23.20 java.beans.SimpleBeanInfo (JDK 1.1)

The SimpleBeanInfo class is a trivial implementation of the BeanInfo interface. The methods of this class all return null or -1, indicating that no bean information is available. To use this class, you need only to override the method or methods that return the particular type of bean information you want to provide.

In addition, SimpleBeanInfo provides a convenience method, loadImage(), that takes a resource name as an argument and returns an Image object. This method is useful when defining the getIcon() method.

public class SimpleBeanInfo extends Object implements BeanInfo {
    // Default Constructor: public SimpleBeanInfo()
    // Public Instance Methods
            public BeanInfo[] getAdditionalBeanInfo();  // From BeanInfo
            public BeanDescriptor getBeanDescriptor();  // From BeanInfo
            public int getDefaultEventIndex();  // From BeanInfo
            public int getDefaultPropertyIndex();  // From BeanInfo
            public EventSetDescriptor[] getEventSetDescriptors();  // From BeanInfo
            public Image getIcon(int iconKind);  // From BeanInfo
            public MethodDescriptor[] getMethodDescriptors();  // From BeanInfo
            public PropertyDescriptor[] getPropertyDescriptors();  // From BeanInfo
            public Image loadImage(String resourceName);
