Customizing BalloonTip

Postby td84 » Tue Jun 21, 2016 1:28 am

Hello,

i would like to use BalloonTip in a project. It works good. I would like to modify 2 things:
1) the arrow should have another location, like on the image
2) if someone clicks somewhere in the application, the baloon closes. I would like to prohibit this.

For the 1) i created a class that implements BalloonShape, and returned from the function getHotSpot() some other values, but the arrow didn't change.

Can you help me?

Thanx in advance,
Daniel

1) A quick way to figure out what BalloonTip can do is to run BalloonTipDemo and select different options and click on the show button to see what balloon tip looks like. Then you can see the source code to find out what API to use to get what you want. It looks like to me all you need to do is to set the balloon position to bottom (the setPosition method on RoundedRectangularBalloonShape).
2) You can do this. You can add a component to the popup so that when user clicks on that components, the popup will not be hidden. Since you want it to apply to all components, I had to override isExcludedComponent method to always return true.

Code: Select all
       _balloonTip = new BalloonTip(createToolTipContent()) {
            @Override
            protected JidePopup createPopup() {
                return new JidePopup() {
                    @Override
                    public boolean isClickOnPopup(MouseEvent e) {
                        Point p = e.getPoint();
                        Point point = SwingUtilities.convertPoint((Component) e.getSource(), p, getContent().getParent());
                        return getContent().getParent().contains(point);
                    }

                    @Override
                    public boolean isExcludedComponent(Component component) {
                        return true;
                    }
                };
            }
        };

Thank you for the answeer.
1) It worked. Nice :-) I had to disassemble the java code to find out the value of BOTTOM. It seems, there is no public field in the class RoundedRectangularBalloonShape.

2) This didn't work for me. If i click outside of the balloon, it still get's closed.
I tryed also to overwrite hide() and setVisible() in the codeblock "return new JidePopup() {}" but this also not worked.
Is there a function in JidePopup(), that get's called, if it's closing?
Maybe each time reopen the balloon, if this fucntion get's called?

2) I used the same code in BalloonTipDemo and it works for me.

I used an older release, and therefore it didn't work.
Thanx again, it works :-)
It closes only if i move the window by dragging with the mouse or i set it to full-window mode.
But this is absolutely no problem for me :-)

Dear Developers,

thanx again for your support.
The Balloon works fine. Sometimes it overlaps other GUI elements.
Is there a way to reduce the padding between the edges of the Balloon and the text (as marked with arrows on the attachment)?

Thank you again,
Daniel

I figured out, how to do it :-)
The function "public Insets getInsets(Dimension contentSize)@BalloonShape" had to be overridden:
Code: Select all
msg = new BalloonTip( lbl ) {      
    @Override public BalloonShape getBalloonShape() {
      RoundedRectangularBalloonShape bshape = new RoundedRectangularBalloonShape() {
         @Override public Insets getInsets(Dimension contentSize) {
            return new Insets(a,b,c,d); //a,b,c,d  must be replaced
         }
      };
      return bshape;
     }
};

Sorry I missed your original post. I am glad you figured out yourself.
