Hello,

I am confused as to how to work on GridBagLayout. Below is the sample code that i have tried ..

GBC is a customised class which extends GridBagConstraints and is defined
as




On running the above code I find that button 5 is covered by button 4 and is not displayed at all. On investigating I find that if I remove mentioning gridwidth and gridheight then button 5 gets displayed.

Please help to understand how to get around this problem.

Oh goodness that's golden...!

I haven't used GridBag in a long time, nor do I plan on it.

Not that I'm trying to give plugs to certain developers, but I really think MigLayout (miglayout.com) is a phenomenal LayoutManager, which really eclipses Gridbag in simplicity and flexibility.
