This example shows how to create the MViewPane JavaBean component and embed it in a Swing Container component.
By default, MViewPane has one single cell into which a molecule can be set in different ways:
Loaded from file or URL
Pasted or Dropped from other applications
Molecule object set directly through API
Molecule String representation set through API
This example demonstrates loading molecules from files by creating a File > Open menu.
This image is a snapshot of ViewSimple.java in use. The major part of this code is shown below.
Creating and embedding the single-cell MViewPane component in the JPanel:
Setting a java.io.File to the single-cell having the index 0 without format options:
In case a multi-molecule file is opened with this method, it is considered to be an animation or molecular dynamics simulation, and the structures are shown one after another.
However, it is more common to have multi-molecule files containing molecules without such a relation. These molecules are typically shown in a table.
The View Table example shows how to create a table with multiple cells.
