Hi,
I am facing a problem w.r.t JSpinner..
I need to populate the spinner with double values and then based on a boolean value need to show the double value as either with a dot seperating the decimals or with a dash.
Here is an example::
assume the boolean value controlling :: isDash

input value is 1.56
if(isDash){
setSpinner with value as 1-56
}else{
setSpinner with value as 1.56
}

The problem is that inside the spinner is a JFormattedTextField and it resets any formatting changes done from the code ...
Somebody please help me regarding this...

Also if anybody has the source code for PointSpinner, please do share it...

you might have to get the spinner's UI and install your own listeners to the next/previous buttons,
to increment/decrement a counter, then split the counter into numerator/denominator and set the
editor's text as numerator + (. or -) +denominator

just did a quick test, basics work OK, but it'd need a fair bit of error handling, and many L&F's
these days don't allow access to the UI's

hopefully there's an easier way
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
