Interface RenderableTextFactory

  • All Known Implementing Classes:
    ComplexTextFactory, DefaultRenderableTextFactory

    public interface RenderableTextFactory
    Problem: Text may span more than one chunk, and text may influence the break behaviour of the next chunk.

    Possible solution: TextFactory does not return the complete text. It returns the text up to the last whitespace encountered and returns the text chunk only if either finishText has been called or some more text comes in. The ugly sideffect: Text may result in more than one renderable text chunk returned.

    If we return lines (broken by an LineBreak-occurence) we can safe us a lot of trouble later.
