    • documentBaseKey

      public static final String documentBaseKey
      Key stored as a client property to indicate the base that relative references are resolved against. For example, lets say you keep your images in the directory resources relative to the code path, you would use the following the set the base:
         jComponent.putClientProperty(documentBaseKey,
                                      xxx.class.getResource("resources/"));

    • isHTMLString

      public static boolean isHTMLString(String s)
      Check the given string to see if it should trigger the html rendering logic in a non-text component that supports html rendering.
      Parameters:
      s - a text
      Returns:
      true if the given string should trigger the html rendering logic in a non-text component
    • updateRenderer

      public static void updateRenderer(JComponent c, String text)
      Stash the HTML render for the given text into the client properties of the given JComponent. If the given text is NOT HTML the property will be cleared of any renderer.

      This method is useful for ComponentUI implementations that are static (i.e. shared) and get their state entirely from the JComponent.

      Parameters:
      c - a component
      text - a text
