Alternatively, to compile and run the example yourself, consult the example index. The user must explicitly deselect items.

See Positioning the Divider and Restricting its Windowbuolder for details. While the JPanel is highlighted, go to the Properties window and click the ellipsis Go through the following steps to see how event handling works.

Right click the Exit yutorial. You can process these events by adding a list selection listener to the list with the addListSelectionListener method. Examples and practices described in this page don’t take advantage of improvements introduced in later releases. Here is the ListDemo code that creates a mutable list model object, puts the initial items in it, and uses the list model to create a list:.

We are going to have the Clear button erase all text from the jTextFields. If the tuforial pane isn’t displayed at this preferred size and the program hasn’t set the divider’s location explicitly, then the initial position of the divider and thus the sizes of the two components depends on a split pane property called the resize weight.

Another situation in which absolute positioning might make sense is that of a custom container that performs size and position calculations that are particular to futorial container, and perhaps require knowledge of the container’s specialized state.
