public class: ImageFilter [javadoc | source]
java.lang.Object
   java.awt.image.ImageFilter

All Implemented Interfaces:
    Cloneable, ImageConsumer

Direct Known Subclasses:
    OceanDisabledButtonImageFilter, GrayFilter, OceanToolBarImageFilter, CropImageFilter, AreaAveragingScaleFilter, BufferedImageFilter, RGBImageFilter, DebugGraphicsFilter, ReplicateScaleFilter

This class implements a filter for the set of interface methods that are used to deliver data from an ImageProducer to an ImageConsumer. It is meant to be used in conjunction with a FilteredImageSource object to produce filtered versions of existing images. It is a base class that provides the calls needed to implement a "Null filter" which has no effect on the data being passed through. Filters should subclass this class and override the methods which deal with the data that needs to be filtered and modify it as necessary.
Field Summary
protected  ImageConsumer consumer    The consumer of the particular image data stream for which this instance of the ImageFilter is filtering data. It is not initialized during the constructor, but rather during the getFilterInstance() method call when the FilteredImageSource is creating a unique instance of this object for a particular image data stream. 
Method from java.awt.image.ImageFilter Summary:
clone,   getFilterInstance,   imageComplete,   resendTopDownLeftRight,   setColorModel,   setDimensions,   setHints,   setPixels,   setPixels,   setProperties
Methods from java.lang.Object:
clone,   equals,   finalize,   getClass,   hashCode,   notify,   notifyAll,   toString,   wait,   wait,   wait
Method from java.awt.image.ImageFilter Detail:
 public Object clone() 
    Clones this object.
 public ImageFilter getFilterInstance(ImageConsumer ic) 
    Returns a unique instance of an ImageFilter object which will actually perform the filtering for the specified ImageConsumer. The default implementation just clones this object.

    Note: This method is intended to be called by the ImageProducer of the Image whose pixels are being filtered. Developers using this class to filter pixels from an image should avoid calling this method directly since that operation could interfere with the filtering operation.

 public  void imageComplete(int status) 
    Filters the information provided in the imageComplete method of the ImageConsumer interface.

    Note: This method is intended to be called by the ImageProducer of the Image whose pixels are being filtered. Developers using this class to filter pixels from an image should avoid calling this method directly since that operation could interfere with the filtering operation.

 public  void resendTopDownLeftRight(ImageProducer ip) 
    Responds to a request for a TopDownLeftRight (TDLR) ordered resend of the pixel data from an ImageConsumer. When an ImageConsumer being fed by an instance of this ImageFilter requests a resend of the data in TDLR order, the FilteredImageSource invokes this method of the ImageFilter.

    An ImageFilter subclass might override this method or not, depending on if and how it can send data in TDLR order. Three possibilities exist:

    • Do not override this method. This makes the subclass use the default implementation, which is to forward the request to the indicated ImageProducer using this filter as the requesting ImageConsumer. This behavior is appropriate if the filter can determine that it will forward the pixels in TDLR order if its upstream producer object sends them in TDLR order.
    • Override the method to simply send the data. This is appropriate if the filter can handle the request itself — for example, if the generated pixels have been saved in some sort of buffer.
    • Override the method to do nothing. This is appropriate if the filter cannot produce filtered data in TDLR order.
 public  void setColorModel(ColorModel model) 
    Filter the information provided in the setColorModel method of the ImageConsumer interface.

    Note: This method is intended to be called by the ImageProducer of the Image whose pixels are being filtered. Developers using this class to filter pixels from an image should avoid calling this method directly since that operation could interfere with the filtering operation.

 public  void setDimensions(int width,
    int height) 
    Filters the information provided in the setDimensions method of the ImageConsumer interface.

    Note: This method is intended to be called by the ImageProducer of the Image whose pixels are being filtered. Developers using this class to filter pixels from an image should avoid calling this method directly since that operation could interfere with the filtering operation.

 public  void setHints(int hints) 
    Filters the information provided in the setHints method of the ImageConsumer interface.

    Note: This method is intended to be called by the ImageProducer of the Image whose pixels are being filtered. Developers using this class to filter pixels from an image should avoid calling this method directly since that operation could interfere with the filtering operation.

 public  void setPixels(int x,
    int y,
    int w,
    int h,
    ColorModel model,
    byte[] pixels,
    int off,
    int scansize) 
    Filters the information provided in the setPixels method of the ImageConsumer interface which takes an array of bytes.

    Note: This method is intended to be called by the ImageProducer of the Image whose pixels are being filtered. Developers using this class to filter pixels from an image should avoid calling this method directly since that operation could interfere with the filtering operation.

 public  void setPixels(int x,
    int y,
    int w,
    int h,
    ColorModel model,
    int[] pixels,
    int off,
    int scansize) 
    Filters the information provided in the setPixels method of the ImageConsumer interface which takes an array of integers.

    Note: This method is intended to be called by the ImageProducer of the Image whose pixels are being filtered. Developers using this class to filter pixels from an image should avoid calling this method directly since that operation could interfere with the filtering operation.

 public  void setProperties(Hashtable<?, ?> props) 
    Passes the properties from the source object along after adding a property indicating the stream of filters it has been run through.

    Note: This method is intended to be called by the ImageProducer of the Image whose pixels are being filtered. Developers using this class to filter pixels from an image should avoid calling this method directly since that operation could interfere with the filtering operation.
