Hello guys, i am relatively new to the application world. I have one hopefully not to general of a question. What is the standard way in java to display collected results (for example if i am scanning for Bluetooth or WiFi devices and i want to display these collected results on my application so as to choose a desired device).

Welcome to CodeRanch Michael,

I hope that you find the community helpful, knowledgeable and sharing.

The "standard way" would be to present a listing with the strength for each item kind of like the following:
Location NameLocation Strength
<> Device Name 190%
<> Device Name 287%
<> Device Name 386%
<> Device Name 485%
<> Device Name 515%

Sometimes adding in color like a rich green color for the best result and a red color for least favorable result.
Clicking/touching the line would provide more detail and/or connect to it.

All that said, it is not always best to follow what everyone else is doing.

Or instead using a percentage you could use images/icons.
Kind of like the older cell phone commercials where they talk about bars:
  • Four bars is 100%
  • Three bars is 75%
  • Two bars is 50%
  • One bar is 25%

  • Or possibly using a progress bar.

    I'm pretty sure that we've seem many different versions of progress indicators.
