Setting the Paint Mode
The paint mode determines how objects are drawn in a window. By default, new output to
a window overwrites any preexisting contents. However, it is possible to have new objects
XORed onto the window by using setXORMode( ), as follows:
void setXORMode(Color xorColor)
Here, xorColor specifies the color that will be XORed to the window when an object is drawn.
The advantage of XOR mode is that the new object is always guaranteed to be visible no matter
what color the object is drawn over.
To return to overwrite mode, call setPaintMode( ), shown here:
void setPaintMode( )
In general, you will want to use overwrite mode for normal output, and XOR mode for special
purposes. For example, the following program displays cross hairs that track the mouse
pointer. The cross hairs are XORed onto the window and are always visible, no matter what
the underlying color is.
