public class ListSelectionEvent
extends EventObject
An event that characterizes a change in the current selection. The change is limited to a row interval. ListSelectionListeners will generally query the source of the event for the new selected status of each potentially changed row.

Warning: serialized objects of this class will not be compatible with future swing releases. The current serialization support is appropriate for short term storage or RMI between Swing1.0 applications. It will not be possible to load serialized Swing1.0 objects with future releases of Swing. The JDK1.2 release of Swing will be the compatibility baseline for the serialized form of Swing objects.

Constructor Detail


public ListSelectionEvent(Object source,
                          int firstIndex,
                          int lastIndex,
                          boolean isAdjusting)
Represents a change in selection status between firstIndex and lastIndex inclusive (firstIndex is less than or equal to lastIndex). Atleast one of the rows within the range will have changed, a good ListSelectionModel implementation will keep the range as small as possible.
firstIndex - The first index that changed.
lastIndex - The last index that changed, lastIndex >= firstIndex.
isAdjusting - An indication that this is one of rapid a series of events
Method Detail


public int getFirstIndex()

public int getLastIndex()
