Re: tabbed panes

Hi Adele,

I am not certain what is causing the tabbed pane to behave strangely. I
wonder whether Java3D in general has issues with JTabbedPane, or just VisAD.

In any case, here is an ugly hack that solves your problem for now:

  SwingUtilities.invokeLater(new Runnable() {
    public void run() {
      for (int i=tabbedPane.getTabCount()-1; i>=0; i--) {

Put this code *after* frame.setVisible(true). You'll also need to make the
tabbedPane declaration final.

As for the issue with data extending beyond the bounding box, you can clip
that away. The following code attached to your Heatplot displays will clip
the data to inside the bounding box only:

  DisplayRendererJ3D dr = (DisplayRendererJ3D) display.getDisplayRenderer();
  dr.setClip(0, true,  1.0f,  0.0f,  0.0f, -1.01f);  // X_POS face
  dr.setClip(1, true, -1.0f,  0.0f,  0.0f, -1.01f);  // X_NEG face
  dr.setClip(2, true,  0.0f,  1.0f,  0.0f, -1.01f);  // Y_POS face
  dr.setClip(3, true,  0.0f, -1.0f,  0.0f, -1.01f);  // Y_NEG face
  dr.setClip(4, true,  0.0f,  0.0f,  1.0f, -1.01f);  // Z_POS face
  dr.setClip(5, true,  0.0f,  0.0f, -1.0f, -1.01f);  // Z_NEG face

Hope that helps.
