public static void resButton(javax.swing.AbstractButton button,
                             java.lang.String labelText)
Sets the resourcs on a subclass of AbstractButton. The common classes are JRadioButton, JButton, and JCheckBox

This method sets the text and mnemonic.

button - The button on which to set the text and mnemonoic

AbstractButton.setText(String), AbstractButton.setMnemonic(int)


public static int getMnemonicKeyCode(java.lang.String string)
Returns the key code for the mnemonic in the string. Returns VK_UNDEFINED if the string does not contain a mnemonic.


public static java.lang.String stripMnemonic(java.lang.String string)
Removes non-displayable inline mnemonic characters.

In order to specify a mnemonic character in a translatable string (eg. in a resource file), a special character is used to indicate which character in the string should be treated as the mnemonic. This method assumes that an ampersand ('&') character is used as the mnemonic indicator, and removes (single) ampersands from the input string. A double ampersand sequence is used to indicate that an ampersand should actually appear in the output stream, in which case one of the ampersands is removed.
