I wasnt exactly sure where to put the search in the GUI.
I am using a
in a scrollpane, and the frame is has a borderlayout.
North I have the toolbar, center is the jtable, south is a place holder for something like status.
What is the best approach for search that people have followed.
2. two text fields and then a search button

2-3 choices, radio buttons
few choices, select
many choices, text input (combo filtering optional)
suggestions and new input, combo
Notice that few and many are relative. :roll:
It does not look quering db for choices (since you would have to do that everytime an input object is used), so i guess we should use a regular text input for each field.
I am far from the GUI implementation and never wrote a Swing interface.
Lol I guess I just shouldn't be answering this topic, but...
