public class ComponentEvent extends AWTEvent
A low-level event which indicates that a component moved, changed size, or changed visibility (also, the root class for the other component-level events).
Component events are provided for notification purposes ONLY; The AWT will automatically handle component moves and resizes internally so that GUI layout works properly regardless of whether a program is receiving these events or not.
In addition to serving as the base class for other component-related events (InputEvent, FocusEvent, WindowEvent, ContainerEvent), this class defines the events that indicate changes in a component's size, position, or visibility.
This low-level event is generated by a component object (such as a List) when the component is moved, resized, rendered invisible, or made visible again. The event is passed to every
ComponentAdapter object which registered to receive such events using the component's
addComponentListener method. (
ComponentAdapter objects implement the
ComponentListener interface.) Each such listener object gets this
ComponentEvent when the event occurs.
An unspecified behavior will be caused if the
id parameter of any particular
ComponentEvent instance is not in the range from
ComponentListener, Tutorial: Writing a Component Listener, Serialized Form
public static final int COMPONENT_FIRST
The first number in the range of ids used for component events.
public static final int COMPONENT_LAST
The last number in the range of ids used for component events.
@Native public static final int COMPONENT_MOVED
This event indicates that the component's position changed.
@Native public static final int COMPONENT_RESIZED
This event indicates that the component's size changed.
@Native public static final int COMPONENT_SHOWN
This event indicates that the component was made visible.
@Native public static final int COMPONENT_HIDDEN
This event indicates that the component was rendered invisible.

Returns a parameter string identifying this event. This method is useful for event-logging and for debugging.
