Class RenderingHints.Key

java.lang.Object
java.awt.RenderingHints.Key
Enclosing class:
RenderingHints

public abstract static class RenderingHints.Key extends Object
Defines the base type of all keys used along with the RenderingHints class to control various algorithm choices in the rendering and imaging pipelines. Instances of this class are immutable and unique which means that tests for matches can be made using the == operator instead of the more expensive equals() method.

    Method
    Description
    final boolean
    equals​(Object o)
    The equals method for all Key objects will return the same result as the equality operator '=='.
    final int
    The hash code for all Key objects will be the same as the system identity code of the object as defined by the System.identityHashCode() method.
    protected final int
    Returns the private integer key that the subclass instantiated this Key with.
    abstract boolean
    Returns true if the specified object is a valid value for this Key.

    • Key

      protected Key(int privatekey)
      Construct a key using the indicated private key. Each subclass of Key maintains its own unique domain of integer keys. No two objects with the same integer key and of the same specific subclass can be constructed. An exception will be thrown if an attempt is made to construct another object of a given class with the same integer key as a pre-existing instance of that subclass of Key.
      Parameters:
      privatekey - the specified key
  • Method Details

    • isCompatibleValue

      public abstract boolean isCompatibleValue(Object val)
      Returns true if the specified object is a valid value for this Key.
      Parameters:
      val - the Object to test for validity
      Returns:
      true if val is valid; false otherwise.
    • intKey

      protected final int intKey()
      Returns the private integer key that the subclass instantiated this Key with.
      Returns:
      the private integer key that the subclass instantiated this Key with.
    • hashCode

      public final int hashCode()
      The hash code for all Key objects will be the same as the system identity code of the object as defined by the System.identityHashCode() method.
      Overrides:
      hashCode in class Object
      Returns:
      a hash code value for this object.
      See Also:
      Object.equals(java.lang.Object), System.identityHashCode(java.lang.Object)
    • equals

      public final boolean equals(Object o)
      The equals method for all Key objects will return the same result as the equality operator '=='.
      Overrides:
      equals in class Object
      Parameters:
      o - the reference object with which to compare.
      Returns:
      true if this object is the same as the obj argument; false otherwise.
