Method Detail

attachedToElement

public void attachedToElement(Element el)
Called to attach the implementation to a specific element. Will be called in the element's constructor. Allows implementors of this interface to store a reference to the holder class, useful for implementing the property change listeners.

Parameters:
el - the element to attach to

addPropertyChangeListener

public void addPropertyChangeListener(PropertyChangeListener l)
Add a property change listener.

Parameters:
l - the listener to add

removePropertyChangeListener

public void removePropertyChangeListener(PropertyChangeListener l)
Remove a property change listener.

Parameters:
l - the listener to remove

readResolve

public Object readResolve()
Implementations must be resolvable. I.e., upon deserialization they must be able to recreate the holder class.

Returns:
an instance of the proper subclass of Element
See Also:
Serializable

getCookie

public Node.Cookie getCookie(Class type)
Get the support for a cookie, if any. Changes of supported cookies are not fired.

Parameters:
type - the cookie class to look for
Returns:
an instance assignable to that class, or null if the cookie is not supported

markCurrent

public void markCurrent(boolean beforeAfter)
Mark the current element in the context of this element. The current element means the position for inserting new elements.

Parameters:
beforeAfter - true means that new element is inserted before the specified element, false means after.
