public class: Dimension [javadoc | source]
java.lang.Object
   java.awt.geom.Dimension2D
      java.awt.Dimension

All Implemented Interfaces:
    java$io$Serializable, Cloneable

Direct Known Subclasses:
    DimensionUIResource

The Dimension class encapsulates the width and height of a component (in integer precision) in a single object. The class is associated with certain properties of components. Several methods defined by the Component class and the LayoutManager interface return a Dimension object.

Normally the values of width and height are non-negative integers. The constructors that allow you to create a dimension do not prevent you from setting a negative value for these properties. If the value of width or height is negative, the behavior of some methods defined by other objects is undefined.

Field Summary
public  int width    The width dimension; negative values can be used. 
public  int height    The height dimension; negative values can be used. 
Constructor:
 public Dimension() 
 public Dimension(Dimension d) 
    Creates an instance of Dimension whose width and height are the same as for the specified dimension.
    Parameters:
    d - the specified dimension for the width and height values
 public Dimension(int width,
    int height) 
Method from java.awt.Dimension Summary:
equals,   getHeight,   getSize,   getWidth,   hashCode,   setSize,   setSize,   setSize,   toString
Methods from java.awt.geom.Dimension2D:
clone,   getHeight,   getWidth,   setSize,   setSize
Methods from java.lang.Object:
clone,   equals,   finalize,   getClass,   hashCode,   notify,   notifyAll,   toString,   wait,   wait,   wait
Method from java.awt.Dimension Detail:
 public boolean equals(Object obj) 
    Checks whether two dimension objects have equal values.
 public double getHeight() 
    {@inheritDoc}
 public Dimension getSize() 
    Gets the size of this Dimension object. This method is included for completeness, to parallel the getSize method defined by Component.
 public double getWidth() 
    {@inheritDoc}
 public int hashCode() 
    Returns the hash code for this Dimension.
 public  void setSize(Dimension d) 
    Sets the size of this Dimension object to the specified size. This method is included for completeness, to parallel the setSize method defined by Component.
 public  void setSize(double width,
    double height) 
    Sets the size of this Dimension object to the specified width and height in double precision. Note that if width or height are larger than Integer.MAX_VALUE, they will be reset to Integer.MAX_VALUE.
 public  void setSize(int width,
    int height) 
    Sets the size of this Dimension object to the specified width and height. This method is included for completeness, to parallel the setSize method defined by Component.
 public String toString() 
    Returns a string representation of the values of this Dimension object's height and width fields. This method is intended to be used only for debugging purposes, and the content and format of the returned string may vary between implementations. The returned string may be empty but may not be null.
