Java SplitPane Example


  • A JSplitPane displays two components, either side by side or one on top of the other. By dragging the divider that appears between the components, the user can specify how much of the split pane's total area goes to each component.
  • You can divide screen space among three or more components by putting split panes inside of split panes, as described in Nesting Split Panes.
  • By default, a split pane's preferred size and divider location are initialized so that the two components in the split pane are at their preferred sizes. If the split pane isn't displayed at this preferred size and the program hasn't set the divider's location explicitly, then the initial position of the divider (and thus the sizes of the two components) depends on a split pane property called the resize weight. If the split pane is initially at its preferred size or bigger, then the contained components start out at their preferred sizes, before adjusting for the resize weight. If the split pane is initially too small to display both components at their preferred sizes, then they start out at their minimum sizes, before adjusting for the resize weight.
  • The user can drag the divider to any position as long as neither contained component goes below its minimum size. If the divider has one-touch buttons, the user can use them to make the divider move completely to one side or the other — no matter what the minimum sizes of the components are.
