I'm using JSeparators to draw lines between some panels in my GUI. I don't want to use borders because I only want lines between components, not completely around them (i.e., no lines around the outside edges of the GUI). The problem I'm having is this: With the preinstalled L&Fs (which I want to use), the horizontal JSeparator has empty space on either side of the line (not the case for the vertical JSeparator). I want to be able to draw a vertical line that goes right up to the horizontal line (touching it). However, a vertical JSeparator can't touch the horizontal JSeparator because of the hidden space surrounding the horizontal line. A visual example: I want to do this: _________ | | (vertical line meets horizontal one) | | But I can only do this: _________ <-- (I DON'T WANT THIS SPACE HERE) | | | | I want the vertical JSeparator to come right up and meet the horizontal one! Ideas?
