I am designing my first GUI using the Gridbaglayout. I have a content panels called "Shipping Method" with two radio buttons, Ground and Air Express. i have the two radio buttons spaced out properly. I was wondering how I can get the space between the 'ground' radio button and the border of the content panel to decrease? Like there is alot of empty space between the 'Ground' radio button the border surrounding my content panel called "Shipping Method" on both the top and bottom. I tried playing around with the insets, but I could not get it to work. Any help would be appreciated. My code is below (I have to use gridbaglayout)

A couple things:

First when you post code use the code tags (button below where you type) and you can go back and edit your post by clicking on the paper and pencil icon.

Second I would recommend skipping the GridBagLayout and get JGoodies Forms.

I'll post some more ideas when I get home.

P.S. Oops, Sorry I missed the part about having to use GBL.

I'm not sure that I can be much help without compiling and running your program to see what is going on. Unfortunately, I can't do that at the moment as I'm not at my own computer that I typically use for development. With that said, you may want to mosey over to our GUI forum where they discuss such intricacies. You are more likely to find someone there who can help.

p.s. Could you also edit your code so the lines aren't so long? I find horizontal scrolling somewhat annoying.

Hi, Benjamin B

Welcome to JavaRanch! Unfortunately a last initial does not meet the requirements of the JavaRanch Naming Policy which requires a first and last name separated by a space.
You can change it here.

Thanks!

Sorry, can't help you with your problem - I try to avoid GridBagLayout whereever I can.

But when you get too frustrated, you might want to take a look at http://madbean.com/blog/2004/17/totallygridbag.html for a relief.

Moving to the Swing forum...
