I have been trying to set the margin of my JMenuItems to spread them out a little so they aren't so crammed together. Here is how I thought was the right way Insets s = new Insets(5, 5, 5, 5); JMenuItem b = new JMenuItem("b"); b.setMargin(s); Anyway, it is not working. Could someone correct my problem? Thanks
Ok, I have started to get this figured out on my own. But there is a problem. Here is my code.
I thought that since I only grabbed the insets from the New JMenuItem that it would only affect that Component, but it has affected the entire JMenuBar. Anyone know what is going on here? BTW - This class is called from another class that extends JFrame and creates a JDesktopPane with JInternalFrames. I just didn't want all this mess to be in with my main() file. ------------------ Happy Coding, Gregg Bolinger [This message has been edited by Gregg Bolinger (edited October 31, 2001).]
