Changed the logic the WindowManager places new frames on desktop if AutoPosition is selected.
If only one visible frame, center it on screen instead of position it at 0,0.
Fixed EDT violation in JConsole.
Fixed EDT violations, error handling and synchronization issues in JConsole.
Hi to all!
This is a minor release, primarily done to remove the obsolete “gr.zeus.ui.swingworker”. Please use the much better JDK6 SwingWorker instead!
The time has come to make the change to SVN.
CVS was just not good enough...
Please use the following URL with your favorite subversion client (TortoiseSVN does it for me...):
I finally got the time to commit some minor improvements and bug fixes found over the last 2 years. Check out the changelog for details.
Replaced old TableSorter with new, deprecating all old related classes.
Added functionality to dymanicaly resize a JTable based on it's header and it's data.
Finally upgraded TypeSafe with simple focus traversal using only the TAB key instead of CTRL+TAB for JTextArea, JTextPane and JEditorPane.
Added a few screens from the library examples.
Major usage redesign of JConsole. Moved most of the code to a new class, JConsolePane (JPanel). Also created a new class that uses this panel inside a JFrame (JConsole) and another one that uses the console inside a JInternalFrame.
Created new swing component: JMessage. Works like JOptionPane but can also display the stacktrace of an exception inside a textarea. Also can display plain text as well as html text as the message body, and much more.
Added new component: SwingConfigurationManager
This is actually a convenient method to use the "gr.zeus.ui.typesafe" package. It automatically configures your gui for data validation using a property file. This is a component that was missing from Swing and is usually found only in commercial libraries. With this component you can automatically:
- perform max and min character checks in fields
- trim spaces
- convert to uppercase/lowercase
- accept only a set of characters inside a field (valid chars)
- reject a set of characters inside a field (invalid chars)
- replace a set of characters with another (replaceable/replaced character pairs)
- convert, validate and limit check integer numbers: byte,short,int,long
- convert, validate and limit check real numbers: float,double
- convert and validate dates using a specified date pattern
Also you can enable/disable a selectAll functionality upon focus for any field.
Finally you can attach a custom Focus Traversal Policy that enables you to create a custom focus route for your fields, even if they exist in different containers.
And all these with minimal code inside your form and an external property file!
The major change for this release is the JConsole refactoring. Old versions of JConsole are not compartible with this one. Read the docs and check the tests in order to find out what's changed.
With this release i added javadocs for the library and made a couple of improvements to SingleAppInstance, WindowManager and OutLookToolBar. Also the code has been updated to use generics and is now 100% Java 1.5 compatible.
From now on only JDK 5 will be supported. Any one who is still stuck with the good old 1.4.2 please use zeus-jscl v1.05
This is actually a helper class rather than a swing component. Provides a simple solution to the multiple application instances problem. Just invoke onInit() at your application startup and onExit() at your application shutdown and that's all there is to it. SingleAppInstance creates and locks a file within the startup directory so if anyone is to execute your application again the second onInit() call fails with a message. The onExit() method unlocks and deletes the file. You can also customize the way SingleAppInstance informs the user, e.g via JOptionPane popup window or stderr. Finally, you can easily translate the popup messages without modifing any code.
Provides almost any functionality you need to manage all JInternalFrames within a JDesktop
Provides the mouse over looks of microsoft outlook toolbar buttons on a simple JToolBar
sort any JTable using it's headers easy!
a JTable cell renderer for progress bar display inside a table cell.
added functionality for percent or custom messages display during progress bar loading.
New component added!
JSplash provides a swing based solution for a splash screen with a simple progress bar for monitoring the application loading status.
just made the first release of zeus-jscl, only
one swing component for now: JConsole,
a java console replacement
