20.30 java.awt.event.WindowListener (JDK 1.1)

This interface defines the methods that an object must implement to "listen" for window events on AWT components. When a WindowEvent occurs, an AWT component notifies its registered WindowListener objects by invoking one of their methods.

An easy way to implement this interface is by subclassing the WindowAdapter class.

public abstract interface WindowListener extends EventListener {
    // Public Instance Methods
            public abstract void windowActivated(WindowEvent e);
            public abstract void windowClosed(WindowEvent e);
            public abstract void windowClosing(WindowEvent e);
            public abstract void windowDeactivated(WindowEvent e);
            public abstract void windowDeiconified(WindowEvent e);
            public abstract void windowIconified(WindowEvent e);
            public abstract void windowOpened(WindowEvent e);

Implemented By:

AWTEventMulticaster, WindowAdapter

Passed To:

AWTEventMulticaster.add(), AWTEventMulticaster.remove(), Window.addWindowListener(), Window.removeWindowListener()

Returned By:

AWTEventMulticaster.add(), AWTEventMulticaster.remove()
