No mnemonic displayed in tooltip?

all! We recently upgraded from the 1.4.2 line of the JDK to the latest Java 6 version (repeat after me, "Generics are easy, the syntax is beautiful . One change I cannot figure out is the loss of the "accelerator" keys from the tooltips. Using 1.4.2, the tooltips would display as "This is your tooltip ", with "K" being your defined mnemonic for the button, etc. I am (unfortunately) using the Metal look and feel, so I checked the UIDefaults, and the listed value "ToolTip.hideAccelerator=false" seems like they should still show up Does anyone know if this was changed on purpose, or how to get the mnemonic back into the tooltips

Retrieving tooltiptext from a game....

i have an application where... the mouse moves around randomly in an 800X600 space. and everytime it moves, it clicks... so it moves and clicks every 6 seconds... and every.... 4 min, it presses F1. now what i want to do is get the cursor to actually look for an object by using the tooltiptext above the object to determine rather or not it should click on it.... any advice, here is my code import java.awt.*; import java.awt.event.*; import javax.swing.*; class COB extends JFrame { int count = 0; javax.swing.Timer timer; Robot robot; boolean first = true; public COB() { getContentPane().add(new StartPanel()); setDefaultCloseOperation(EXIT_ON_CLOSE); setSize(800,600); setVisible(true); changeCursorLocation(); } public void changeCursorLocation() { try { robot = new Robot(); final int W = 800; final int H = 600; ActionListener al = new ActionListener(){ public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent ae){ // dont want it to stop until i close it.. //robot.keyPress(KeyEvent.VK_CONTROL); robot.mouseMove((int)(Math.random()*W), (int)(Math.random()*H)); count ++; if(count == 166) { robot.keyPress(KeyEvent.VK_F1); robot.keyPress(KeyEvent.VK_F1); count = 0; } robot.mousePress(InputEvent.BUTTON1_MASK); robot.mouseRelease(InputEvent.BUTTON1_MASK); } }; timer = new javax.swing.Timer(6000,al); } catch(Exception e){e.printStackTrace();} } public class StartPanel extends JPanel { JButton start,stop; public StartPanel() { JLabel program = new JLabel("Beta V1.0"); JLabel name = new JLabel("By: Monk, 08/28/06"); start = new JButton("Start Bot"); start.addActionListener(new ButtonListener()); stop = new JButton("Stop Bot"); stop.addActionListener(new ButtonListener2()); program.setVerticalAlignment(SwingConstants.BOTTOM); add(start); add(stop); add(program); add(name); setBackground(Color.white); } public class ButtonListener implements ActionListener { public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent event) { timer.start(); } } public class ButtonListener2 implements ActionListener { public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent event) { timer.stop(); } } } public static void main(String[] args){new COB();} }

Setting dynamic tooltips for a vector

, I'm trying to dynamically set tooltips on the titles of the columns in a table, but whenever i try to do this it gives me the following code errors. Here is the code: private void initColumns() { columns = new Vector(); DataDictionaryModel[] ddm = cam.getDDModel(); this.ddm = ddm; for (int i = 0; i < ddm.length; i++) { columns.add(ddm[i].getDisplayName()); String tooltip = ddm[i].getToolTip(); //The method add(Object) in the type Vector is not applicable for the arguments (void) columns.add(setToolTipText(tooltip)); } } //I have also tried it like: columns.setToolTipText(tooltip); // and it tells me: The method setToolTipText(String) is undefined for the type Vector

Double JList for Selection Panel with editable fields

I'm not entirely sure how to describe this, but the widget should allow users to set up how they want a table to look. There is a list of available columns, and they have to choose which are visible, and of those that are visible they set how wide the column is, and a number indicating sort order. Sooooo.... I have been tasked to create two JList boxes, one for NOT visible columns and one for visible columsn. In between would be the "" buttons you often see that allow you to move the items back and forth from one list to another. In the "visible" JList, each item should ALSO have editable fields for entering the width & sort order. The not-visible JList should not show those fields. My questions are: 1. What do you call that thing when there are two JLists & the "" buttons in between That might make my search easier... 2. Can I do this with JLists...or do I need to try to implement this with two tiny tables (And just make it look like JLists) Any suggestions on where to start\t See silly image I made in Paint below: THANK YOU!!!

Why can't I get tooltip to show up when text in JTextField certain length?

I want to make a JToolTip show up (and formatted a certain way) when the text in a JTextField gets to a length beyond the visible horizontal length. I can make a window show up in this situation (i.e. I know how to test for the condition) but I can't get a tool tip to show up. I tried registering the text field with the ToolTipManager and then getting the "postTip" action and firing it's actionPerformed, but it didn't work. Any idea if there's a way JToolTip tip = textField.createToolTip(); ToolTipManager.sharedInstance().registerComponent( textField ); tip.setTipText( "blah" ); Action showAction = textField.getActionMap().get( "postTip" ); showAction.actionPerformed( new ActionEvent( textField, 0, ( String ) showAction.getValue( Action.NAME ) );

table row height

I have a JTable with a comboBox as a cell editor. This works fine but looks a little bad. The comboBox needs to be editable. When the user clicks on a cloumn in the table whose editor is the combo box, it appears to be not tall enough. Here are some code snippets to show you what I mean: [code] // create the table final JTable table = new JTable(new MyTableModel( )); // create the combo box JComboBox acctsComboBox = new JComboBox(theAccounts); acctsComboBox.setEditable( true ); // set the editor TableColumn descColumn = table.getColumnModel().getColumn(2); descColumn.setCellEditor(new DefaultCellEditor( acctsComboBox )); // adjust the width of the column int preferredWidth = getWidestEntry( acctsComboBox, table.getFontMetrics(table.getFont()), table.getGraphics()); if (preferredWidth >= 0) descColumn.setPreferredWidth( preferredWidth ); [\code]
