Hey all, The beginner program that I am working on has both drawn items (fillOval, drawRect, etc.) How can I place buttons near these drawn items? I have done what I can with layout managers already. I tried to separate the component portions and the drawn portions such that the components were on panels and the drawn portions are on canvases and these are added to a layout manager. But there are certain places where I want to put a button right next to a "knob" that I have drawn... All help appreciated, Mark
I would try the null layout manager. This is where you pass a null in when a layout manager is asked for. The downside is that you need to call setBounds() for every component - but! you do get exact placement!
