What can ControlEditor do? [message #453279] Mon, 04 April 2005 05:52 Go to next message

Hi!
I'm now very puzzled because I don't know what ControlEditor can do.
In some program, when I delete ControlEditor and setBounds for the control
myself,it also runs very well!

In the API,it says like this:
A ControlEditor is a manager for a Control that appears above a composite
and tracks with the moving and resizing of that composite. It can be used to
display one control above another control. This could be used when editing a
control that does not have editing capabilities by using a text editor or
for launching a dialog by placing a button above a control.

But can someone tell me more about its really use?

Any suggestions are welcomed and appreciated.

For the most part, it is the subclasses of ControlEditor that are used -
these are TableEditor and TreeEditor. In the case of Tree and Table, the
ControlEditor subclasses track the position of the cell as it is scrolled
around or the column is resized or the tree is expanded.

To Veronika Irvine:
Thx very much!!!
Now I know it's very usefull when it's used as TableEditor and
TreeEditor.
But I still have a little problem about ControlEditor .
In the API:"...or for launching a dialog by placing a button above a
control".
But why used a ControlEditor here? I don't think needing a ControlEditor
here to
launch a dialog. Only one button can do it very well.
