Re: My Menus hidden by display.getComponent()

Luke-

This is a lightweight/heavyweight issue.  See:

http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/cgi-bin/msgout?/glimpse/visad-list/3843

for a discussion on this and how to correct the problem.  Also,
the following message along the same lines has a pointer to a Sun
page that explains this:

Bill,

I have a VisAd Display in a Jframe with a Menu Bar.  And when I click on my
menu, which is part of a JMenu bar, the Menu Items actually get displayed
behind the graph.  One of my users noticed that the menus were missing.  But
when I comment out the line below and just display my Jframe with my menus,
I can see them.

this.getContentPane().add(display.getComponent());

Not sure why this is so.  It was not doing this before.


SatDisplay.java, VerySimple.java and VisuTraj.java in
visad/examples all do this same line of code, and they
still work fine. I don't know what the problem is.

Also, on your javax.media.j3d.Canvas3D error, I don't
know why you get this error now but not before.

Good luck,
Bill
