Enum FontWeight

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    Serializable, Comparable<FontWeight>

    public enum FontWeight
    extends Enum<FontWeight>
    Specifies different font weights which can be used when searching for a font on the system. The names correspond to pre-defined weights in the OS/2 table of the OpenType font specification. The CSS 3 specification references the same as a sequence of values.

    • Method Detail

      • values

        public static FontWeight[] values()
        Returns an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared. This method may be used to iterate over the constants as follows:
        for (FontWeight c : FontWeight.values())
        an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared
      • valueOf

        public static FontWeight valueOf​(String name)
        Returns the enum constant of this type with the specified name. The string must match exactly an identifier used to declare an enum constant in this type. (Extraneous whitespace characters are not permitted.)
        name - the name of the enum constant to be returned.
        the enum constant with the specified name
        IllegalArgumentException - if this enum type has no constant with the specified name
        NullPointerException - if the argument is null
      • getWeight

        public int getWeight()
        Return the visual weight (degree of blackness or thickness) specified by this FontWeight.
      • findByName

        public static FontWeight findByName​(String name)
        Returns FontWeight by its name.
        name - name of the FontWeight
        the FontWeight by its name
      • findByWeight

        public static FontWeight findByWeight​(int weight)
        Returns the closest FontWeight for a weight value as defined by the CSS and OpenType specifications. Where the specified value is equidistant between two FontWeight values, then the implementation may select either at its discretion. This lookup is without reference to a font, so this is purely a mapping to the set of FontWeight instances and does not mean that a font of that weight will be available.
        weight - the weight value
        closest FontWeight
