Hi all,
Write a line of code that declares a variable named layout of type LayoutManager and initializes it with a new object, which when used with a container can lay out components in a rectangular grid of equal-sized rectangles, 3 components wide and 2 components high???

LayoutManager layout = new GridLayout(3,2);
Maybe like this?

I don't think this is right
Originally posted by Nick Riviera:

Actually I thought the constructor for GridLayout was
GridLayout(int rows, int cols)
Therefore the rows would determine the vertical(i.e. height) and cols would determine the horizontal (i.e. width)
So I believe it should be stated:
LayoutManager layout = new GridLayout(2,3);
For 2 components high and 3 components wide which is just a different way of saying 3 components wide and 2 components high.
You agree?

Yes, travis is right. If you have some math background, you can remember this as a matrix, and in a matrix we always refer to the rows first and the columns next.
I agree. Here's the link:
