Hi guys

I'm a Swing newbie (about a week now)
Been given this project to work on where I need to create a HTML looking summary page, I have tried creating it using GridBagLayout for the past couple of days but I don't think it is possible. I think it's just too complicated (at least too complicated for me!)

I have attached a sample of what the page needs to look like for you to look at.
Basically I am wondering if this can be done in Swing (GridBagLayout or any other LayoutManager) or if it would have to be done using HTMLK, in which case how can I embed a HTML page within a Swing panel.

Cheers (in advance) for any help.

Rouch sample of what the page needs to look like (couldn't get it to let me attach this sorry)

Maybe a JTable is what you need.

Keep in mind that you can place JPanel within JPanel within JPanel. It's possible to create very complex GUIs using this method. And all can have their own layout managers. Don't attempt to do it with just one JPanel. If the JTable doesn't work for you, look at combining several JPanels where each hold a specific set of controls, all with their own layout managers. Just my $.02...
