I have a JInternalFrame with a JDialog that has a JPanel. The panel has a JLabel. The label shows the status of database connection.
But,when executed the label displays only the last text value
ie. Database Connection Successful ....
I tried validate, repaint. But it did not help. Please help.
The relevant code is below :

The listener for the timers t1 andt are as below:

Hi seema,

To me this is last value that is set to lbldbinfo. If that is the label that is displaying the data base status. This is correct.

It might not be displaying the text set in the below code. as it might be connecting to the data base executing the code above. This can be verified by using a System.out.println statement. The possible solution is to use a delay timer before connecting the data base.

I agree with Suman. I think the problem is something is hogging the system that also shares the same thread as the GUI updates. This results to freezing any updates to occur.

Either you put a delay or better yet put it in a separate thread.

hope this helps.

I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
