Hi,

I writing my text editor in Java, something very similar to Notepad but with more funcionality...i would like to have floatable toolbars which behave same as in other aplications like in Word,so far i have created 3 toolbars and the problem is when user selects and drags out 1 of them for example 2. one in middle last 2 toolbars move to the left end, and now when user closes opened (2. toolbar) he gets back under menu bar but on last postion...I am not sure if I explained it right but I will try to "draw it" down:


---------------------MENU BAR------------------------
|1.FIRST_TOOLBAR_HERE|2.TOOLBAR_HERE|3.TOOLBAR_HERE|


now i take out (drag it) second toolbar

and it looks like this now

---------------------MENU BAR------------------------
|1.FIRST_TOOLBAR_HERE|3.TOOLBAR_HERE|


|2.TOOLBAR_HERE|
-this one somewhere on screen


-after I close my second tool bar it looks like this

---------------------MENU BAR------------------------
|1.FIRST_TOOLBAR_HERE|3.TOOLBAR_HERE||2.TOOLBAR_HERE|


Problem is that now 3. toolbar is infront of 2. which has no sence


How can I fix this problem and keep toolbars floatable at same time?


Thx in advance

In the JToolBar api discussion section, second paragraph there is a recommendation for obtaining proper docking behavior. Try this
