public final class: GlyphJustificationInfo [javadoc | source]
java.lang.Object
   java.awt.font.GlyphJustificationInfo
The GlyphJustificationInfo class represents information about the justification properties of a glyph. A glyph is the visual representation of one or more characters. Many different glyphs can be used to represent a single character or combination of characters. The four justification properties represented by GlyphJustificationInfo are weight, priority, absorb and limit.

Weight is the overall 'weight' of the glyph in the line. Generally it is proportional to the size of the font. Glyphs with larger weight are allocated a correspondingly larger amount of the change in space.

Priority determines the justification phase in which this glyph is used. All glyphs of the same priority are examined before glyphs of the next priority. If all the change in space can be allocated to these glyphs without exceeding their limits, then glyphs of the next priority are not examined. There are four priorities, kashida, whitespace, interchar, and none. KASHIDA is the first priority examined. NONE is the last priority examined.

Absorb determines whether a glyph absorbs all change in space. Within a given priority, some glyphs may absorb all the change in space. If any of these glyphs are present, no glyphs of later priority are examined.

Limit determines the maximum or minimum amount by which the glyph can change. Left and right sides of the glyph can have different limits.

Each GlyphJustificationInfo represents two sets of metrics, which are growing and shrinking. Growing metrics are used when the glyphs on a line are to be spread apart to fit a larger width. Shrinking metrics are used when the glyphs are to be moved together to fit a smaller width.
Field Summary
public static final  int PRIORITY_KASHIDA    The highest justification priority. 
public static final  int PRIORITY_WHITESPACE    The second highest justification priority. 
public static final  int PRIORITY_INTERCHAR    The second lowest justification priority. 
public static final  int PRIORITY_NONE    The lowest justification priority. 
public final  float weight    The weight of this glyph. 
public final  int growPriority    The priority level of this glyph as it is growing. 
public final  boolean growAbsorb    If true, this glyph absorbs all extra space at this and lower priority levels when it grows. 
public final  float growLeftLimit    The maximum amount by which the left side of this glyph can grow. 
public final  float growRightLimit    The maximum amount by which the right side of this glyph can grow. 
public final  int shrinkPriority    The priority level of this glyph as it is shrinking. 
public final  boolean shrinkAbsorb    If true,this glyph absorbs all remaining shrinkage at this and lower priority levels as it shrinks. 
public final  float shrinkLeftLimit    The maximum amount by which the left side of this glyph can shrink (a positive number). 
public final  float shrinkRightLimit    The maximum amount by which the right side of this glyph can shrink (a positive number).
