Class RGBA

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    Serializable

    public final class RGBA
    extends Object
    implements Serializable
    Instances of this class are descriptions of colors in terms of the primary additive color model (red, green, blue and alpha). A color may be described in terms of the relative intensities of these three primary colors. The brightness of each color is specified by a value in the range 0 to 255, where 0 indicates no color (blackness) and 255 indicates maximum intensity and for alpha 0 indicates transparent and 255 indicates opaque.

    The hashCode() method in this class uses the values of the public fields to compute the hash value. When storing instances of the class in hashed collections, do not modify these fields after the object has been inserted.

    Application code does not need to explicitly release the resources managed by each instance when those instances are no longer required, and thus no dispose() method is provided.

      • equals

        public boolean equals​(Object object)
        Compares the argument to the receiver, and returns true if they represent the same object using a class specific comparison.
        Overrides:
        equals in class Object
        Parameters:
        object - the object to compare with this object
        Returns:
        true if the object is the same as this object and false otherwise

        hashCode()
      • hashCode

        public int hashCode()
        Returns an integer hash code for the receiver. Any two objects that return true when passed to equals must return the same value for this method.
        Overrides:
        hashCode in class Object
        Returns:
        the receiver's hash

      • toString

        public String toString()
        Returns a string containing a concise, human-readable description of the receiver.
        Overrides:
        toString in class Object
        Returns:
        a string representation of the RGBA
