Enum Window.Type

All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable, Comparable<Window.Type>
Enclosing class:
public static enum Window.Type
extends Enum<Window.Type>

Enumeration of available window types. A window type defines the generic visual appearance and behavior of a top-level window. For example, the type may affect the kind of decorations of a decorated Frame or Dialog instance.

Some platforms may not fully support a certain window type. Depending on the level of support, some properties of the window type may be disobeyed.

Enum Constants


public static final Window.Type NORMAL

Represents a normal window. This is the default type for objects of the Window class or its descendants. Use this type for regular top-level windows.


public static final Window.Type UTILITY

Represents a utility window. A utility window is usually a small window such as a toolbar or a palette. The native system may render the window with smaller title-bar if the window is either a Frame or a Dialog object, and if it has its decorations enabled.

public static final Window.Type POPUP

Represents a popup window. A popup window is a temporary window such as a drop-down menu or a tooltip. On some platforms, windows of that type may be forcibly made undecorated even if they are instances of the Frame or Dialog class, and have decorations enabled.



public static Window.Type[] values()

Returns an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared. This method may be used to iterate over the constants as follows:

for (Window.Type c : Window.Type.values())
an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared


public static Window.Type valueOf(String name)

Returns the enum constant of this type with the specified name. The string must match exactly an identifier used to declare an enum constant in this type. (Extraneous whitespace characters are not permitted.)

name - the name of the enum constant to be returned.
the enum constant with the specified name
IllegalArgumentException - if this enum type has no constant with the specified name
NullPointerException - if the argument is null
