public class AnimationLimitsDialog
extends SettingsDialog

This class supports making a dialog where the user can set upper and lower limits on animated parameters. In general, the only method that you will use is the static showDialog method which creates the dialog and makes appear on the screen. Note that the input boxes in this dialog are objects of type ParameterInput.

Constructor Detail


public AnimationLimitsDialog(java.awt.Component parentComponent,
                             java.lang.String title,
                             Parameter[] params)
Create a dialog box for setting the limits on a specified set of animated parameters. This constrcutor will probably not generally be used directly; the showDialog() method will usually be used instead. Note that the dialog will be created even if there are no Aniamteable parameters in the list (but showDialog() checks this before creating a dialog).

Method Detail


public static boolean showDialog(java.awt.Component parentComponent,
                                 java.lang.String title,
                                 Parameter[] params)
Create and show a modal dialog for setting animation limits. This is the method that will most commonly be used to create AnimationLimitsDialogs. This method does not return until the user has either canceled the dialog or clicked OK. When the user clicks OK, only legal values are accepted. That is, any changes made by the user are checked to see whether they represent legal values for the parameters; if not, the dialog remains on the screen. The input boxes in this dialog are of type ParameterInput.

If there are no animateable parameters in the list of parameters, then a message to that effect is displayed to the user, do AnimationLimits dialog is shown, and the return value of this method is false.

parentComponent - If parentComponent is non-null and is contained in a JFrame, then that JFrame becomes the parent of the modal dialog (so user interaction with that frome is blocked until the user dismisses the dialog). If parentComponet is null or is not contained in JFrame, then an invisible JFrame is created to be the parent of the dialog.
title - The title to appear in the dialog box's title bar.
params - An array of Parameters. Parameters that are not of type Animateable are filtered out and the remaining parameters are shown in the dialog. There should be at least one Animateable parameter in this array. User modifications are aplied directly to the parameter objects passed in this array.


protected boolean doOK()
Description copied from class: SettingsDialog
This is called when the user clicks the OK button. The return value indicates whether the dialog should be disposed of. If the return value is true, the dialog is disposed. If the return value is false, the dialog stays on the screen. Presumably, the return value will be false when the data entered by the user is not legal.

Specified by:
doOK in class SettingsDialog


protected void doDefaults()
Description copied from class: SettingsDialog
This will be called when the user clicks the Defaults button (and will never be called if there is no Defaults button). The method in the SettingsDialog class does nothing.
