GridBagLayout isn't sitting right


D

Darren

Hi all. I'm trying to use a gridbaglayout to set the layout of a dialog box.
The dialog box contains a panel with buttons in the southe field of a
borderlayout and the center panel contains the gridbaglayout
the centre panel is meant to show three rows. two of whoch contain a label,
a textfield and a button containing "..." and the other row contains a label
and a textfield only. Sounds simple huh?

I'm getting a mess. A self contained example is below

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

You've got a mess there all right. See test1 below.

public class test1 {
public static void createGUI() {
JFrame f = new JFrame();
f.setDefaultCloseOperation(JFrame.EXIT_ON_CLOSE);
f.setLayout(new GridBagLayout());

GridBagConstraints c = new GridBagConstraints();
c.gridx = c.gridy = 0; c.insets = new Insets(3,3,3,3);

JLabel l = new JLabel("Label 1");
f.add(l,c);

++c.gridx;
JTextField tf = new JTextField(10);
f.add(tf,c);

++c.gridx;
JButton b = new JButton("...");
f.add(b,c);

c.gridx = 0; ++c.gridy;
l = new JLabel("Label 2");
f.add(l,c);

++c.gridx;
tf = new JTextField(10);
f.add(tf,c);

++c.gridx;
b = new JButton("...");
f.add(b,c);

c.gridx = 0; ++c.gridy;
