abstract public class: AbstractWriter [javadoc | source]
java.lang.Object
   javax.swing.text.AbstractWriter

Direct Known Subclasses:
    HTMLWriter, MinimalHTMLWriter

AbstractWriter is an abstract class that actually does the work of writing out the element tree including the attributes. In terms of how much is written out per line, the writer defaults to 100. But this value can be set by subclasses.
Field Summary
protected static final  char NEWLINE    How the text packages models newlines. 
Constructor:
 protected AbstractWriter(Writer w,
    Document doc) 
    Creates a new AbstractWriter. Initializes the ElementIterator with the default root of the document.
    Parameters:
    w - a Writer.
    doc - a Document
 protected AbstractWriter(Writer w,
    Element root) 
    Creates a new AbstractWriter. Initializes the ElementIterator with the element passed in.
    Parameters:
    w - a Writer
    root - an Element
 protected AbstractWriter(Writer w,
    Document doc,
    int pos,
    int len) 
    Creates a new AbstractWriter. Initializes the ElementIterator with the element passed in.
    Parameters:
    w - a Writer
    doc - an Element
    pos - The location in the document to fetch the content.
    len - The amount to write out.
 protected AbstractWriter(Writer w,
    Element root,
    int pos,
    int len) 
    Creates a new AbstractWriter. Initializes the ElementIterator with the element passed in.
    Parameters:
    w - a Writer
    root - an Element
    pos - The location in the document to fetch the content.
    len - The amount to write out.

Method from javax.swing.text.AbstractWriter Detail:
 protected  void decrIndent() 
    Decrements the indent level.
 protected boolean getCanWrapLines() 
    Returns whether or not the lines can be wrapped. If this is false no lineSeparator's will be output.
 protected int getCurrentLineLength() 
    Returns the current line length.
 protected Document getDocument() 
    Fetches the document.
 protected ElementIterator getElementIterator() 
    Fetches the ElementIterator.
 public int getEndOffset() 
    Returns the last offset to be output.
 protected int getIndentLevel() 
    Returns the current indentation level. That is, the number of times incrIndent has been invoked minus the number of times decrIndent has been invoked.
 protected int getIndentSpace() 
    Returns the amount of space to indent.
 protected int getLineLength() 
    Returns the maximum line length.
 public String getLineSeparator() 
    Returns the string used to represent newlines.
 public int getStartOffset() 
    Returns the first offset to be output.
 protected String getText(Element elem) throws BadLocationException 
    Returns the text associated with the element. The assumption here is that the element is a leaf element. Throws a BadLocationException when encountered.
 protected Writer getWriter() 
    Returns the Writer that is used to output the content.
 protected boolean inRange(Element next) 
    This method determines whether the current element is in the range specified. When no range is specified, the range is initialized to be the entire document. inRange() returns true if the range specified intersects with the element's range.
 protected  void incrIndent() 
    Increments the indent level. If indenting would cause getIndentSpace() *getIndentLevel() to be > than getLineLength() this will not cause an indent.
 protected  void indent() throws IOException 
    Does indentation. The number of spaces written out is indent level times the space to map mapping. If the current line is empty, this will not make it so that the current line is still considered empty.
 protected boolean isLineEmpty() 
    Returns true if the current line should be considered empty. This is true when getCurrentLineLength == 0 || indent has been invoked on an empty line.
 protected  void output(char[] content,
    int start,
    int length) throws IOException 
    The last stop in writing out content. All the write methods eventually make it to this method, which invokes write on the Writer.

    This method also updates the line length based on length. If this is invoked to output a newline, the current line length will need to be reset as will no longer be valid. If it is up to the caller to do this. Use writeLineSeparator to write out a newline, which will property update the current line length.

 protected  void setCanWrapLines(boolean newValue) 
    Sets whether or not lines can be wrapped. This can be toggled during the writing of lines. For example, outputting HTML might set this to false when outputting a quoted string.
 protected  void setCurrentLineLength(int length) 
    Sets the current line length.
 protected  void setIndentSpace(int space) 
    Enables subclasses to specify how many spaces an indent maps to. When indentation takes place, the indent level is multiplied by this mapping. The default is 2.
 protected  void setLineLength(int l) 
    Enables subclasses to set the number of characters they want written per line. The default is 100.
 public  void setLineSeparator(String value) 
    Sets the String used to reprsent newlines. This is initialized in the constructor from either the Document, or the System property line.separator.
 protected  void text(Element elem) throws BadLocationException, IOException 
    Writes out text. If a range is specified when the constructor is invoked, then only the appropriate range of text is written out.
 abstract protected  void write() throws IOException, BadLocationException
    This abstract method needs to be implemented by subclasses. Its responsibility is to iterate over the elements and use the write() methods to generate output in the desired format.
 protected  void write(char ch) throws IOException 
    Writes out a character. This is implemented to invoke the write method that takes a char[].
 protected  void write(String content) throws IOException 
    Writes out a string. This is implemented to invoke the write method that takes a char[].
 protected  void write(char[] chars,
    int startIndex,
    int length) throws IOException 
    All write methods call into this one. If getCanWrapLines() returns false, this will call output with each sequence of chars that doesn't contain a NEWLINE, followed by a call to writeLineSeparator. On the other hand, if getCanWrapLines() returns true, this will split the string, as necessary, so getLineLength is honored. The only exception is if the current string contains no whitespace, and won't fit in which case the line length will exceed getLineLength.
 protected  void writeAttributes(AttributeSet attr) throws IOException 
    Writes out the set of attributes as " =" pairs. It throws an IOException when encountered.
 protected  void writeLineSeparator() throws IOException 
    Writes the line separator. This invokes output directly as well as setting the lineLength to 0.
