Interface com.sun.java.swing.UIDefaults.LazyValue


public abstract static interface UIDefaults.LazyValue
This class enables one to store an entry in the defaults table that isn't constructed until the first time it's looked up with one of the getXXX(key) methods. Lazy values are useful for defaults that are expensive to construct or are seldom retrieved. The first time a LazyValue is retrieved its "real value" is computed by calling LazyValue.createValue() and the real value is used to replace the LazyValue in the UIDefaults table. Subsequent lookups for the same key return the real value. Here's an example of a LazyValue that constructs a Border:
  Object borderLazyValue = new UIDefaults.LazyValue() {
      public Object createValue(UIDefaults table) {
          return new BorderFactory.createLoweredBevelBorder();
      }
  };

  uiDefaultsTable.put("MyBorder", borderLazyValue);
