hello everyone! i have started to work with an app that store data about movies in xml files that data is then being displayed in swing components so far everything works fine
but the project always hangs when it comes to design. i want to use cardlayout controlled jpanels that handles all the input from the user about the current movie being added.
i dont like dialogs that pops up on the users screen i dont know why but i just do. does anyone have any suggestion on how to proceed with the layout? i have a form where the user
shall store info about the title, original title, length, categories, links, actors and so on.

Hi Kalle,

What is really your question? What do you want to show on different panels? If you are talking about how to control the selected panel, you can put a next button and previous button somewhere which can change the current panel. Maybe you should use tabbed pane instead of CardLayout.
I hope it helps.
