Hi all, I am not very clear how the child nodes are handled in JTree. I have a JTree and i obtain the tree model using JTree.getModel() method. TreeModel in turns get me the root node of the Tree using TreeModel.getRoot() method. I do a getChildCount to obtain number of child nodes. If i want to delete all child nodes, i am not able to use a for loop to do that because everytime i use TreeModel.getChild(rootNode, index) and removeNodeFromParent() to get and remove a child from root node, the array of child nodes shrinks automatically, like you are pulling a book at the bottom of a pile of books. So if i want to delete all child nodes, i have to getChild at index=0 for as many times as the child count. Is this the typical way to delete all child nodes?
