This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
I haven't used VB, so I'm not sure what a MSHFLEXGRID does... it would help if you describe what it does. I would think that a JTable, or a JPanel with GridLayout, GridBagLayout, or BoxLayout might be what you're looking for, though.
(P.S. - you might want to fix your CAPS LOCK key... )
