public class Kali
extends Applet
Kali is the top level Applet class for Kali; i.e. this is where it all begins. The init() method of this class creates the various objects which comprise Kali and lays out the main window.

It generally works as follows:

The other classes of interest are SymmetryGroup, which represents a group, and SymmetryGroups, which holds a list of all the groups that the program knows about.

See Also:
Panorama, DrawPanel, ControlPanel, KaliCanvas, SymmetryGroup, SymmetryGroups

Constructor Index

 o Kali()

Method Index

 o getImageNow(String)
Load an image immediately.
 o handleEvent(Event)
 o init()
Initialize the applet; this is where we create the objects that the applet uses, connect them up to each other, and lay out the window.
 o main(String[])
 o redraw()

Constructors

 o Kali
  public Kali()

Methods

 o getImageNow
  public Image getImageNow(String imagePath)
Load an image immediately. Kali uses this to load an image containing its button bitmaps from the server. This method will not return until the image is finished loading (The Applet getImage() method always returns immediately, while the image loads in another thread. In our case, however, we want to wait until the image has finished loading before continuing, because the next thing we do is carve the image up into individual buttons. This all happens in the constructor for the ControlPanel object.)
 o init
  public void init()
Initialize the applet; this is where we create the objects that the applet uses, connect them up to each other, and lay out the window. See the introduction to the Kali class above for more details on what happens here.
Overrides:
init in class Applet
 o redraw
  public void redraw()
 o handleEvent
  public boolean handleEvent(Event e)
Overrides:
handleEvent in class Component
 o main
  public static void main(String args[])
