Problem with JFileChooser.

Hi all,
one problem in JFileChooser.
When I use it as
JFileChooser filechooser=new JFileChooser();
Its takes time and searches the A drive also.
If there is no such drive it shows "A drive not found....... Abort,Retry...).How to solve this problem
of not searching the A drive.
When the applet is run in Explorer No problem.
But this problem arises only when I make use of AppletViewer

            javax.swing.filechooser.FileFilter all =
                chooser.getAcceptAllFileFilter();
            chooser.setFileFilter(all);
        }

    File parentFolder = f.getParentFile();
    if (parentFolder != null) chooser.setCurrentDirectory(parentFolder);

Hi maheswari, I had the same problem with JFileChoose. Is is e windows specific problem, because the JFileChooser seeks every root partion. (A: is a root partition)
I did not solve the problem because because less time :-)
but I think it deals with the "FileSystemView". (see ctor)
with instanciates a WindowsFileSystemView. Mybee you write your derived FileSystemView.

You just need to call:

chooser.setCurrentDirectory("c:\");

Or somehwere other than a:

maheswari the JFileCooser get by default every root partition.
Modify the tip form objects an try new JFileChooser ("c:");

yepp, write your own FileSystemView or (like me) live with the problem :-)

I think the problem is systems inherent in windows. Solve it (write your own FileSystemView) is hard work. But you should look in the implemention javax.swing.filechooser.FileSystemView.

you will find a function getRoots in the inner class WindowsFileSystemView, it contains:
>
FileSystemRoot floppy = new FileSystemRoot("A" + ":" + "\\");
         rootsVector.addElement(floppy);
<

Derive a new FileSystemView class and override the getRoot.

hope it helps.

Interesting !? I've never had this problem on my NT. What OS are you using ?? I've just tried this and it works fine

import javax.swing.*;
class FCH {
   public static void main(String[] a) {
      JFileChooser chooser = new JFileChooser();
       int returnVal = chooser.showOpenDialog(null);
       if(returnVal == JFileChooser.APPROVE_OPTION) {
          System.out.println("You chose to open this file: " +
               chooser.getSelectedFile().getName());
       }
   }//main
}

I have jdk1.3 and I still face the same problem.

It works fine with JWindow or JFrame

but creates problem only with JApplet and also consumes lot of time during initialisation
