public class BufferCapabilities extends Object implements Cloneable
Capabilities and properties of buffers.
|Modifier and Type||Class and Description|
A type-safe enumeration of the possible back buffer contents after page-flipping
public BufferCapabilities(ImageCapabilities frontCaps, ImageCapabilities backCaps, BufferCapabilities.FlipContents flipContents)
Creates a new object for specifying buffering capabilities
frontCaps- the capabilities of the front buffer; cannot be
backCaps- the capabilities of the back and intermediate buffers; cannot be
flipContents- the contents of the back buffer after page-flipping,
nullif page flipping is not used (implies blitting)
IllegalArgumentException- if frontCaps or backCaps are
public ImageCapabilities getFrontBufferCapabilities()
public ImageCapabilities getBackBufferCapabilities()
public boolean isPageFlipping()
public BufferCapabilities.FlipContents getFlipContents()
false, implying blitting. It can be one of
FlipContents.UNDEFINED(the assumed default),
public boolean isFullScreenRequired()
true, full-screen exclusive mode is required for page-flipping.
public boolean isMultiBufferAvailable()
public Object clone()
Description copied from class:
Creates and returns a copy of this object. The precise meaning of "copy" may depend on the class of the object. The general intent is that, for any object
x, the expression:
x.clone() != xwill be true, and that the expression:
x.clone().getClass() == x.getClass()will be
true, but these are not absolute requirements. While it is typically the case that:
true, this is not an absolute requirement.
By convention, the returned object should be obtained by calling
super.clone. If a class and all of its superclasses (except
Object) obey this convention, it will be the case that
x.clone().getClass() == x.getClass().
By convention, the object returned by this method should be independent of this object (which is being cloned). To achieve this independence, it may be necessary to modify one or more fields of the object returned by
super.clone before returning it. Typically, this means copying any mutable objects that comprise the internal "deep structure" of the object being cloned and replacing the references to these objects with references to the copies. If a class contains only primitive fields or references to immutable objects, then it is usually the case that no fields in the object returned by
super.clone need to be modified.
clone for class
Object performs a specific cloning operation. First, if the class of this object does not implement the interface
Cloneable, then a
CloneNotSupportedException is thrown. Note that all arrays are considered to implement the interface
Cloneable and that the return type of the
clone method of an array type
T where T is any reference or primitive type. Otherwise, this method creates a new instance of the class of this object and initializes all its fields with exactly the contents of the corresponding fields of this object, as if by assignment; the contents of the fields are not themselves cloned. Thus, this method performs a "shallow copy" of this object, not a "deep copy" operation.
Object does not itself implement the interface
Cloneable, so calling the
clone method on an object whose class is
Object will result in throwing an exception at run time.
