edu::hws::jcm::awt::JCMPanel Class Reference
List of all members.
is a Panel with an associated Controller
. When an InputObject
is added to the JCMPanel
, it is automatically added to the controller. When a sub-JCMPanel is added, the Controller
of the sub-panel is "attatched" to the controller of the main panel so that objects in the sub-panel will also be controlled by the Controller
of the main panel. So, if you build an interface entirely from JCMPanels, a lot of the control setup is done automatically. Note that to make this work, you will need a "mainPanel" that fills the entire window or applet (or at least the part that holds JCM components). You should also call the gatherInputs()
method of the main JCMPanel
after it is completely set up, so that changes in input objects will cause the panel's controller to be notified, or, alternatively, you can register the Controller
by hand with InputObjects so that the Controller
will be notified when they change.
The disadvantage of this is that all the data used in the interface is recomputed, even if the input objects that they depend on have not changed. For example. if the user changes the value in a VarialbleInput, all the points on a graph will be recomputed even if the function has not changed. The alternative is to use regular Panels for all or part of the interface and configure some Controllers by hand.
