I have an application that retrieves a lot of records from different tables in a database. It then creates different panels as tabs in a JTabbedPane to display the tables.
My problem is, I don't want it to finish pulling all the records before displaying the panels all at once. I want it to display each panel progressively as it populates it with records. I have tried the validate(), revalidate(), repaint() methods and it still won't work. Any help on this?

Sounds like you're trying to retrieve the records an update the GUI within the same thread.

Consider moving the database retrievals into a thread on their own (perhaps a SwingWorker), so that the GUI is free to update as you progress.

Hi Jimmack, I appreciate your advice. I was able to use the SwingWorker to thread different processes and my appliaction is working fine now. Thanks
