    • Method Detail

      • getPredefinedProps

        public void getPredefinedProps()
        Gets potential references to predefined properties for this container. This method is called once just after cloning of the property container.

        The method should get reference to using the getProp(...) methods. This allows the subclass to be able to retrieve the new instances to the properties created during addPredefinedProps() if stored in instance variables.

        Subclasses must override this method to do the appropriate initialization, as this method does nothing for the PropCnr class implementation.

        Overrides:
        getPredefinedProps in class UIContainer
      • equalsTree

        Checks for equality in the whole container structure.

        NOTE: This method should not be overridden except in extreme situations, e.g. for MememtoPropCnr.

        Overrides:
        equalsTree in class PropCnr
        Parameters:
        pc2 - The property value to compare with.
        how - Flags EQC_* values for equal checking.
        Returns:
        Both atom and value are equal on all levels.

        Called to resolve methods for the component from main "onPrepare" once the ClassReference has been found.

        Components should override this method to load it's required methods.

        Overrides:
        onPrepare in class UIComp
        Parameters:
        cr - The class reference with a valid reference.
