    Exclamation jLabel update

    hi ,

    i am doing a program which will display the image and refresh due to i have 100 image in my local machine. this is the example of my code

    import javax.swing.JLabel;
    import javax.swing.JFrame;
    import javax.swing.ImageIcon;
    import java.awt.Toolkit;

    public class Tester
    public static void main(String[]args)
    int i = 1;
    ImageIcon ii=new ImageIcon("1.jpeg");
    JLabel label=new JLabel(ii);
    JFrame frame=new JFrame("Put image on JLabel");
    label.setIcon(new ImageIcon(i + "jpeg"));
    File f = new File(i + ".jpeg");

    frame.setDefaultCloseOperation(JFrame.EXIT_ON_CLOS E);




    the image will start from 1.jped, 2.jpeg till 100.jpeg ... and i ll rename it to screenshot.jpeg so that it will override the image and also can save the harddisk space. it can compile with no problem but when i run the program , a frame will appear while nothing inside the frame . so , what is the problem of this ?? sorry for my ignorance and thanks for the reply

    Default Re: jLabel update

    Swing uses one thread and one thread alone to do all user interaction and drawing with -- including drawing of GUI components, and if you tie up this thread with long-running code, your GUI will become completely unresponsive. This thread is called the EDT or event dispatch thread, and to solve your problem, you're going to have to use a background thread to do your image reading with. For the details on how to solve this, lease have a look here: Concurrency in Swing.
