I coded this applet to try out the html syntax for swing object labels.
I'm using jdk 1.6 update 22 and firefox

This applet works fine when I am viewing the applet for the first time. but if I reload the applet the labels with html syntax in them hides.

This is the code

package test;

import java.awt.*;
import javax.swing.*;

* @author priyal
public class NewJApplet extends JApplet {

public void init() {

JPanel panel = new JPanel();
panel.setPreferredSize(new Dimension(200, 200));
panel.setLayout(new GridBagLayout());

GridBagConstraints panelConstraints = new GridBagConstraints();
panelConstraints.anchor = GridBagConstraints.CENTER;
panelConstraints.weightx = 1.0;
panelConstraints.ipadx = 5;
panelConstraints.gridx = 0;
panelConstraints.gridy = 0;

JToolTip tt = new JToolTip();
tt.setPreferredSize(new Dimension(50, 20));

JButton button = new JButton("<html><u>Button</u></html>");
button.setPreferredSize(new Dimension(50, 50));

panel.add(button, panelConstraints);
panelConstraints.gridx = 1;
panelConstraints.gridy = 1;
panel.add(tt, panelConstraints);

JLabel label = new JLabel("<html><i>Label</i></html>");
panelConstraints.gridx = 0;
panelConstraints.gridy = 1;
panel.add(label, panelConstraints);


Please help...

Hi Priyal,

Did you ever find a solution to this? I have exactly the same problem. It is ok in older JVMs.

EDIT: This appears to be caused by or related to this bug in the JLabel.
