Does any one know how I can set the minimum size of a component using Grid Layout?
EG - I am placing Panels on a scrollable panel. I have 5 columns, but I want a random number of rows, but I dont want the rows squashed up.
Can I set the mimimum size of the components so that I have to scroll down to see them
Thanks,
D

Hi Dave,
Grid Layout ignores component sizes anyway ... All components are given the same size area which is the layout divided evenly in both directions.
You might look into GridBagLayout ...
