Subject [classlib][swing] the method called via reflection in UIDefaults is undefined Re: JRootPane NPE
Date Fri, 04 Apr 2008 13:47:14 GMT
Thanks for the question. If I understand you correctly UIDefaults hash
table does not contain a proper value for a method to call for the key
corresponding to JRootPane.class. Why? The brief answer is "I don't
know". Keep digging deeper. BTW, do we have swing gurus on the list
who could shed the light on the problem?

To guess what should be in the method variable I suggest you setting a
breakpoint on this line and try to collect a statistics for working
swing demos. Why do they work? If JRootPanne would work, it probably
has a different look and feel or setup in standard demos.

I like that you have come with the guess. I checked how setUI() is
called from java/common/javax/swing/JRootPane.java: it is mentioned
three times as in other components. So, keeping an eye on this method
does not help. I believe someone should register a method for this
class in UIDefaults, for example, call new UIDefaults(a proper array).
I found that this is done in the following places.

$  grep -rlI 'new UIDefaults' ./java/common/javax/swing/* | grep -v svn

Based on this list I may guess that the chosen look and feel does not
register JRootPane look and feel correctly. Please, keep us posted on
your advances.
