What I have is a screen display that is made up of 3 parts all connected vertically. Is there an easy way in Java where the user can click a button so like section 3 detaches from the the other 2 and now it's a separate window? And then if need be it can be reattached? I'm currently using a GridBagLayout for it if that's relavent to anything.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
