an SMS text message!

Hi All
Can anyone tell me how to use Java to send
an SMS text message to my mobile?

Hi
What does 'refactor' mean - is it synonymous with
rewrite - ie the process or rewriting (re-design/
programming) programs, modules, sub-systems or
other chunks of code?

Hi
I want to implement 'microhelp' in my app. - ie have
a line of help at the foot of the frame window with
the help in it. Someone suggested I could do this if
I -
".. change the tool tip renderer to display in the
status line ..."
- how do I change the tooltip renderer?

Hi All
I have a JTable in a JFrame. There's 4 rows displayed
in the JTable. When I click on a row I use a mouse listener
and I display the value in one of the columns. 8 times out
of ten the listener code is invoked and I see the display. Sometimes however I click on a row and it's as if the click has not occured. I click again, and it's ok.

Hi Ajit
At the moment you overwrite the reference in your 'content'
variable each loop. Hold a *vector* of content variables, perhaps?

Hi All
Say I have 3 components, a JFrame and within that a JWidget
and within that a JDing.
I am simplifying this for example - there may be lots of
components within the JWidget. For reasons of robustness,
encapsuation etc I want to development the JWidget component
separately from the JFrame. I will plug the JWidget into
a panel in the JFrame when I am finished building (developing) it.
The JFrame must on occasion capture an event from a JDing.
What is the best way of doing this?

Hi John
Thanks. Could you tell me how to do this please?

Hi Ana
No, tooltips aren't appropriate as some of the help text will
be 10-15 words.

Hi
In a swing frontend, each time a user enters a visual component
- eg a jtextfield - I would like to display a help line at the
bottom of the pane/frame/applet or whatever.
Can anyone suggest a good way of doing this. At the moment I
am thinking of each inheriting from their component type and
building in a listener which thru a focus gain event will
set the help text within the component. I am not sure how
to set it, in a generic way, in the visible help line.
Any better ideas, please?

Hi All
I have 3 jpanels side by side within a jframe. One big and 2 small. The idea is to be able to toggle the contents of the big panel between the contents of the 2 small panels. I'm using 1.1.8 btw.
In the big panel I do .removeAll and then I do .add(A | B)
- where A or B is one of the small panel objects.
I also have 2 buttons to select �pane a or b.
The whole frame thus visually looks like:
bigPanel panelA panelB buttonA buttonB
If I press buttonA then bigPanel gets cleared (there's
a dummy text label in there so I can see this happen)
but panela does not appear in big panel.
I then press button B and nothing visually happens.
If I then resize the *frame* and carry pressing my
buttons everything works as I expected it to in the first
place ie the big panel gets panelA or B depending on the
button.
What is happening here?
