    I've tried all layout managers so far and no one did what I wanted it to. I
    know GridBagLayout will do the job but I cannot figure out how to use it.

    I want to have several components width different heights (!) to be aligned
    vertically or horizontally.

    If I use the following code the components get resized in height (thouh
    printing getSize() and getPreferredSize() shows that there height hasn't

    GridBagLayoutgbc.anchor = GridBagConstraints.NORTH;
    gbc.gridx = 0;
    gbc.gridy = GridBagConstraints.RELATIVE;
    gbc.fill = GridBagConstraints.NONE;
    parentComponent.add(this, gbc);

    If I use the code everything is fine and the components get aligned
    horizontally width correct widths and heights:

    GridBagLayoutgbc.anchor = GridBagConstraints.WEST;
    gbc.gridx = GridBagConstraints.RELATIVE;
    gbc.gridy = 0;
    gbc.fill = GridBagConstraints.NONE;
    parentComponent.add(this, gbc);

    Can anybody help please!?

    Example, please. GridBagLayout can do what you want, but you have to learn
    how to use it.

    Hi Paul,
    I solved it using a simple FlowLayout. :)
