I have been trying to set the margin of my JMenuItems to spread them out a little so they aren't so crammed together. Here is how I thought was the right way
Insets s = new Insets(5, 5, 5, 5);
JMenuItem b = new JMenuItem("b");
b.setMargin(s);
Anyway, it is not working. Could someone correct my problem?
Thanks

Ok, I have started to get this figured out on my own. But there is a problem. Here is my code.

I thought that since I only grabbed the insets from the New JMenuItem that it would only affect that Component, but it has affected the entire JMenuBar. Anyone know what is going on here?
BTW - This class is called from another class that extends JFrame and creates a JDesktopPane with JInternalFrames. I just didn't want all this mess to be in with my main() file.
