public interface FlyView
A view can be rendered differently in various rendering contexts. Rendering contexts can affect measurements done by the view. Therefore there are methods that can replicate the view into a new instance in a particular context.
Flyweight views cannot hold a reference to parent
getParent() returns null.
A call to
setParent() would throw an exception.
getStartOffset() always returns 0.
getEndOffset() returns length of the text
that they represent.
getContainer() always returns null.
