The Kiwi Toolkit

The Kiwi Toolkit is a foundation class library containing many useful classes that complement the Java Foundation Classes (JFC). It includes many classes and components that were not provided with the JFC, such as a TreeTable component, a DateChooser, an MVC charting package (bar charts, line charts, pie charts), a plugin framework for Java, an application resource manager (for loading images, icons, HTML pages, audio clips, and other resources from JAR files), a better internationalization API, and much more.

            KIWI - KTreeTable
            KTreeTable looks interesting. I tried looking at the for example but it is a little too complex for me. I wonder if you have a more basic tutorial like the one in:

            By the way, great collection of codes. I'd like to try out other components after I learn tree table.

            More power!

            Kiwi is a cool framework
            Hi Mark,

            kiwi framework is a really cool library. There are plenty of useful classes and methods that save a developer time from reinventing the wheel. I find it as a very useful wrapper of Swing.

            Keep up the good work.

            DateChooser doesn't handle default font changes
            Hi Mark,

            Really like your library. I am looking to use a DateChooser widget, and I was attempting to use yours. However, the application sets the default fonts to a larger size (for elementary children), and this throws the DateChooser for a loop with regards to layout. Maybe implementing it with the BoxLayout/BoxView instead of painting it directly?
