Is there an easy way to add a vertical line separator in JToolBar? The addSeparator() method just adds empty space and adding a JSeparator to the toolbar gives the desired look, but also adds empty space forcing the remaining components to the end of the screen.
In my GUI I have blank space as well. JToolBar has a nested class for tool bar specific separators, but it doesn't appear to have capability to set separators or make them visible. The result is the same with each of the following examples...
From the 1.4 API...
public static class JToolBar.Separator extends JSeparator A toolbar-specific separator. An object with dimension but no contents used to divide buttons on a tool bar into groups.
I guess since it has no contents it has nothing to display. Since you are using the JSeparator class instead of the JToolBar.Separator class, have you tried using JComponent's setPreferredSize( Dimension d ) method?
Wait a minute, I'm trying to think of something clever to say...<p>Joel

I set the size on the JSeparator, but it had no effect. Jeremy
