i use netbeans, but i have difficulty in GUI design, not the codes. i mean, when i making a Graphical User Interface, sometimes the panels are moving,
then i place it back again. unlike VB6.0 when you place the panel/frame the other frame/panel/objects don't move. but i don't like VB6.0
i prefer java. but when i use absolute layout on a panel, it wont move the other panels inside it but i am not confident the panels are arranged
using absolute layout. is there any solution regarding GUI design in netbeans? because it consumes time when im placing the panels/buttons
back to their original place, it is more annoying when you have more panels/buttons/textfields in that design, then it scramble/not arranged
according to what suites my taste.
This isn't really a Swing question but rather an IDE question of how to use NetBeans Matisse GUI builder. My recommendation would be to put Matisse to the side and learn to create Swing code by hand using a combination of coder-friendly layout managers.

It takes far less time to learn to hand-code a simple GUI (and don't flatter yourself that your GUI is overly complex) than it takes to master a GUI builder. Moreover, it takes understanding of the code to use a builder effectively and efficiently.
There are no new questions, but there may be new answers.
