AWTEventMulticaster (New)

Name

AWTEventMulticaster (New)

[Graphic: Figure from the text]

Description

This class multicasts events to event listeners. Each multicaster has two listeners, cunningly named a and b. When an event source calls one of the listener methods of the multicaster, the multicaster calls the same listener method on both a and b. Multicasters are built into trees using the static add() and remove() methods. In this way a single event can be sent to many listeners.

Static methods make it easy to implement event multicasting in component subclasses. Each time an add<type>Listener() function is called in the component subclass, call the corresponding AWTEventMulticaster.add() method to chain together (or "tree up") listeners. Similarly, when a remove<type>Listener() function is called, AWTEventMulticaster.remove() can be called to remove a chained listener.

Variables

a

protected EventListener a

One of the EventListeners this AWTEventMulticaster sends events to.

b

protected EventListener b
