JInternalFrame repaint() problems

Posted on 1997-11-17

I have a JTree in a JInternalFrame and when the tree is clicked (i.e. expanded or collapsed), it does not get repainted. It behaves normally when used in a regular Frame. I've tried manually calling repaint() in the event handler of the tree mouse clicks - that didn't work either. Only when I drag, move or resize the JInternalFrame does the JTree get updated. Any ideas????

Trying calling invalidate() on the Tree in the
mouse click event handler.  

If you then validate() the tree again, the
tree should redraw.

I have not had a problem.  Here is some of my sample code for
building a simple tree and putting it is a JInternalFrame.
It works both with and without the scroll pane.

import com.sun.java.swing.*;
import com.sun.java.swing.tree.*;
import java.awt.*;

public class MyFrame extends JFrame
{
   public MyFrame()
   {
      setTitle( "JTree0" );
     
      // Store the content pane in a variable for easier access.

      JPanel contentPane = (JPanel)getContentPane();
      contentPane.setBackground( Color.lightGray );

      // Components will all be added to this panel.

      contentPane.setLayout( new BorderLayout() );

      DefaultMutableTreeNode root =
                  new DefaultMutableTreeNode( "President/CEO" );

      DefaultMutableTreeNode vp =
                  new DefaultMutableTreeNode( "Sales Vice-President" );
   
      DefaultMutableTreeNode drone =
                  new DefaultMutableTreeNode( "Sales Guy 1" );
      vp.add( drone );
      drone = new DefaultMutableTreeNode( "Sales Guy 2" );
      vp.add( drone );
      drone = new DefaultMutableTreeNode( "Sales Guy 3" );
      vp.add( drone );
     
      root.add( vp );
                 
      vp = new DefaultMutableTreeNode( "Development Vice-President" );
   
      drone = new DefaultMutableTreeNode( "Nerd 1" );
      vp.add( drone );
      drone = new DefaultMutableTreeNode( "Nerd 2" );
      vp.add( drone );
      drone = new DefaultMutableTreeNode( "Nerd 3" );
      vp.add( drone );
                 
      root.add( vp );
     
      JTree tree = new JTree( root );
     
      JScrollPane scroller = new JScrollPane( tree );
     
      JInternalFrame inFrame = new JInternalFrame( "Ok" );
      inFrame.setBounds( 50, 50, 200, 200 );
      inFrame.getContentPane().add( "Center", scroller );
     
      JDesktopPane desktop = new JDesktopPane();
      contentPane.add( "Center", desktop );
      desktop.add( inFrame );
   }

}
