public class FrameController
extends Controller

FrameController is a version of Controller intended to make it possible to run a controller outside the context of an applet viewer as appropriate with environments like BlueJ and Dr. Java. A FrameController creates a frame, then runs the controller in that frame.

Constructor Detail


public FrameController()
Constructs a new FrameController. This makes a Frame and runs the applet in the new Frame

Method Detail


public void paint(java.awt.Graphics g)
This method is overriden to simulate the initialization of applets when a controller is actually run by simply creating an instance of the object. The runInFrame method is used to place the controller object in a frame. Then, the first time the system asks the controller to paint its contents on the screen by calling paint, we invoke the init and start methods to initiate the execution of the controller. This cannot be safely done by runInFrame since it is invoked by the FrameController constructor which will execute before the programmer's instance variable initialization expressions have been evaluated.
