You'll have to create your own dialog if you want customized input fields. JOptionPane can't handle this by default.

One of the first examples in chapter 13 here: http://www.spindoczine.com/sbe involves a JProgressBar that takes a few seconds to complete.. i think this will have what you are looking for

sounds like your table model data is not getting updated properly. Can you post sample code that demonstrates this?
Thanks,

Painting should occur flawlessly if you have your application threaded properly. Make sure none of your event-handling code is taking lots of time... if so use separate threads to avoid slowing down the event-dispatching thread.

One way is to override your table's getCellRenderer and getCellEditor methods check the row and column and return the renderer or editor you'd like to use for that particular cell

JDK1.4, codenamed Merlin, has significant changes and additions in store for Swing. See http://java.sun.com/products/jfc/tsc/articles/merlin/index.html for a complete overview...
Thanks,

You shouldn't be putting multiple components in a single cell. I would reevaluate your design. Renderers should be as simple as possible.

I'm not familiar with color differences/problems from platform to platform. But in the past I've seen people have problems with Swing applications if they were running 256 colors or lower... I would check your Solaris graphics setup and make sure you are using lots of colors

I don't think most people here are familiar with an "RTree" concept... at least I am not. Not sure I can be of any help unless you provide more detail.

You can check with a System.out.println statement..

In chapter 13 of "Swing" we build a custom scroll pane. You can easily modify this to place the scroll bars differently. See http://www.spindoczine.com/sbe

Sounds like the problem could be within their calendar component itself. I would report it to Semantec or check their support to see if its a known issue...

This is something you cannot do up through JDK1.3 unless you extend the Window class and build your own frame/dialog type of component. In JDK1.4 the Swing team plans to add such functionality..
