No, your other thread wasn't closed. It was moved.
This one is closed however.

I must apologise; I thought at first you were the original poster.
You must have been trying to post at the same time as I moved the original thread, so it would have refused the reply. Although your reply was helpful, I can't drag the thread back from the Swing forum.
So this thread will have to stay closed, but I am sorry for messing you about, and would like to make you welcome here at JavaRanch.
