Constructor Detail

VisualColorList

public VisualColorList()

The constructor that creates a VisualColorList using a swatch size of 20 and a pane height of 720.

Assuming the label font size is not too large, the vertical spacing of the color swatch blocks will be 20 + 10 = 30. This means that 720 / 30 = 24 colors will be visible at one time.


VisualColorList

public VisualColorList(int swatchSize)

The constructor that creates a VisualColorList using a the given swatch size and a maximum pane height of 720.

The swatch size will be forced to the range 20-50 before usage.

Assuming the label font size is not too large, the vertical spacing of the color swatch blocks will be (swatchSize + 10). This means that 720 / (swatchSize + 10) colors will be visible at one time.

In particular, if the swatch size is set to its minimum of 20, then 24 colors will be visible at one time.

Parameters:
swatchSize - the desired swatch size

VisualColorList

public VisualColorList(int swatchSize,
                       int paneHeight)

The constructor that creates a VisualColorList using a the given swatch size and the given maximum pane height.

The swatch size will be forced to the range 20-50 before usage.

The pane height will be forced to the range 120-720 before usage.

Assuming the label font size is not too large, the vertical spacing of the color swatch blocks will be (swatchSize + 10). This means that paneHeight / (swatchSize + 10) colors will be visible at one time.

Parameters:
swatchSize - the desired swatch size
paneHeight - the desired pane height
