Method Summary

protected void
configurePropertiesFromAction(Action a)
AccessibleContext
getAccessibleContext()
Returns the object that provides accessibility features for this JButton component.
String
getUIClassID()
Returns the suffix ("ButtonUI" in this case) used to determine the class name for a UI delegate that can provide the look and feel for a JButton.
boolean
isDefaultButton()
Returns true if this button is the default button in its JRootPane.
boolean
isDefaultCapable()
Returns true if this button can act as the default button.
protected String
paramString()
Returns an implementation-dependent string describing the attributes of this JButton.
void
removeNotify()
Overrides JComponent.removeNotify to check if this button is currently set as the default button on the RootPane, and if so, sets the RootPane's default button to null to ensure the RootPane doesn't hold onto an invalid button reference.
void
setDefaultCapable(boolean defaultCapable)
Sets the defaultCapable property which indicates if this button may become the default button in its JRootPane.
void
updateUI()
Sets this button's UI delegate to the default (obtained from the UIManager) for the current look and feel.
