Choice Example

Create the following java program using any editor of your choice in say D:/ > AWT > com > tutorialspoint > gui >

AwtControlDemo
package com.tutorialspoint.gui;

import java.awt.*;
import java.awt.event.*;

public class AwtControlDemo {

   private Frame mainFrame;
   private Label headerLabel;
   private Label statusLabel;
   private Panel controlPanel;

   public AwtControlDemo(){
      prepareGUI();
   }

   public static void main(String[] args){
      AwtControlDemo  awtControlDemo = new AwtControlDemo();
      awtControlDemo.showScrollbarDemo();
   }

   private void prepareGUI(){
      mainFrame = new Frame("Java AWT Examples");
      mainFrame.setSize(400,400);
      mainFrame.setLayout(new GridLayout(3, 1));
      mainFrame.addWindowListener(new WindowAdapter() {
         public void windowClosing(WindowEvent windowEvent){
            System.exit(0);
         }        
      });    
      headerLabel = new Label();
      headerLabel.setAlignment(Label.CENTER);
      statusLabel = new Label();        
      statusLabel.setAlignment(Label.CENTER);
      statusLabel.setSize(350,100);

      controlPanel = new Panel();
      controlPanel.setLayout(new FlowLayout());

      mainFrame.add(headerLabel);
      mainFrame.add(controlPanel);
      mainFrame.add(statusLabel);
      mainFrame.setVisible(true);  
   }

   private void showScrollbarDemo(){                                       
      headerLabel.setText("Control in action: Scrollbar"); 

      final Scrollbar horizontalScroller = new Scrollbar(Scrollbar.HORIZONTAL);
      final Scrollbar verticalScroller = new Scrollbar();
      verticalScroller.setOrientation(Scrollbar.VERTICAL);
      horizontalScroller.setMaximum (100);
      horizontalScroller.setMinimum (1);
      verticalScroller.setMaximum (100);
      verticalScroller.setMinimum (1);

      horizontalScroller.addAdjustmentListener(new AdjustmentListener() {

         @Override
         public void adjustmentValueChanged(AdjustmentEvent e) {
            statusLabel.setText("Horozontal: "
               +horizontalScroller.getValue() 
               +" ,Vertical: "
               + verticalScroller.getValue());
            }
         });

      verticalScroller.addAdjustmentListener(new AdjustmentListener() {

            @Override
            public void adjustmentValueChanged(AdjustmentEvent e) {
               statusLabel.setText("Horozontal: "
               +horizontalScroller.getValue() 
               +" ,Vertical: "+ verticalScroller.getValue());
            }
         });

      controlPanel.add(horizontalScroller);
      controlPanel.add(verticalScroller);

      mainFrame.setVisible(true);  
   }
}

Compile the program using command prompt. Go to D:/ > AWT and type the following command.

D:\AWT>javac com\tutorialspoint\gui\AwtControlDemo.java

If no error comes that means compilation is successful. Run the program using following command.

D:\AWT>java com.tutorialspoint.gui.AwtControlDemo
