public class JProgressBar
extends JComponent
implements SwingConstants, Accessible

A component that visually displays the progress of some task. As the task progresses towards completion, the progress bar displays the task's percentage of completion. This percentage is typically represented visually by a rectangle which starts out empty and gradually becomes filled in as the task progresses. In addition, the progress bar can display a textual representation of this percentage.

JProgressBar uses a BoundedRangeModel as its data model, with the value property representing the "current" state of the task, and the minimum and maximum properties representing the beginning and end points, respectively.

To indicate that a task of unknown length is executing, you can put a progress bar into indeterminate mode. While the bar is in indeterminate mode, it animates constantly to show that work is occurring. As soon as you can determine the task's length and amount of progress, you should update the progress bar's value and switch it back to determinate mode.

Here is an example of creating a progress bar, where task is an object (representing some piece of work) which returns information about the progress of the task:

progressBar = new JProgressBar(0, task.getLengthOfTask());
progressBar.setValue(0);
progressBar.setStringPainted(true);
Here is an example of querying the current state of the task, and using the returned value to update the progress bar:
progressBar.setValue(task.getCurrent());
Here is an example of putting a progress bar into indeterminate mode, and then switching back to determinate mode once the length of the task is known:
progressBar = new JProgressBar();
...//when the task of (initially) unknown length begins:
progressBar.setIndeterminate(true);
...//do some work; get length of task...
progressBar.setMaximum(newLength);
progressBar.setValue(newValue);
progressBar.setIndeterminate(false);

For complete examples and further documentation see How to Monitor Progress, a section in The Java Tutorial.

Warning: Swing is not thread safe. For more information see Swing's Threading Policy.

Warning: Serialized objects of this class will not be compatible with future Swing releases. The current serialization support is appropriate for short term storage or RMI between applications running the same version of Swing. As of 1.4, support for long term storage of all JavaBeansTM has been added to the java.beans package. Please see XMLEncoder.

Field Detail

orientation

protected int orientation
Whether the progress bar is horizontal or vertical. The default is HORIZONTAL.

See Also:
setOrientation(int)

paintBorder

protected boolean paintBorder
Whether to display a border around the progress bar. The default is true.

See Also:
setBorderPainted(boolean)

model

protected BoundedRangeModel model
The object that holds the data for the progress bar.

See Also:
setModel(javax.swing.BoundedRangeModel)

progressString

protected String progressString
An optional string that can be displayed on the progress bar. The default is null. Setting this to a non-null value does not imply that the string will be displayed. To display the string, paintString must be true.

See Also:
setString(java.lang.String), setStringPainted(boolean)

paintString

protected boolean paintString
Whether to display a string of text on the progress bar. The default is false. Setting this to true causes a textual display of the progress to be rendered on the progress bar. If the progressString is null, the percentage of completion is displayed on the progress bar. Otherwise, the progressString is rendered on the progress bar.

See Also:
setStringPainted(boolean), setString(java.lang.String)

changeEvent

protected transient ChangeEvent changeEvent
Only one ChangeEvent is needed per instance since the event's only interesting property is the immutable source, which is the progress bar. The event is lazily created the first time that an event notification is fired.

See Also:
fireStateChanged()

changeListener

protected ChangeListener changeListener
Listens for change events sent by the progress bar's model, redispatching them to change-event listeners registered upon this progress bar.

See Also:
createChangeListener()

Returns:
HORIZONTAL or VERTICAL
See Also:
setOrientation(int)

setOrientation

the value of the stringPainted property
See Also:
setStringPainted(boolean), setString(java.lang.String)

setStringPainted

public void setStringPainted(boolean b)
Sets the value of the stringPainted property, which determines whether the progress bar should render a progress string. The default is false, meaning no string is painted. Some look and feels might not support progress strings or might support them only when the progress bar is in determinate mode.

Parameters:
b - true if the progress bar should render a string
See Also:
isStringPainted(), setString(java.lang.String)

getString

public String getString()
Returns a String representation of the current progress. By default, this returns a simple percentage String based on the value returned from getPercentComplete. An example would be the "42%". You can change this by calling setString.

Returns:
the value of the progress string, or a simple percentage string if the progress string is null
See Also:
setString(java.lang.String)

setString

public void setString(String s)
Sets the value of the progress string. By default, this string is null, implying the built-in behavior of using a simple percent string. If you have provided a custom progress string and want to revert to the built-in behavior, set the string back to null.

The progress string is painted only if the isStringPainted method returns true.

Parameters:
s - the value of the progress string
See Also:
getString(), setStringPainted(boolean), isStringPainted()

getPercentComplete

public double getPercentComplete()
Returns the percent complete for the progress bar. Note that this number is between 0.0 and 1.0.

public boolean isBorderPainted()
Returns the borderPainted property.

Returns:
the value of the borderPainted property
See Also:
setBorderPainted(boolean)

setBorderPainted

public void setBorderPainted(boolean b)
Sets the borderPainted property, which is true if the progress bar should paint its border. The default value for this property is true. Some look and feels might not implement painted borders; they will ignore this property.

Parameters:
b - true if the progress bar should paint its border; otherwise, false
See Also:
isBorderPainted()

paintBorder

protected void paintBorder(Graphics g)
Paints the progress bar's border if the borderPainted property is true.

createChangeListener

protected ChangeListener createChangeListener()

The default ChangeListener simply calls the fireStateChanged method to forward ChangeEvents to the ChangeListeners that have been added directly to the progress bar.

See Also:
changeListener, fireStateChanged(), ChangeListener, BoundedRangeModel

addChangeListener

public void addChangeListener(ChangeListener l)
Adds the specified ChangeListener to the progress bar.
