Class StaleEvent

All Implemented Interfaces:

public class StaleEvent extends ObservableEvent
Generic event denoting that the state of an IObservable object is about to change. Note that this event is only fired when an observable becomes stale, not when it becomes unstale; an observable that becomes unstale should always fire a change event. Staleness can be used (for example) to notify listeners when an observable has started a background thread for updating its state. Clients can safely ignore staleness.
