Java Swing status bar

by cdumitru In reply to how to set status bar in ...

The Swing library doesn't have a specific component for statusbar. The hack is you create a ordinary component- say JPanel - and set its border to LOWERED - BevelBorder. Then add this component to the SOUTH of your BorderLayouted JFrame.

import javax.swing.*;
import javax.swing.border.*;


JPanel jp_status = new JPanel();
jp_status.setLayout(new BorderLayout());
jp_status.add(new JLabel("Subhash"), BorderLayout.CENTER);

jp_status.setBorder(new BevelBorder(BevelBorder.LOWERED));

// ``ct'' is the Container of JFrame
