Hi All,
what is the best way of building a Swing GUI? Is it better to start off with a base panel and then add panels to that so as to break down the overall structure and thenadd individual components to these panels?

I've not yet come across a tutorial that explicitly shows how to do this and how to use the various Layout Managers that Swing provides - any pointers?

Thanks in advance

Angus
