Class VirtualContainerBase<C extends Control,​I extends IndexedCell>

All Implemented Interfaces:
Direct Known Subclasses:
ListViewSkin, TableViewSkinBase, TreeViewSkin

public abstract class VirtualContainerBase<C extends Control,​I extends IndexedCell>
extends SkinBase<C>
Parent class to control skins whose contents are virtualized and scrollable. This class handles the interaction with the VirtualFlow class, which is the main class handling the virtualization of the contents of this container.
  • Constructor Details

    • VirtualContainerBase

      public VirtualContainerBase​(C control)
      control - the control
  • Method Details

    • getItemCount

      protected abstract int getItemCount()
      Returns the total number of items in this container, including those that are currently hidden because they are out of view.
      the total number of items in this container
    • updateItemCount

      protected abstract void updateItemCount()
      This method is called when it is possible that the item count has changed (i.e. scrolling has occurred, the control has resized, etc). This method should recalculate the item count and store that for future use by the getItemCount() method.
    • createVirtualFlow

      protected VirtualFlow<I> createVirtualFlow()
      Create the virtualized container that handles the layout and scrolling of all the cells. This enables skin subclasses to provide a custom VirtualFlow implementation. If not overridden, this method intantiates a default VirtualFlow instance.
      newly created VirtualFlow instance
    • dispose

      public void dispose()
      Called by a Skinnable when the Skin is replaced on the Skinnable. This method allows a Skin to implement any logic necessary to clean up itself after the Skin is no longer needed. It may be used to release native resources. The methods Skin.getSkinnable() and Skin.getNode() should return null following a call to dispose. Calling dispose twice has no effect.

      Overridden to remove EventHandler.

      Specified by:
      dispose in interface Skin<C extends Control>
      dispose in class SkinBase<C extends Control>
    • getVirtualFlow

      protected final VirtualFlow<I> getVirtualFlow()
      Get the virtualized container. Subclasses can invoke this method to get the VirtualFlow instance.
      the virtualized container
    • markItemCountDirty

      protected final void markItemCountDirty()
      Call this method to indicate that the item count should be updated on the next pulse.
    • layoutChildren

      protected void layoutChildren​(double x, double y, double w, double h)
      Called during the layout pass of the scenegraph.
      layoutChildren in class SkinBase<C extends Control>
      x - the x position
      y - the y position
      w - the width
      h - the height
