Re: Layout Managers
I'm going to tell you what I do. Maybe others do the same. I
JBuilder, I use the null layot. When I am confident I have everything
right then I switch to GridBag in the GUI desgin editor. It will
somewhat keep things they way they were with null but it will be a
manager that works on all platfrms.

> I'm looking for a good layout manager. I've evaluated XmFormLayout,
AttachLayout, HTMLLayout, TableLayout & GridBag. I'm working on a
project that is going to be presented in several languages so
localization is an issue. I've found GridBag to work well but I feel
it's somewhat cumbersome to utilize. The XmFormLayout manager is
relational in nature as opposed to the grid layout concept and it's
easy to use. However, it is not very "feature rich", it's older so I
had to remove all of the deprecated method calls to get it to work with
Swing. It falls short of my needs. I need a quick and efficient way to
create resizable screens that support internationalization. Any
comments would be appreciated.
