[JAVA2D] status bar

1 reply [Last post]

HI all,

I am trying to make a status bar for my Java2D application. I would
like it to be the typical small panel that resides at the bottom of most
windows applications, however, I can't seem to achieve that look. Is
there some kind of java class or function that creates that kind of
status bar, or do I just have to use a jpanel and customize it. If have
already begun using just a regular jpanel, but any internal frames I
have within the main frame always cover it up when dragged over it. So
if I must use the jpanel, how can I make it so that it is always on top
and not covered up by any internframes that are dragged downward to the
bottom of my main frame. Any suggestions or hints would be greatly
appreciated. Thanks.

David

JProgressBar has always worked pretty well for me. There are times when I've
also done a custom one, but the built-in one does a pretty decent job.
