render, you could assign the same model again (i.e., setModel(getModel())), or fire an TreeDataEvent event.

item - the Treeitem to render the result.
  1. When this method is called, the treeitem should have no child at all, unless you don't return
  2. Treeitem and Treerow are only components that allowed to be item's children.
  3. A new treerow should be constructed and append to item, when treerow of item is null.
    Otherwise, when treerow of item is not null, modify the content of the treerow or detach the treerow's children first, since that only one treerow is allowed
  4. Do not append any treechildren to item in this method, a treechildren will be appended afterward.
  5. When a treerow is not appended to item, generally label of item is displayed.
data - that is used to render the Treeitem
index - the index of the data that is currently being rendered. Notice the index is the order of the siblings (i.e., data that belongs to the same parent).
