Removing Objects from a Custom Layout

Hi Guys,
I created my own custom LayoutManager, which works okay. But now I want to remove a button when it's been clicked. Has anyone ever implemented removeLayoutComponent(Component)? I'm just looking for an example.
Thanks.

All you need to do is undo all you've done in addLayoutComponent. So how about you show us that method?

Look in the Java source code that comes with the JDK. I believe the file name is src.zip, so just unzip it and you have access to all the classes.

@Override
public void addLayoutComponent(Component arg0, Object arg1) {
// TODO Auto-generated method stub

}

If your layout manager doesn't have any of its own administration then it's not necessary to do any cleanup. Just keep the method empty.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
