I have put my game development on hiatus for the moment and have been building up my swing skills... all was going well but now I have a strange "feature" in my program which is that a JLabel that makes up a status bar periodically spontaneously "jumps up". The period between jumps is seemingly random.
To help explain what i mean a short video of the problem (MPEG4 and 500k) can be found at http://www.insightz.net/bvhJdnInLnyTjlL9wrAk/jumpingstatusbar.avi
This "jumping" only occurs when the JLabel is formatted using HTML (i.e. to get the bolding of the figures), if the label is just pure text the label behaves as expected and no jumping occurs.
Is there anything special i need to do with the JLabel when using html formatting with the .setText() method? Does anyone have an idea at what might be causing this "jumping"?
