    • Method Detail

      • getBounds

        Rectangle getBounds()
        Returns a rectangle describing the receiver's size and location relative to its parent (or its display if its parent is null).

        Note: If the receiver is already disposed then this methods must return the last valid location and size.

        Returns:
        the receiver's bounding rectangle
      • computeTrim

        Rectangle computeTrim()
        Computes the trim for this control. The trim is the space around the information control's actual content area. It includes all borders of the control and other static content placed around the content area (e.g. a toolbar).
        Returns:
        The receiver's trim. x and y denote the upper left corner of the trimming relative to this control's location i.e. this will most likely be negative values. width and height represent the border sizes (the sum of the horizontal and vertical trimmings, respectively).
      • restoresSize

        boolean restoresSize()
        Tells whether this control allows to restore the previously used size.

        Note: This is not a static property - it can change during the lifetime of this control.

        Returns:
        true if restoring size is supported
      • restoresLocation

        boolean restoresLocation()
        Tells whether this control allows to restore the previously used location.

        Note: This is not a static property - it can change during the lifetime of this control.

        Returns:
        true if restoring location is supported
