I have a JDialog using GridBagLayout that contains "rows" of various components. However, I need to add a pair of radio buttons to each "row" but I want the size of the pair together to be the same as the other components (i.e. the radio button pair should appear as a single component to the user). I'm guessing I need to put the pair of radio buttons in a container but what type container should I use and can I force that container to be the same size as all the other components? TIA.
