  extended by javax.portlet.WindowState

public class WindowState
extends java.lang.Object

The WindowState class represents the possible window states that a portlet window can assume.

This class defines a standard set of the most basic portlet window states. Additional window states may be defined by calling the constructor of this class. If a portal/portlet-container does not support a custom window state defined in the portlet application deployment descriptor, the custom window state will be ignored by the portal/portlet container.

Field Detail

NORMAL

public static final WindowState NORMAL
The NORMAL window state indicates that a portlet may be sharing the page with other portlets. It may also indicate that the target device has limited display capabilities. Therefore, a portlet should restrict the size of its rendered output in this window state.

The string value for this state is "normal".


MAXIMIZED

public static final WindowState MAXIMIZED
The MAXIMIZED window state is an indication that a portlet may be the only portlet being rendered in the portal page, or that the portlet has more space compared to other portlets in the portal page. A portlet may generate richer content when its window state is MAXIMIZED.

The string value for this state is "maximized".


MINIMIZED

public static final WindowState MINIMIZED
When a portlet is in MINIMIZED window state, the portlet should only render minimal output or no output at all.

The string value for this state is "minimized".

Constructor Detail

public WindowState(java.lang.String name)
Creates a new window state with the given name.

Upper case letters in the name are converted to lower case letters.

Parameters:
name - The name of the window state
Method Detail

public java.lang.String toString()
Returns a String representation of this window state. Window state names are always lower case names.

Overrides:
toString in class java.lang.Object

String representation of this window state.

hashCode

public int hashCode()
Returns the hash code value for this window state. The hash code is constructed by producing the hash value of the String value of this window state.

Overrides:
hashCode in class java.lang.Object
Returns:
hash code value for this window state

equals

public boolean equals(java.lang.Object object)
Compares the specified object with this window state for equality. Returns true if the Strings equals method for the String representing the two window states returns true.

Overrides:
equals in class java.lang.Object
