public class UniPanel
extends javax.swing.JPanel

This class encapsulates a (JPanel) with buffered, instead of a callback, graphics.

Here is an example that demonstrates some of the features of this class but the API of JPanel (the superclass of this class) and that of Graphics2D contain many other methods that you can use.

import java.awt.*;
import java.awt.geom.*;

public class Draw
{  
   public static void main(String[] args)
   {  

      JFrame frame = new JFrame("My Frame");
                frame.setDefaultCloseOperation(JFrame.DISPOSE_ON_CLOSE);
                frame.setVisible(true);
                frame.pack();

                Container content = frame.getContentPane();
                UniPanel panel = new UniPanel();
                content.add(panel);

                IO.println("Resize the frame then press ENTER");
                IO.readLine();
                int width = panel.getWidth();
                int height = panel.getHeight();
                IO.println(width + "x" + height);
                Graphics2D canvas = panel.getGraphics2D();

      IO.print("Enter any text to draw ... ");
                String str = IO.readLine();
                canvas.setColor(Color.red);
                canvas.drawString(str, width / 3, height / 3);
                panel.repaint();   

      Rectangle2D.Double rec = new Rectangle2D.Double(15, 15,400, 80);
      Line2D.Double line = new Line2D.Double(15, 15, 415, 95);
      Ellipse2D.Double circle = new Ellipse2D.Double(600, 20, 100, 80);
      canvas.draw(rec);
      canvas.draw(line);
      canvas.fill(circle);
      panel.repaint();


      g.drawString("UniCon Graphics!", 450, 40);
      up.repaint();
   }

Constructor Detail

UniPanel

public UniPanel()
Constructs a UniPanel.

Method Detail

paintComponent

public void paintComponent(java.awt.Graphics g1)
This method is used internally by the GUI environment to repaint the panel when deemed needed. Do not invoke this method directly. To force a repaint, invoke the repaint method instead.

Overrides:
paintComponent in class javax.swing.JComponent

getGraphics2D

public java.awt.Graphics2D getGraphics2D()
Return a graphics context (a canvas) on which you can draw. Note that the return is null if the panel is not visible. The canvas is cleared and given the size of the panel whenever this method is invoked.
