class:PropertyDescriptor [NONE]

  • Direct Known Subclasses:
    IndexedPropertyDescriptor

    public class PropertyDescriptor
    extends FeatureDescriptor
    
    A PropertyDescriptor describes one property that a Java Bean exports via a pair of accessor methods.
    Since:
    1.1

constructor:<init>(java.lang.String,java.lang.Class) [NONE]

  • PropertyDescriptor

    public PropertyDescriptor​(String propertyName,
                              Class<?> beanClass)
                       throws IntrospectionException
    
    Constructs a PropertyDescriptor for a property that follows the standard Java convention by having getFoo and setFoo accessor methods. Thus if the argument name is "fred", it will assume that the writer method is "setFred" and the reader method is "getFred" (or "isFred" for a boolean property). Note that the property name should start with a lower case character, which will be capitalized in the method names.
    Parameters:
    propertyName - The programmatic name of the property.
    beanClass - The Class object for the target bean. For example sun.beans.OurButton.class.
    Throws:
    IntrospectionException - if an exception occurs during introspection.

                              String writeMethodName)
                       throws IntrospectionException
    
    This constructor takes the name of a simple property, and method names for reading and writing the property.
    Parameters:
    propertyName - The programmatic name of the property.

    readMethodName - The name of the method used for reading the property value. May be null if the property is write-only.

    Throws:
    IntrospectionException - if an exception occurs during introspection.

                       throws IntrospectionException
    
    This constructor takes the name of a simple property, and Method objects for reading and writing the property.
    Parameters:

method:getPropertyType() [NONE]

  • getPropertyType

    public Class<?> getPropertyType()
    Returns the Java type info for the property. Note that the Class object may describe primitive Java types such as int. This type is returned by the read method or is used as the parameter type of the write method. Returns null if the type is an indexed property that does not support non-indexed access.
    Returns:
    the Class object that represents the Java type info, or null if the type cannot be determined

method:getReadMethod() [NONE]

  • getReadMethod

    public Method getReadMethod()
    Gets the method that should be used to read the property value.
    Returns:
    The method that should be used to read the property value. May return null if the property can't be read.

method:setReadMethod(java.lang.reflect.Method) [NONE]

  • setReadMethod

    public void setReadMethod​(Method readMethod)
                       throws IntrospectionException
    
    Sets the method that should be used to read the property value.
    Parameters:
    readMethod - The new read method.
    Throws:
    IntrospectionException - if the read method is invalid
    Since:
    1.2

method:getWriteMethod() [NONE]

  • getWriteMethod

    public Method getWriteMethod()
    Gets the method that should be used to write the property value.
    Returns:
    The method that should be used to write the property value. May return null if the property can't be written.

method:setWriteMethod(java.lang.reflect.Method) [NONE]

  • setWriteMethod

    public void setWriteMethod​(Method writeMethod)
                        throws IntrospectionException
    
    Sets the method that should be used to write the property value.
    Parameters:
    writeMethod - The new write method.
    Throws:
    IntrospectionException - if the write method is invalid
    Since:
    1.2

method:isBound() [NONE]

  • isBound

    public boolean isBound()
    Updates to "bound" properties will cause a "PropertyChange" event to get fired when the property is changed.
    Returns:
    True if this is a bound property.

method:setBound(boolean) [NONE]

  • setBound

    public void setBound​(boolean bound)
    Updates to "bound" properties will cause a "PropertyChange" event to get fired when the property is changed.
    Parameters:
    bound - True if this is a bound property.

method:isConstrained() [NONE]

  • isConstrained

    public boolean isConstrained()
    Attempted updates to "Constrained" properties will cause a "VetoableChange" event to get fired when the property is changed.
    Returns:
    True if this is a constrained property.

method:setConstrained(boolean) [NONE]

  • setConstrained

    public void setConstrained​(boolean constrained)
    Attempted updates to "Constrained" properties will cause a "VetoableChange" event to get fired when the property is changed.
    Parameters:
    constrained - True if this is a constrained property.

method:setPropertyEditorClass(java.lang.Class) [NONE]

  • setPropertyEditorClass

    public void setPropertyEditorClass​(Class<?> propertyEditorClass)
    Normally PropertyEditors will be found using the PropertyEditorManager. However if for some reason you want to associate a particular PropertyEditor with a given property, then you can do it with this method.
    Parameters:
    propertyEditorClass - The Class for the desired PropertyEditor.

method:getPropertyEditorClass() [NONE]

  • getPropertyEditorClass

    public Class<?> getPropertyEditorClass()
    Gets any explicit PropertyEditor Class that has been registered for this property.
    Returns:
    Any explicit PropertyEditor Class that has been registered for this property. Normally this will return "null", indicating that no special editor has been registered, so the PropertyEditorManager should be used to locate a suitable PropertyEditor.

method:createPropertyEditor(java.lang.Object) [NONE]

  • createPropertyEditor

    public PropertyEditor createPropertyEditor​(Object bean)
    Constructs an instance of a property editor using the current property editor class.

    If the property editor class has a public constructor that takes an Object argument then it will be invoked using the bean parameter as the argument. Otherwise, the default constructor will be invoked.

    Parameters:
    bean - the source object
    Returns:
    a property editor instance or null if a property editor has not been defined or cannot be created
    Since:
    1.5

method:equals(java.lang.Object) [NONE]

  • equals

    public boolean equals​(Object obj)
    Compares this PropertyDescriptor against the specified object. Returns true if the objects are the same. Two PropertyDescriptors are the same if the read, write, property types, property editor and flags are equivalent.
    Overrides:
    equals in class Object
    Parameters:
    obj - the reference object with which to compare.
    Returns:
    true if this object is the same as the obj argument; false otherwise.
    Since:
    1.4
