Hello everyone out there I hope someone can help me with this simple question!

I want to know if I can set up a variable to replace this:   .setHorizontalTextPosition(SwingConstants.LEFT);
                                                                      to this: .variable


jCheckBox1.setHorizontalTextPosition(SwingConstants.LEFT);

there is no such option available in Java.

you are asking like

with (textArea)
{
      .setText("A");
      .setLocation(10,10);
}

This is not available in java and is not pure object oriented then...



Regards,
Muruga

Setting a variable like this so I could type: jCheckBox1.textLeft instead of

jCheckBox1.setHorizontalTextPosition(SwingConstants.LEFT);

I was just curious is all?

no u cant do that.

you could create a helper method:

public class Utes
{
   public static textLeft(JCheckBox cb)
   {
      cb.setHorizontalTextPosition(SwingConstants.LEFT);
   }
}

you could then do:

Utes.textLeft(jCheckBox1);

the other option would be subclass JCheckBox:

public class MyCheckBox extends JCheckBox
{
   public void textLeft()
   {
      setHorizontalTextPosition(SwingConstants.LEFT);
   }
}
