I have the following problem: I want to save and load the position of JSplitDevider.
I have JSplitPane. After I dragged the SplitDevider, I save its position by invoking
After some actions, I build new JsplitPane and want to put its devider in the location, saved before, so I invoke
setDeviderPosition(), but the devider seems to be set in its preferred position.
What should I do to set it correct.
Thanx in advance.

Have you checked that the value you save is actually something else than the preferred starting position?

Can you post some code?

Try to call revalidate() on your JSplitPane instance after the call to setDeviderPosition().

Try to call the validate() method of the container of the JSplitPane after set the setDeviderLocation( val ). FOr e.g., if the "spliterPane" is added to a frame "frame", then,

   spliterPane.setDeviderPosition( 100 ) ;
   frame.validate() ;
