Added JTable to JFrame... now can't add other components [message #113261] Thu, 15 December 2005 03:40 Go to next message

Using the Visual Editor, I added a JTable to a JFrame. I added it to the
"Center". However, after doing this, I cannot add any other components to
the JFrame.

Is this due to something I'm doing wrong or a misunderstanding on my part of
how JTables & JFrames work?

I found the problem.

It looks like the generated code was setting the content pane
(JFrame::setContentPane()) to the JScrollPane instance rather than adding it
(JFrame::add())

Sorry, obviously a newbie here -- to both Swing & VE

You do not add to the JFrame itself. That is invalid. You must add only
to the content pane. If it doesn't already have a content pane you
should use the context menu on the JFrame and select the create content
pane menu item. then you can drop on the content pane.
