Class Event

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    Serializable


    public class Event
    extends Object
    implements Serializable
    NOTE: The Event class is obsolete and is available only for backwards compatibility. It has been replaced by the AWTEvent class and its subclasses.

    Event is a platform-independent class that encapsulates events from the platform's Graphical User Interface in the Java 1.0 event model. In Java 1.1 and later versions, the Event class is maintained only for backwards compatibility. The information in this class description is provided to assist programmers in converting Java 1.0 programs to the new event model.

    In the Java 1.0 event model, an event contains an id field that indicates what type of event it is and which other Event variables are relevant for the event.

    For keyboard events, key contains a value indicating which key was activated, and modifiers contains the modifiers for that event. For the KEY_PRESS and KEY_RELEASE event ids, the value of key is the unicode character code for the key. For KEY_ACTION and KEY_ACTION_RELEASE, the value of key is one of the defined action-key identifiers in the Event class (PGUP, PGDN, F1, F2, etc).

    JDK1.0

        when - the time stamp.
        id - the event type.

        NOTE: The Event class is obsolete and is available only for backwards compatibility. It has been replaced by the AWTEvent class and its subclasses.

        Creates an instance of Event, with the specified target component, time stamp, event type, x and y coordinates, keyboard key, state of the modifier keys, and an argument set to null.

        Parameters:
        target - the target component.
        when - the time stamp.
        id - the event type.
        x - the x coordinate.

                     Object arg)
        NOTE: The Event class is obsolete and is available only for backwards compatibility. It has been replaced by the AWTEvent class and its subclasses.

        Creates an instance of Event with the specified target component, event type, and argument.

        Parameters:

    • Method Detail

      • translate

        public void translate(int dx,
                              int dy)
        NOTE: The Event class is obsolete and is available only for backwards compatibility. It has been replaced by the AWTEvent class and its subclasses.

        Translates this event so that its x and y coordinates are increased by dx and dy, respectively.

        This method translates an event relative to the given component. This involves, at a minimum, translating the coordinates into the local coordinate system of the given component. It may also involve translating a region in the case of an expose event.

        Parameters:
        dx - the distance to translate the x coordinate.
        dy - the distance to translate the y coordinate.
      • shiftDown

        public boolean shiftDown()
        NOTE: The Event class is obsolete and is available only for backwards compatibility. It has been replaced by the AWTEvent class and its subclasses.

        Checks if the Shift key is down.

        Returns:
        true if the key is down; false otherwise.
        See Also:
        modifiers, controlDown(), metaDown()
      • controlDown

        public boolean controlDown()
        NOTE: The Event class is obsolete and is available only for backwards compatibility. It has been replaced by the AWTEvent class and its subclasses.

        Checks if the Control key is down.

        Returns:
        true if the key is down; false otherwise.
        See Also:
        modifiers, shiftDown(), metaDown()
      • metaDown

        public boolean metaDown()
        NOTE: The Event class is obsolete and is available only for backwards compatibility. It has been replaced by the AWTEvent class and its subclasses.

        Checks if the Meta key is down.

        Returns:
        true if the key is down; false otherwise.
        See Also:
        modifiers, shiftDown(), controlDown()
      • paramString

        protected String paramString()
        NOTE: The Event class is obsolete and is available only for backwards compatibility. It has been replaced by the AWTEvent class and its subclasses.

        Returns a string representing the state of this Event. This method is intended to be used only for debugging purposes, and the content and format of the returned string may vary between implementations. The returned string may be empty but may not be null.

        Returns:
        the parameter string of this event
      • toString

        public String toString()
        NOTE: The Event class is obsolete and is available only for backwards compatibility. It has been replaced by the AWTEvent class and its subclasses.

        Returns a representation of this event's values as a string.

        Overrides:
        toString in class Object
        Returns:
        a string that represents the event and the values of its member fields.
