I have a JLabel on which I have setted a ImageIcon "a.jpg".
Can I apply GridbagLayout on JLabel or ImageIcon.

I want to change a portion of that Imageicon with another image "b.jpg".

Would it not be easier to create a third icon file c.jpg which is made from the a.jpg and b.jpg files and then apply that file to the JLabel ?
I have never tried appling a GridBagLayout to JLabel but JLabel does inherit the setLayout method from java.awt.Container, so in theory it is possible.
I agree. Here's the link:
