public interface: PaintContext [javadoc | source]

All Known Implementing Classes:
    ByteFilter, TexturePaintContext, Byte, ColorPaintContext, RadialGradientPaintContext, Any, MultipleGradientPaintContext, LinearGradientPaintContext, GradientPaintContext, Int

The PaintContext interface defines the encapsulated and optimized environment to generate color patterns in device space for fill or stroke operations on a Graphics2D . The PaintContext provides the necessary colors for Graphics2D operations in the form of a Raster associated with a ColorModel . The PaintContext maintains state for a particular paint operation. In a multi-threaded environment, several contexts can exist simultaneously for a single Paint object.
Method from java.awt.PaintContext Summary:
dispose,   getColorModel,   getRaster
Method from java.awt.PaintContext Detail:
 public  void dispose()
    Releases the resources allocated for the operation.
 public ColorModel getColorModel()
    Returns the ColorModel of the output. Note that this ColorModel might be different from the hint specified in the createContext method of Paint. Not all PaintContext objects are capable of generating color patterns in an arbitrary ColorModel.
 public Raster getRaster(int x,
    int y,
    int w,
    int h)
    Returns a Raster containing the colors generated for the graphics operation.
