javax.sound.midi
Interface Transmitter


public interface Transmitter

A Transmitter sends MidiEvent sample code for javax.sound.midi.MidiEvent definition code for javax.sound.midi.MidiEvent objects to one or more Receivers sample code for javax.sound.midi.Receiver definition code for javax.sound.midi.Receiver . Common MIDI transmitters include sequencers and MIDI input ports.

Method Summary
 void close sample code for javax.sound.midi.Transmitter.close() definition code for javax.sound.midi.Transmitter.close() ()
          Indicates that the application has finished using the transmitter, and that limited resources it requires may be released or made available.
 Receiver sample code for javax.sound.midi.Receiver definition code for javax.sound.midi.Receiver getReceiver sample code for javax.sound.midi.Transmitter.getReceiver() definition code for javax.sound.midi.Transmitter.getReceiver() ()
          Obtains the current receiver to which this transmitter will deliver MIDI messages.
 void setReceiver sample code for javax.sound.midi.Transmitter.setReceiver(javax.sound.midi.Receiver) definition code for javax.sound.midi.Transmitter.setReceiver(javax.sound.midi.Receiver) (Receiver sample code for javax.sound.midi.Receiver definition code for javax.sound.midi.Receiver  receiver)
          Sets the receiver to which this transmitter will deliver MIDI messages.
 

Method Detail

setReceiver sample code for javax.sound.midi.Transmitter.setReceiver(javax.sound.midi.Receiver) definition code for javax.sound.midi.Transmitter.setReceiver(javax.sound.midi.Receiver)

void setReceiver(Receiver sample code for javax.sound.midi.Receiver definition code for javax.sound.midi.Receiver  receiver)
Sets the receiver to which this transmitter will deliver MIDI messages. If a receiver is currently set, it is replaced with this one.

Parameters:
receiver - the desired receiver.

getReceiver sample code for javax.sound.midi.Transmitter.getReceiver() definition code for javax.sound.midi.Transmitter.getReceiver()

Receiver sample code for javax.sound.midi.Receiver definition code for javax.sound.midi.Receiver  getReceiver()
Obtains the current receiver to which this transmitter will deliver MIDI messages.

Returns:
the current receiver. If no receiver is currently set, returns null

close sample code for javax.sound.midi.Transmitter.close() definition code for javax.sound.midi.Transmitter.close()

void close()
Indicates that the application has finished using the transmitter, and that limited resources it requires may be released or made available.

If the creation of this Transmitter resulted in implicitly opening the underlying device, the device is implicitly closed by this method. This is true unless the device is kept open by other Receiver or Transmitter instances that opened the device implicitly, and unless the device has been opened explicitly. If the device this Transmitter is retrieved from is closed explicitly by calling MidiDevice.close sample code for javax.sound.midi.MidiDevice.close() definition code for javax.sound.midi.MidiDevice.close() , the Transmitter is closed, too. For a detailed description of open/close behaviour see the class description of MidiDevice sample code for javax.sound.midi.MidiDevice definition code for javax.sound.midi.MidiDevice .
