          Creates a new AbstractLocator.
 
Method Summary
 int getGap ()
          Returns the number of pixels to leave between the figure being located and the reference point.
protected   Rectangle getNewBounds ( Dimension size, Point center)
          Recalculate the location of the figure according to its desired position relative to the center point.
protected abstract   Point getReferencePoint ()
          Returns the reference point in absolute coordinates used to calculate the location.
 int getRelativePosition ()
          Returns the position of the figure with respect to the center point.
 void relocate ( IFigure target)
          Recalculates the position of the figure and returns the updated bounds.
 void setGap (int i)
          Sets the gap between the reference point and the figure being placed.

Constructor Detail

AbstractLocator

public AbstractLocator()
Creates a new AbstractLocator.

Method Detail

getGap

public int getGap()
Returns the number of pixels to leave between the figure being located and the reference point. Only used if getRelativePosition() returns something other than PositionConstants.CENTER.

Returns:
The gap
Since:
2.0

getReferencePoint

protected abstract 
Point getReferencePoint()
Returns the reference point in absolute coordinates used to calculate the location.

Returns:
The reference point in absolute coordinates
Since:
2.0

getNewBounds

protected 
Rectangle getNewBounds(
Dimension size,
                                 
Point center)
Recalculate the location of the figure according to its desired position relative to the center point.

Parameters:
size - The size of the figure
center - The center point
Returns:
The new bounds
Since:
2.0

getRelativePosition

public int getRelativePosition()
Returns the position of the figure with respect to the center point. Possible values can be found in PositionConstants and include CENTER, NORTH, SOUTH, EAST, WEST, NORTH_EAST, NORTH_WEST, SOUTH_EAST, or SOUTH_WEST.

Returns:
An int constant representing the relative position
Since:
2.0

relocate

public void relocate(
IFigure target)
Recalculates the position of the figure and returns the updated bounds.

Specified by:
relocate in interface Locator
Parameters:
target - The figure to relocate

setGap

public void setGap(int i)
Sets the gap between the reference point and the figure being placed. Only used if getRelativePosition() returns something other than PositionConstants.CENTER.

Parameters:
i - The gap
Since:
2.0

setRelativePosition

public void setRelativePosition(int pos)
Sets the position of the figure with respect to the center point. Possible values can be found in PositionConstants and include CENTER, NORTH, SOUTH, EAST, WEST, NORTH_EAST, NORTH_WEST, SOUTH_EAST, or SOUTH_WEST.

Parameters:
pos - The relative position
Since:
2.0
