Returns:
a flag indicating whether this link is still valid with respect to the AccessibleHypertext it belongs to

getAccessibleActionCount

public abstract int getAccessibleActionCount()
Returns the number of accessible actions available in this Link If there are more than one, the first one is NOT considered the "default" action of this LINK object (e.g. in an HTML imagemap). In general, links will have only one AccessibleAction in them.

Specified by:
getAccessibleActionCount in interface AccessibleAction
Returns:
the zero-based number of Actions in this object

doAccessibleAction

public abstract boolean doAccessibleAction(int i)
Performs the specified Action on the object

Specified by:
doAccessibleAction in interface AccessibleAction
Parameters:
i - zero-based index of actions
Returns:
true if the action was performed; otherwise false.
See Also:
getAccessibleActionCount()

getAccessibleActionDescription

public abstract String getAccessibleActionDescription(int i)
Returns a String description of this particular link action. This should be a text string associated with anchoring text, this should be the anchor text. E.g. from HTML: <a HREF="http://www.sun.com/access">Accessibility</a> this method would return "Accessibility". Similarly, from this HTML: <a HREF="#top"><img src="top-hat.gif" alt="top hat"></a> this method would return "top hat"

Specified by:
getAccessibleActionDescription in interface AccessibleAction
Parameters:
i - zero-based index of the actions
Returns:
a String description of the action

Returns an object that represents the link action, as appropriate for that link. E.g. from HTML: <a HREF="http://www.sun.com/access">Accessibility</a> this method would return a java.net.URL("http://www.sun.com/access.html");

Parameters:
i - zero-based index of the actions
Returns:
an Object representing the hypertext link itself
See Also:
getAccessibleActionCount()

getAccessibleActionAnchor

public abstract Object getAccessibleActionAnchor(int i)
Returns an object that represents the link anchor, as appropriate for that link. E.g. from HTML: <a href="http://www.sun.com/access">Accessibility</a> this method would return a String containing the text: "Accessibility". Similarly, from this HTML: <a HREF="#top"><img src="top-hat.gif" alt="top hat"></a> this might return the object ImageIcon("top-hat.gif", "top hat");

Parameters:
i - zero-based index of the actions
Returns:
an Object representing the hypertext anchor
See Also:
getAccessibleActionCount()

getStartIndex

public abstract int getStartIndex()
Gets the index with the hypertext document at which this link begins

Returns:
