public class TabStop extends Object implements Serializable
This class encapsulates a single tab stop (basically as tab stops are thought of by RTF). A tab stop is at a specified distance from the left margin, aligns text in a specified way, and has a specified leader. TabStops are immutable, and usually contained in TabSets.
Warning: Serialized objects of this class will not be compatible with future Swing releases. The current serialization support is appropriate for short term storage or RMI between applications running the same version of Swing. As of 1.4, support for long term storage of all JavaBeans™ has been added to the
java.beans package. Please see
public static final int ALIGN_LEFT
Character following tab is positioned at location.
public static final int ALIGN_RIGHT
Characters following tab are positioned such that all following characters up to next tab/newline end at location.
public static final int ALIGN_CENTER
Characters following tab are positioned such that all following characters up to next tab/newline are centered around the tabs location.
public static final int ALIGN_DECIMAL
Characters following tab are aligned such that next decimal/tab/newline is at the tab location, very similar to RIGHT_TAB, just includes decimal as additional character to look for.

public TabStop(float pos)
Creates a tab at position
pos with a default alignment and default leader.
public TabStop(float pos, int align, int leader)
Creates a tab with the specified position
align and leader
public float getPosition()
Returns the position, as a float, of the tab.
public int getAlignment()
Returns the alignment, as an integer, of the tab.
public int getLeader()
Returns the leader of the tab.
public boolean equals(Object other)
Returns true if the tabs are equal.
other- the reference object with which to compare.
public int hashCode()
Returns the hashCode for the object. This must be defined here to ensure 100% pure.
public String toString()
Description copied from class:
Returns a string representation of the object. In general, the
toString method returns a string that "textually represents" this object. The result should be a concise but informative representation that is easy for a person to read. It is recommended that all subclasses override this method.
toString method for class
Object returns a string consisting of the name of the class of which the object is an instance, the at-sign character `
@', and the unsigned hexadecimal representation of the hash code of the object. In other words, this method returns a string equal to the value of:
getClass().getName() + '@' + Integer.toHexString(hashCode())
