Class ConfigState

java.lang.Object
  extended by uk.ac.starlink.topcat.activate.ConfigState

public class ConfigState
extends Object

Object that can preserve the state of a collection of GUI components in a way that is easy to de/serialize. This object provides convenience methods on top of a String->String map, which constitutes its only state, so that serialization to a string context presents no problems.

The intention is that restoring from state encoded in this object should be lenient, for instance ignoring unrecognised keys, so that it can be used in contexts in which the format has changed somewhat between serialization and deserialization, for instance as a consequence of sofware updates. The various restore(key,component) methods will not affect the supplied GUI components in the case that the map contains no entry for the given key.

Constructor Detail

ConfigState

public ConfigState()
Constructs an empty state object.


ConfigState

public ConfigState(Map<String,String> map)
Constructs an object populated by a given map.

Parameters:
map - map constituting this object's content
Method Detail

getMap

public Map<String,String> getMap()
Returns the map on which this object is based. It may, in general, be modified.

Returns:
map

setInt

public void setInt(String key,
                   int value)
Sets an entry of this map as an integer.

Parameters:
key - entry key
value - integer value

getInt

public int getInt(String key)
Retrieves an entry of this map as an integer.

Parameters:
key - entry key
Returns:
integer value, or 0 if not present

saveFlag

public void saveFlag(String key,
                     ButtonModel model)
Stores the selection state of a button model in this map.

Parameters:
key - entry key
model - toggle model containing state

restoreFlag

public void restoreFlag(String key,
                        ButtonModel model)
Restores the selection state of a toggle button model from this map.

Parameters:
key - entry key
model - toggle model to be updated with state

saveText

public void saveText(String key,
                     JTextComponent textComp)
Stores the text content of a text component in this map.

Parameters:
key - entry key
textComp - component containing state

restoreText

public void restoreText(String key,
                        JTextComponent textComp)
Restores the text content of a text component from this map.

Parameters:
key - entry key
textComp - text component to be updated with state

saveSelection

public void saveSelection(String key,
                          JComboBox selector)
Stores the selection of a combo box in this map. The text representation is stored. The selector does not need to contain entries that are strings, but the save/restore will only work if at least the cell renderer is a JLabel whose text property is manipulated to represent (uniquely) the value.

Parameters:
key - entry key
selector - selection component containing state

restoreSelection

public void restoreSelection(String key,
                             JComboBox selector)
Restores the selection of a combo box from this map.

Parameters:
key - entry key
selector - selection component to be updated with state
