      Description



      Name: rmT116609 Date: 11/19/2003


      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :

      http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/docs/api/javax/swing/JComponent.html#setAlignmentX(float)

      In the JavaDoc for JComponent, methods setAlignmentX and setAlignmentY, we have:

      setAlignmentX:

      "Sets the the vertical alignment."

      setAlignmentY:

      "Sets the the horizontal alignment."

      Is this not the wrong way round?

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      I believe setAlignmentX affects the horizontal, and setAlignmentY the vertical, contrary to the API doc.

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      JComponent.getAlignmentX() claims to set vertical alignment in the documentation. It actually sets the horizontal alignment. setAlignmentX, getAlignmentY and setAlignmentY are similarly wrong.
