public class JSplitPane
extends JComponent
implements Accessible

JSplitPane is used to divide two (and only two) Components. The two Components are graphically divided based on the look and feel implementation, and the two Components can then be interactively resized by the user. Information on using JSplitPane is in How to Use Split Panes in The Java Tutorial.

The two Components in a split pane can be aligned left to right using JSplitPane.HORIZONTAL_SPLIT, or top to bottom using JSplitPane.VERTICAL_SPLIT. The preferred way to change the size of the Components is to invoke setDividerLocation where location is either the new x or y position, depending on the orientation of the JSplitPane.

To resize the Components to their preferred sizes invoke resetToPreferredSizes.

When the user is resizing the Components the minimum size of the Components is used to determine the maximum/minimum position the Components can be set to. If the minimum size of the two components is greater than the size of the split pane the divider will not allow you to resize it. To alter the minimum size of a JComponent, see JComponent.setMinimumSize(java.awt.Dimension).

When the user resizes the split pane the new space is distributed between the two components based on the resizeWeight property. A value of 0, the default, indicates the right/bottom component gets all the space, where as a value of 1 indicates the left/top component gets all the space.

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.

setContinuousLayout

public void setContinuousLayout(boolean newContinuousLayout)
Sets the value of the continuousLayout property, which must be true for the child components to be continuously redisplayed and laid out during user intervention. The default value of this property is false. Some look and feels might not support continuous layout; they will ignore this property.

isContinuousLayout

public boolean isContinuousLayout()
Gets the continuousLayout property.

Returns:

See Also:
setContinuousLayout(boolean)

setResizeWeight

public void setResizeWeight(double value)
Specifies how to distribute extra space when the size of the split pane changes. A value of 0, the default, indicates the right/bottom component gets all the extra space (the left/top component acts fixed), where as a value of 1 specifies the left/top component gets all the extra space (the right/bottom component acts fixed). Specifically, the left/top component gets (weight * diff) extra space and the right/bottom component gets (1 - weight) * diff extra space.

Parameters:
value - as described above

IllegalArgumentException - if value is < 0 or > 1
Since:

resetToPreferredSizes

public void resetToPreferredSizes()
Lays out the JSplitPane layout based on the preferred size of the children components. This will likely result in changing the divider location.


setDividerLocation

public void setDividerLocation(double proportionalLocation)
Sets the divider location as a percentage of the JSplitPane's size.

This method is implemented in terms of setDividerLocation(int). This method immediately changes the size of the split pane based on its current size. If the split pane is not correctly realized and on screen, this method will have no effect (new divider location will become (current size * proportionalLocation) which is 0).

Parameters:
proportionalLocation - a double-precision floating point value that specifies a percentage, from zero (top/left) to 1.0 (bottom/right)
Throws:
IllegalArgumentException - if the specified location is < 0 or > 1.0

setDividerLocation

public void setDividerLocation(int location)
Sets the location of the divider. This is passed off to the look and feel implementation, and then listeners are notified. A value less than 0 implies the divider should be reset to a value that attempts to honor the preferred size of the left/top component. After notifying the listeners, the last divider location is updated, via setLastDividerLocation.

Parameters:
location - an int specifying a UI-specific value (typically a pixel count)

getDividerLocation

public int getDividerLocation()
Returns the last value passed to setDividerLocation. The value returned from this method may differ from the actual divider location (if setDividerLocation was passed a value bigger than the curent size).

Returns:
an integer specifying the location of the divider

getMinimumDividerLocation

public int getMinimumDividerLocation()
Returns the minimum location of the divider from the look and feel implementation.

Returns:
an integer specifying a UI-specific value for the minimum location (typically a pixel count); or -1 if the UI is null

getMaximumDividerLocation

public int getMaximumDividerLocation()
Returns the maximum location of the divider from the look and feel implementation.

Returns:
an integer specifying a UI-specific value for the maximum location (typically a pixel count); or -1 if the UI is null

See Also:
Container.add(java.awt.Component), Container.remove(int)

Returns true, so that calls to revalidate on any descendant of this JSplitPane will cause a request to be queued that will validate the JSplitPane and all its descendants.

Overrides:
isValidateRoot in class JComponent
Returns:
true

Adds the specified component to this split pane. If constraints identifies the left/top or right/bottom child component, and a component with that identifier was previously added, it will be removed and then comp will be added in its place. If constraints is not one of the known identifiers the layout manager may throw an IllegalArgumentException.

The possible constraints objects (Strings) are:
