JSeparator : Java Glossary


A Swing JComponent that lets you draw a horizontal or vertical rule in a layout. Note the spelling. American programmers often tend to turn the a or o vowels into es. If your separator is not visible, make sure you packed or validated your layout to assign it a size. Most commonly used to add dividers in JMenus.
// Using a JSeparator
import javax.swing.JSeparator;
// ...
JSeparator vertical = new JSeparator( JSeparator.VERTICAL );

myPanel.add( vertical, constraints );
