18.32 java.awt.Image (JDK 1.0)

This abstract class represents a displayable image in a platform-independent way. An Image object may not be instantiated directly through a constructor; it must be obtained through a call like Applet.getImage() or Component.createImage(). getSource() method returns the ImageProducer object that produces the image data. getGraphics() returns a Graphics object that can be used for drawing into offscreen images (but not images that are downloaded or generated by an ImageProducer).

public abstract class Image extends Object {
    // Default Constructor: public Image()
    // Constants
        1.1  public static final int SCALE_AREA_AVERAGING;
        1.1  public static final int SCALE_DEFAULT;
        1.1  public static final int SCALE_FAST;
        1.1  public static final int SCALE_REPLICATE;
        1.1  public static final int SCALE_SMOOTH;
            public static final Object UndefinedProperty;
    // Public Instance Methods
            public abstract void flush();
            public abstract Graphics getGraphics();
            public abstract int getHeight(ImageObserver observer);
            public abstract Object getProperty(String name, ImageObserver observer);
        1.1  public Image getScaledInstance(int width, int height, int hints);
            public abstract ImageProducer getSource();
            public abstract int getWidth(ImageObserver observer);
