Hi all, I have a question. If I have a JTextField add to a JPanel, the height of it is the size of the mouse cursor. When I set the JPanel layout manager to use GridLayout, the JTextField fills up the grid cell height and width.
If I set the field's maximumSize() it doesn't seem to change a thing. Any idea to change the size without using GridBagLayout.
GridLayout doesn't really respect the component's preferredSize (well it will if the visual portion of the grid is filled with components, but otherwise it doesn't). You may need to place your gridlayout in a FlowLayout panel or somesuch to allow the gridlayout panel to shrink if it's not filled.
