JSpinner not spinning

I have the following code that creates a JSpinner.  However, the JSpinner doesn't spin as expected (by DATE) -- it doesn't spin at all.  If you see anything wrong, please suggest a fix.

      GregorianCalendar calendar = new GregorianCalendar ();
      calendar.add (Calendar.DATE, -1); // Todays date minus one day (data is always one day behind);
      Date initDate = calendar.getTime ();
      calendar.add (Calendar.DATE, -14);
      Date earliestDate = calendar.getTime ();
      Date latestDate = initDate;

      SpinnerDateModel dateModel
        = new SpinnerDateModel (initDate,
                                earliestDate,
                                latestDate,
                                Calendar.DATE);
     
      dateFrom = new JSpinner (dateModel);
      dateFrom.setEditor (new JSpinner.DateEditor(dateFrom, "MM/dd/yy"));
 
      dateTo = new JSpinner (dateModel);
      dateTo.setEditor (new JSpinner.DateEditor (dateTo, "MM/dd/yy"));

It seems that Calendar.DATE is not a legal value for the last parameter of the SpinnerDateModel's contructor. Try Calendar.DAY_OF_WEEK instead.

too true

the calanderField element of the constructor is the amount by which the date increments or decrements as you spin.

calendarField can be one of
Calendar.ERA
Calendar.YEAR
Calendar.MONTH
Calendar.WEEK_OF_YEAR
Calendar.WEEK_OF_MONTH
Calendar.DAY_OF_MONTH
Calendar.DAY_OF_YEAR
Calendar.DAY_OF_WEEK
Calendar.DAY_OF_WEEK_IN_MONTH
Calendar.AM_PM
Calendar.HOUR
Calendar.HOUR_OF_DAY
Calendar.MINUTE
Calendar.SECOND
Calendar.MILLISECOND

Thanks for the suggestion, but after changing that value, the spinner still doesn't spin.  Any other suggestions?  I'm clueless right now!

here's a thought

just to test it...

      Integer[] tst = {new Integer(1), new Integer(2), new Integer(3)};
      SpinnerListModel model = new SpinnerListModel(tst);

try this, although by all rights your code should work.

      GregorianCalendar calendar = new GregorianCalendar ();

      Date latestDate = calendar.getTime ();
      calendar.add (Calendar.DATE, -1); // Todays date minus one day (data is always one day behind);
      Date initDate = calendar.getTime ();
      calendar.add (Calendar.DATE, -14);
      Date earliestDate = calendar.getTime ();

      SpinnerDateModel dateModel
        = new SpinnerDateModel (initDate,
                                earliestDate,
                                latestDate,
                                Calendar.DATE);
