Hi,

I have to create a main menu "Screen" like this: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/9/9f/Chronotron-game-main-menu.png.
I am unsure about what layout manager to use. Any suggestions are welcome

Matt

1) GridBagLayout
2) MigLayout
3) Combination of nested layouts

I am adding panels to my main base JFrame. Does this Impact on my choice of Layout Managers?

No. LayoutManager defines the style in which components are laid out in the parent container.
