18.61 java.awt.Window (JDK 1.0)

This class represents a top-level window with no borders or menu bar. Window is a Container with BorderLayout as its default layout manager. Window is rarely used directly; its subclasses Frame and Dialog are more commonly useful.

show() (which overrides Component.show()) makes a Window visible and brings it to the front of other windows. toFront() brings a window to the front, and toBack() buries a window beneath others. pack() is an important method that initiates layout management for the window, and sets the window size to match the preferred size of the components contained within the window. getToolkit() returns the Toolkit() in use for this window. Call dispose() when a Window is no longer needed to free its window system resources.

public class Window extends Container {
    // Public Constructor
            public Window(Frame parent);
    // Public Instance Methods
            public void addNotify();  // Overrides Container
        1.1  public synchronized void addWindowListener(WindowListener l);
            public void dispose();
        1.1  public Component getFocusOwner();
        1.1  public Locale getLocale();  // Overrides Component
            public Toolkit getToolkit();  // Overrides Component
            public final String getWarningString();
        1.1  public boolean isShowing();  // Overrides Component
            public void pack();
        1.1  public boolean postEvent(Event e);  // Overrides Component
        1.1  public synchronized void removeWindowListener(WindowListener l);
            public void show();  // Overrides Component
            public void toBack();
            public void toFront();
    // Protected Instance Methods
        1.1  protected void processEvent(AWTEvent e);  // Overrides Container
        1.1  protected void processWindowEvent(WindowEvent e);
