Could anyone tell me is there a known bug in ProgressBar code in the swing package?

Im getting the following exception

Exception in thread "AWT-EventQueue-0" java.lang.NullPointerException
      at javax.swing.plaf.basic.BasicProgressBarUI.updateSizes(BasicProgressBarUI.java:428)
      at javax.swing.plaf.basic.BasicProgressBarUI.getBox(BasicProgressBarUI.java:385)
      at com.sun.java.swing.plaf.windows.WindowsProgressBarUI.paintIndeterminate(WindowsProgressBarUI.java:156)
      at javax.swing.plaf.basic.BasicProgressBarUI.paint(BasicProgressBarUI.java:350)
)

If there is, could you give me a link to where it has been reported?

Thanks a mill

Hi objects

I saw that bug alright.....
They had a subclass of JProgressBar that overrides setIndeterminate() and isIndeterminate() - that was the root of the problem there.

I am actually just using JProgressBar so dont think that bug applies to me.

so you're not doing anything exotic?
One thing to check is that you aren't updating the progress bar from a thread other than the event dispatch thread.
If you're not then probleably worth reporting as a bug.

The exception isn't thrown all the time......

If it was the case that the progress bar was being updated by a thread other than the event dispatch thread - I assume the exception would be thrown everytime???

not at all, in fact the opposite. Updating the gui from a different thread *will* result in random exceptions.
