public class Shell
extends Decorations

Instances of this class represent the "windows" which the desktop or "window manager" is managing. Instances that do not have a parent (that is, they are built using the constructor, which takes a Display as the argument) are described as top level shells. Instances that do have a parent are described as secondary or dialog shells.

Instances are always displayed in one of the maximized, minimized or normal states:

  • When an instance is marked as maximized, the window manager will typically resize it to fill the entire visible area of the display, and the instance is usually put in a state where it can not be resized (even if it has style RESIZE) until it is no longer maximized.
  • When an instance is in the normal state (neither maximized or minimized), its appearance is controlled by the style constants which were specified when it was created and the restrictions of the window manager (see below).
  • When an instance has been marked as minimized, its contents (client area) will usually not be visible, and depending on the window manager, it may be "iconified" (that is, replaced on the desktop by a small simplified representation of itself), relocated to a distinguished area of the screen, or hidden. Combinations of these changes are also possible.

The modality of an instance may be specified using style bits. The modality style bits are used to determine whether input is blocked for other shells on the display. The PRIMARY_MODAL style allows an instance to block input to its parent. The APPLICATION_MODAL style allows an instance to block input to every other shell in the display. The SYSTEM_MODAL style allows an instance to block input to all shells, including shells belonging to different applications.

Note: The styles supported by this class are treated as HINTs, since the window manager for the desktop on which the instance is visible has ultimate control over the appearance and behavior of decorations and modality. For example, some window managers only support resizable windows and will always assume the RESIZE style, even if it is not set. In addition, if a modality style is not supported, it is "upgraded" to a more restrictive modality style that is supported. For example, if PRIMARY_MODAL is not supported, it would be upgraded to APPLICATION_MODAL. A modality style may also be "downgraded" to a less restrictive style. For example, most operating systems no longer support SYSTEM_MODAL because it can freeze up the desktop, so this is typically downgraded to APPLICATION_MODAL.

Styles:
BORDER, CLOSE, MIN, MAX, NO_TRIM, RESIZE, TITLE, ON_TOP, TOOL
APPLICATION_MODAL, MODELESS, PRIMARY_MODAL, SYSTEM_MODAL
Events:
Activate, Close, Deactivate, Deiconify, Iconify
Class SWT provides two "convenience constants" for the most commonly required style combinations:
SHELL_TRIM
the result of combining the constants which are required to produce a typical application top level shell: (that is, CLOSE | TITLE | MIN | MAX | RESIZE)
DIALOG_TRIM
the result of combining the constants which are required to produce a typical application dialog shell: (that is, TITLE | CLOSE | BORDER)

Note: Only one of the styles APPLICATION_MODAL, MODELESS, PRIMARY_MODAL and SYSTEM_MODAL may be specified.

IMPORTANT: This class is not intended to be subclassed.

Constructor Detail

Shell

public Shell(int style)
Constructs a new instance of this class given only the style value describing its behavior and appearance. This is equivalent to calling Shell((Display) null, style).

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:
style - the style of control to construct
Throws:
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
See Also:
SWT.BORDER, SWT.CLOSE, SWT.MIN, SWT.MAX, SWT.RESIZE, SWT.TITLE, SWT.NO_TRIM, SWT.SHELL_TRIM, ,

Shell

public Shell(
Display display)
Constructs a new instance of this class given only the display to create it on. It is created with style SWT.SHELL_TRIM.

Note: Currently, null can be passed in for the display argument. This has the effect of creating the shell on the currently active display if there is one. If there is no current display, the shell is created on a "default" display. Passing in null as the display argument is not considered to be good coding style, and may not be supported in a future release of SWT.

Parameters:
display - the display to create the shell on
Throws:
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

Shell

public Shell(
Display display,
             int style)

The class description lists the style constants that are applicable to the class. Style bits are also inherited from superclasses.

Note: Currently, null can be passed in for the display argument. This has the effect of creating the shell on the currently active display if there is one. If there is no current display, the shell is created on a "default" display. Passing in null as the display argument is not considered to be good coding style, and may not be supported in a future release of SWT.

Parameters:
display - the display to create the shell on
style - the style of control to construct
Throws:
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
See Also:
SWT.BORDER, SWT.CLOSE, SWT.MIN, SWT.MAX, SWT.RESIZE, SWT.TITLE, SWT.NO_TRIM, SWT.SHELL_TRIM, ,

Shell

public Shell(
Shell parent)
Constructs a new instance of this class given only its parent. It is created with style SWT.DIALOG_TRIM.

Note: Currently, null can be passed in for the parent. This has the effect of creating the shell on the currently active display if there is one. If there is no current display, the shell is created on a "default" display. Passing in null as the parent is not considered to be good coding style, and may not be supported in a future release of SWT.

Parameters:
parent - a shell which will be the parent of the new instance
Throws:
IllegalArgumentException -
