Hi All,
I 've 4 comboboxes and 4 labels for these comboboxes , one textfield, two buttons. I am planning to add all these to a Jpanel, and I'll add Jpanel to a JFrame. I'll set the layout manager of frame to a border layout.
What layout will be appropriate for the panel. I don't think flow layout will do, since it will get disturbed with resizing, even the same problem with absolute positioning. All suggestions will be appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
Ranch Hand

U can use use Gridlayout for this. Divide ur frame into 5 rows and 1 col . . Put 5 J Panels in each row
Now add 1 label and 1 combobox in each JPanel and 1 textfield and 2 buttons in the last (5th) row.
new GridLayout(5,1);
JPanel p1 = new JPanel();
JPanel p5 = new JPanel();

p1.add(new Label("sds"));
p1.add(new JCombo());
p5.add(new TextField());
p5.add(new Button());
p5.add(new Button());
That's it,
