Constructor Detail

TableItem

public TableItem(Table parent,
                 int style)
Constructs a new instance of this class given its parent (which must be a Table) and a style value describing its behavior and appearance. The item is added to the end of the items maintained by its parent.

The style value is either one of the style constants defined in class SWT which is applicable to instances of this class, or must be built by bitwise OR'ing together (that is, using the int "|" operator) two or more of those SWT style constants. The class description lists the style constants that are applicable to the class. Style bits are also inherited from superclasses.

Parameters:
parent - a composite control which will be the parent of the new instance (cannot be null)
style - the style of control to construct
Throws:
IllegalArgumentException -
  • ERROR_NULL_ARGUMENT - if the parent is null
SWTException -
  • ERROR_THREAD_INVALID_ACCESS - if not called from the thread that created the parent
  • ERROR_INVALID_SUBCLASS - if this class is not an allowed subclass

TableItem

public TableItem(Table parent,
                 int style,
                 int index)
Constructs a new instance of this class given its parent (which must be a Table), a style value describing its behavior and appearance, and the index at which to place it in the items maintained by its parent.

The style value is either one of the style constants defined in class SWT which is applicable to instances of this class, or must be built by bitwise OR'ing together (that is, using the int "|" operator) two or more of those SWT style constants. The class description lists the style constants that are applicable to the class. Style bits are also inherited from superclasses.

Parameters:
parent - a composite control which will be the parent of the new instance (cannot be null)
style - the style of control to construct
index - the zero-relative index to store the receiver in its parent
Throws:
IllegalArgumentException -
  • ERROR_NULL_ARGUMENT - if the parent is null
  • ERROR_INVALID_RANGE - if the index is not between 0 and the number of elements in the parent (inclusive)
SWTException -
  • ERROR_THREAD_INVALID_ACCESS - if not called from the thread that created the parent
  • ERROR_INVALID_SUBCLASS - if this class is not an allowed subclass

Method Detail

checkSubclass

protected void checkSubclass()
Description copied from class: Widget
Checks that this class can be subclassed.

The SWT class library is intended to be subclassed only at specific, controlled points (most notably, Composite and Canvas when implementing new widgets). This method enforces this rule unless it is overridden.

IMPORTANT: By providing an implementation of this method that allows a subclass of a class which does not normally allow subclassing to be created, the implementer agrees to be fully responsible for the fact that any such subclass will likely fail between SWT releases and will be strongly platform specific. No support is provided for user-written classes which are implemented in this fashion.

The ability to subclass outside of the allowed SWT classes is intended purely to enable those not on the SWT development team to implement patches in order to get around specific limitations in advance of when those limitations can be addressed by the team. Subclassing should not be attempted without an intimate and detailed understanding of the hierarchy.

Overrides:
checkSubclass in class Item
