public class JXMultiThumbSlider<E>
extends JComponent

A slider which can have multiple control points or Thumbs

The thumbs each represent a value between the minimum and maximum values of the slider. Thumbs can pass each other when being dragged. Thumbs have no default visual representation. To customize the look of the thumbs and the track behind the thumbs you must provide a ThumbRenderer and a TrackRenderer implementation. To listen for changes to the thumbs you must provide an implemention of ThumbDataListener. TODOs: move public inner classes (interfaces, etc) to subpackage add min/maxvalue convenience methods to jxmultithumbslider add plafs for windows, mac, and basic (if necessary) make way to properly control the height. hide the inner thumb component

Method Detail


public MultiThumbSliderUI getUI()


public void setUI(MultiThumbSliderUI ui)


public void updateUI()
Description copied from class: javax.swing.JComponent
Resets the UI property to a value from the current look and feel. JComponent subclasses must override this method like this:
   public void updateUI() {

JComponent.setUI(javax.swing.plaf.ComponentUI), UIManager.getLookAndFeel(), UIManager.getUI(javax.swing.JComponent)


public String getUIClassID()
Returns the UIDefaults key used to look up the name of the swing.plaf.ComponentUI class that defines the look and feel for this component. Most applications will never need to call this method. Subclasses of JComponent that support pluggable look and feel should override this method to return a UIDefaults key that maps to the ComponentUI subclass that defines their look and feel.

protected void paintComponent(Graphics g)
Description copied from class: javax.swing.JComponent
Calls the UI delegate's paint method, if the UI delegate is non-null. We pass the delegate a copy of the Graphics object to protect the rest of the paint code from irrevocable changes (for example, Graphics.translate).

If you override this in a subclass you should not make permanent changes to the passed in Graphics. For example, you should not alter the clip Rectangle or modify the transform. If you need to do these operations you may find it easier to create a new Graphics from the passed in Graphics and manipulate it. Further, if you do not invoker super's implementation you must honor the opaque property, that is if this component is opaque, you must completely fill in the background in a non-opaque color. If you do not honor the opaque property you will likely see visual artifacts.

The passed in Graphics object might have a transform other than the identify transform installed on it. In this case, you might get unexpected results if you cumulatively apply another transform.

Description copied from class: java.awt.Component
Moves and resizes this component. The new location of the top-left corner is specified by x and y, and the new size is specified by width and height.
