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

All Implemented Interfaces:
    java$io$Serializable

This class encapsulates a single tab stop (basically as tab stops are thought of by RTF). A tab stop is at a specified distance from the left margin, aligns text in a specified way, and has a specified leader. TabStops are immutable, and usually contained in TabSets.

Warning: Serialized objects of this class will not be compatible with future Swing releases. The current serialization support is appropriate for short term storage or RMI between applications running the same version of Swing. As of 1.4, support for long term storage of all JavaBeansTM has been added to the java.beans package. Please see java.beans.XMLEncoder .
