Semi-transparent overlay on SplitPane

Postby StepTNT » Mon Jun 01, 2015 8:47 pm

I'm trying to add an overlay to a SplitPane, but the results are weird (the SplitPane is rendered with a strange offset instead of starting from (0,0)).
I also have issues when the overlay should be hidden, because I can't see the SplitPane (plain grey background and nothing shown).

Here's a screenshot of what happens when I show the overlay:

Of course I'd like to have the SplitPane shown correctly with just the overlay over it.

This is my JFrame's outline:

Finally, I'm showing/hiding the outline with this code:

Code: Select all
if (enabled){
} else {                     
    mainPanelContainer.add(indexerOverlay, SwingConstants.CENTER, SwingConstants.CENTER); 
    mainPanelContainer.setComponentZOrder(indexerOverlay, 0);

Now, the code may be wrong but this is the only combination that showed some results. Without remove/add it doesn't show up.

Any hints on this?

It looks like you are trying to switch/hide some portions of UI by changing visibility which might not actually work the way you expect it to. I cannot really say anything else about this problem without seeing the whole code - it would all be guesses.

Also it would be nice if you can provide an SSCCE representing this issue.
