Tools and utilities for doing a systematic reworking of the JMRI GUI.
The goal is to allow various GUI types to be available. Subpackages provide key implementation pieces:
- The traditional JMRI "single-document interface", where there are multiple independent windows
- A "multi-document interface", where a primary window contains multiple independent sub-windows
- A "multi-pane" or IDE-style interface", where each window is tiled with inter-related panes
WindowInterfacereference handles the type-specific aspects.
JMRI Swing Usage StructureJMRI GUI code starts as
JmriPanelclasses, which extends the Swing JPanel. Managing the frames (windows) that enclose them is done automatically when they are opened via the
JmriNamedPaneActionis preferred because it defers loading of the referenced panel class until the action is invoked, which can reduce JMRI startup time signficantly.
