Question about drop down lists from JComboBox within an applet   (189 Views)
When I click on the down arrow of a standard JComboBox in an applet and the list of strings are displayed, if I then drag the browser window, the drop down list stays in the same place instead of either being closed or moving with the browser window. I started noticing this when I started using Java 7, but I think this also occurs with Java 6 and 5. When run within the applet viewer in Eclipse, moving the applet window there closes the drop-down during the process of moving the window. Anybody else noticing this If so are any suggestions for a possible solution. Ideally I'd want the list to move with the browser window without the drop-down closing. My example code that demonstrates the problem is as follows: import javax.swing.JApplet; import javax.swing.JComboBox; public class ComboApplet extends JApplet { public void init () { String [] testStrings = new String [] {"This", "is", "a", "test"}; JComboBox comboBox = new JComboBox(testStrings); add(comboBox); } }

Question about programming style   (193 Views)
When creating a gui application or an applet, is there a standard about the best way to set up the code For example, is it better to layout the code like this public void init() { setLayout(null); output = new JTextField("This is a textfield", 100); output.setBounds(0, 0, 100, 50); add(output); one = new JButton("1"); one.setBounds(5, 40, 50, 50); add(one); two = new JButton("2"); two.setBounds(65, 40, 50, 50); add(two); }
Changing a border size   (54 Views)
I have an object that I want to be be a perfect square no matter how large the window gets, but I don't want it to be restricted to a certain size (aka, as big as it can get within the window). The problem is, I have an empty border for padding around it that I want to also adjust in proportion with the size. The problem is, every time I use setBorder() in the paint method (where I've been putting all my re-size code), it doesn't work. I think it's creating an infinite loop but I'm not sure. Anyone know what the problem is and how I can fix this

Question about Color and BufferedImage   (140 Views)
Hi , I'm trying to learn more about java computer graphics, and in my study I encountered following problem. Probably there is a simple solution to this, but I'm baffled. Here's the question, why the integers that represent color are not the same Also I noticed that when I change value 255 => 254 the integer of the color object gets recalculated but the one in the bufferedImage doesn't, why is that public static void main(String[] args) { Color c = new Color(255, 110, 75, 100); BufferedImage image = new BufferedImage(100, 100, BufferedImage.TYPE_INT_ARGB); Graphics g = image.getGraphics(); g.setColor(c); g.fillRect(0, 0, 100, 100); System.out.println(c.getRGB()); System.out.println(image.getRGB(40, 40)); } Console: 1694461515 1694461514
Doubt about layouts.. (its simple I think)   (149 Views)
My doubt is simple, I dont want to use AbsoluteLayout. So, I putted a Panel inside a frame on the West position using BordeLayout (default). Then I set the frame layout to BoxLayout (YAXIS). So I putted a JLabel and a JTextBox. I wanted it: Nome: [___________________________________] But the JTextBox extended until the border of the panel. How do I fix it

Question about GUI (with NetBeans IDE)   (173 Views)
. I want to ask about my vision for the GUI. I'm using NetBeans IDE to make it. My idea is something like this, we have a few JPanels with JLabels, and JButtons. First JPanel it's a menu and it is only visible JPanel at the application starts. When we click on the one of the buttons (let's say "Information") we change Menu JPanel Visibility to false, and the JPanel which include the "Information" is now Visible. The JPanel "Information" also has got JLabels and JButtons, and one of JButtons is a "Main Menu" which (when clicked) sets the Menu JPanel visibility as true, and set Information JPanel visibility as false. My second idea (which is just stupid ;>) is to remove all components on JButton click, and create new components. So in Menu JPanel we got JButton information. When we click it, we remove all components that are in Menu JPanel, and we create new components, that are needed in Information JPanel. I think that both ideas are terrible, but I have no other idea how to make it. I was thinking about web app, but I don't have such knowledge to create it.
Swing, awareness about unsaved data   (191 Views)
I am working on a Swing application for data maintenance (Java 6). There is a JFrame with several JTextFields. If the user is editing a record, there is UNSAVED data until she/he presses the Save-Button. The application should always be aware if there is unsaved data. How can this be done Best regards Gerald

Question about "Java Icons"   (107 Views)
I am creating an application, in this application, I need to use Icons like "copy", "paste", "cut" etc. Rather than using images of my own as Icons, I know there are some "Built In Icons' in Java. Anyway, According to my requirement, there should be at least two type of the same icon, for an example, "Copy Icon NORMAL" and "Copy icon MouseHover". Is there is any kind of FREE package which provide these Icons Apart from that, this is the first time I am gonna use these BUILT IN ICONS, so please tell me how to use these too.

How to make the window (JPanel?) bigger in gridbaglayout   (156 Views)

Absolute layout on nested panel   (70 Views)
I have a GUI in which I want absolute positioning within a subpanel. I'm using GridBagLayout elsewhere, including the parent. When I set the layout manager to null on a top level panel, everything works as I'm expecting. But, when trying to do the same on a subpanel, I get a blank panel (no visible controls). I've reduced this down to a code fragment (based on examples from the web) that can demonstrate this both ways by setting an (obviously named) boolean variable. Here's the code fragment: public static void addComponentsToContainer( JPanel panel ) { panel.setLayout( null ); JButton b1 = new JButton( "1" ); JButton b2 = new JButton( "2" ); JButton b3 = new JButton( "3" ); panel.add( b1 ); panel.add( b2 ); panel.add( b3 ); b1.setBounds( 10, 5, 60, 25 ); b2.setBounds( 30, 40, 60, 25 ); b3.setBounds( 50, 75, 60, 25 ); } public static void main( String[] args ) { JFrame frame = new JFrame(); JPanel parent = new JPanel(); JPanel panel = parent; boolean iWantItToFail = true; if ( iWantItToFail ) { JPanel child = new JPanel(); parent.add( child ); panel = child; } addComponentsToContainer( panel ); frame.setDefaultCloseOperation( JFrame.EXIT_ON_CLOSE ); frame.setContentPane( parent ); frame.setSize( 150, 150 ); frame.setVisible( true ); }

what layouts to use   (56 Views)
i finally came up with a small project to keep me busy for a while. i am writing a "copy" of windows Calculator program(in the standard view). if you have windows and could give your ideas on how to lay it out so it looks the same it would help some. so far, ignoring the menubar, i have a border layout with the TextField taking up north, and a panel with a grid layout taking center. however, this wont work because the top row has less components than the rest of the rows. maybe if i give the panel a border layout, add a panel to it in north with a flow layout, and a panel to it in center with a grid layout
