Hi,
I'm redesigning my GUI (again!) and was wondering if it was considered bad practice or anything like that to have a few
blank Panels in your GUI just to make the layout managers display things the way you want them.
With Respect,
Matt

I don't believe so. But before you do that, are you sure you can't use layoutmanager like GridBag to handle them?

GridBag would definately work, but the problem I have with GridBag is that occassionally you can make small changes to your GUI and it might require that you totally rework everything. I'm probably just prejudice because I find GridBag complicated and frustrating.

Yeah Matt. GridBag is a bitch. I spend alot of time on it, it's the most powerful layout manager. After awhile, I'm kind of used to it now.
