Trail: Creating a GUI with JFC/Swing

Lesson: Using Swing Components

This lesson describes every Swing component. All of these sections assume that you've successfully compiled and run a program that uses Swing components, and that you're familiar with Swing concepts. These prerequisites are covered in Getting Started with Swing (in the Creating a GUI with JFC/Swing trail) and Swing Features and Concepts (in the Creating a GUI with JFC/Swing trail).

A Visual Index to the Swing Components

This section has a picture of each Swing component, from top-level containers to intermediate containers to atomic components. To find the section that discusses a particular component, just click the component's picture.

The JComponent Class

Almost all Swing components inherit from the JComponent class. This section tells you about the features JComponent provides, and gives tips on how to take advantage of those features.

Using Top-Level Containers

Discusses how to create windows and applets.

How to Make/Use...

Sections on how to use each Swing component, in alphabetical order. For pictures and groupings of components, see A Visual Index to the Swing Components (in the Creating a GUI with JFC/Swing trail).

Solving Common Component Problems

This section discusses solutions to common component-related problems.
