Interface Cropper

    • Method Detail

      • isCropper

        boolean isCropper()
        Returns whether it is a cropper, i.e., cropping is applied.

        Note: this method is called when an child is detached, so you have to count one more for the total number of children. Example <= must be used, not <:
        getChildCount() <= getPageSize()

        The result of returning false is the same as not declaring with Cropper.

      • getAvailableAtClient

        java.util.Set<? extends Component> getAvailableAtClient()
        Returns a set of child components that are available at the client, or null if ALL available. The child components in the returned set must be in the same order of Component.getChildren(). In order words, you must use LinkedHashSet or similar to ensure the order in the returned set.

        Note: for better performance, it is better to return null if all children are available at the client.

        Note: the components in the returned set can have different parents. It is useful if you want to implement multi-level cropping, such as tree. Refer to getCropOwner().

      • getCropOwner

        Component getCropOwner()
        Returns the owner of the cropping scope. In most cases, getAvailableAtClient() returns only the available direct children of this component, and this method returns this component. It is so-called a single-level cropping, such as listbox and tree.

        If you want to implement multi-level cropping, such as tree, you can consider the whole tree as a cropping scope. And, getAvailableAtClient() returns all available items, not just the child of this component. In additions, this method returns the tree.
