    JSlider...

    Can't get the JSlider to work, why ?


    Code:

    Re: JSlider...

    And how does it not work? As I recall, default LayoutManager for JFrame is BorderLayout and your spelling of the constants there is correct, so I suppose the slider does show. However, that said, use the constant variable instead of literal String where ever possible... such as BorderLayout.CENTER and not "Center".

    What is your slider supposed to do? You have methods for moving the ball (flytta) and drawing the ball (rita), but they are not called in any of the code you have. You get informed through the change listener when the slider is adjusted, why not call the necessary methods then? (adjust the variables, and call repaint on whichever component uses those variables.)

    You should repost with more accurate information, what is the slider supposed to do? How is the change information propagated into actual drawing done on the expected panel (a Rummet?), and how does the panel handle the balls now. I suspect, you change the variables, but it does not mean, that a repaint just magically knows to happen.

    Lastly....
    It is not a long lasting principle to combine controls (such as slider) and model objects (such as ball) together. Develop concept such as "selectedBall", this you can do, by adding a mouseListener to the panel where you draw, iterate over the Balls you have and check which ones bounds rectangle contained the mouse events point.

    Notify the mainpanel of the selection change, there forward that information to whoever needs to know (such as the slider). Upon recieving the change information, slider will update to given ball instance and so forth. Keep your code close to the bone, if you need a slider to adjust the value of the ball, extend slider to an implementation that handles a ball. Personally I do not see sense in why you would want to have methods relating to painting of a different component (rita), or managing the actual moving of a ball (flytta) inside your slider. So not, its responsibility.

    Re: JSlider...

    I want to change the speed of the balls, nothing happens when I drag the slider...

    Ok, have changed now to BorderLayout.CENTER and BorderLayout.SOUTH, thanks!

    Can post everything, all my files.

    I only want to change the speed of the balls, therefore I have:
    public void stateChanged (ChangeEvent e)
    {
    Object kallan = e.getSource();
    Slider slide = (Slider) kallan;

    dx = slide.getValue(); // Then what?
    dy = slide.getValue(); // and here ?
    }



    MAIN
    Code:
    import java.awt.*;
    import javax.swing.*;
    import java.util.Random;
    
    public class Main
    {
        public static void main(String[] args)
        {
             Boll b = new Boll ();
             JFrame ramen = new JFrame ("Flying things...");
             ramen.setSize(800, 640);
             ramen.setLocationRelativeTo(null);
             ramen.setDefaultCloseOperation(JFrame.EXIT_ON_CLOSE);
    
             Rummet rum = new Rummet ();
             ramen.add(rum, BorderLayout.CENTER);
             
             ramen.setVisible(true);
             ramen.setResizable(false);
    
             ramen.add(b.linjal (), BorderLayout.SOUTH);
    
             Random farg = new Random ();
    
             while (true)
             {
                int rod = farg.nextInt (256);
                int gron = farg.nextInt (256);
                int bla = farg.nextInt (256);
                Color farger = new Color (rod, gron, bla);
    
                b = new Boll (farger);
                rum.läggTillRitaBoll(b);

    Re: JSlider...

    Why is the slider part of the Ball class, it has nothing to do with this class.

    Your problem is you are adding the slider from a ball but then you are creating another ball which you are doing something with. The new ball has it's own slider which is a different slider to the one you have added to the screen and hence it's stateChanged() method is never being called.

    Re: JSlider...

    Ok, have moved it now. But I have tried everything now, and I can't solve it :-(
    Really need help with this one.

    Re: JSlider...

    Where have you moved it to and have you added the correct ball as a listener?Post your current code so we can see what you have changed.
