Local Bounds in Java Applets...
Posted on 2004-08-18
I have a class that extends a Canvas. I draw into this canvas by overriding the paint(Graphics g) method. At the start of this method, I get the bounds by calling getBounds() and then I use the width and height to figure out where to draw. So far, I have assumed that the local drawing bounds are from 0,0 to width,height... Will that always be the case?
Also, I tried to call drawRect of the coordinates of the bounds rectangle but it is offset according to the canvas' location within its container Panel... Is there another method I can use to get the Canvas' "local" bounds?
