Ranchers,

I have a JSlider component. I'd like to display labels "Slower" at one end and "Faster" at the other end. How can I achieve this?

this is what I currently have,
The numbers are milliseconds and represent delay in displaying the next component.

Any inputs/pointers are greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
 
Ranch Hand

Hi Pavan

You can find the answer from Java Tutorial from Sun web site.

The following code creates the slider and customizes its labels:
---------------------------------------
//Create the slider
JSlider framesPerSecond = new JSlider(JSlider.VERTICAL,
FPS_MIN, FPS_MAX, FPS_INIT);
framesPerSecond.addChangeListener(this);
framesPerSecond.setMajorTickSpacing(10);
framesPerSecond.setPaintTicks(true);

//Create the label table
Hashtable labelTable = new Hashtable();
labelTable.put( new Integer( 0 ), new JLabel("Stop") );
labelTable.put( new Integer( FPS_MAX/10 ), new JLabel("Slow") );
labelTable.put( new Integer( FPS_MAX ), new JLabel("Fast") );
framesPerSecond.setLabelTable( labelTable );

framesPerSecond.setPaintLabels(true);
