There are Spinner-related classes in the com.sun.java.swing.basic
package, as well as some (non-functional) UI classes,
but no JSpinner!

A spinner control is a basic control which every
GUI library should have.  I really would like to
use Swing for all of my widgets, but I am forced
to use a third-party library for a Spinner.

swing needs a JSpinner component for incrementing and decrementing number values. for anybody that dosen't know what a spinner is, on windows, double click on the time in your system tray and the Date/Time properties dialog comes up, the spinner is the little textfield with the time in it and two arrows to the right of it.

EVALUATION [aim 3/17/98] This is definitely true. (especially since the BasicColorChooser uses a private, unfinished Spinner internally). And after more than two years, it will finally have one. Refer to 4290529 for the details. scott.violet@eng 2000-12-14
