If there are too many items in JMenu, some of them will disappear. They won't show them in multiple columns like windows.

Now I am using springlayout and calculate rows and rols by items' size. I made the items be showed in multiple columns. But the order is from left to top not vertical like normal menu from top to bottom.

Is there a layout can let items in this order? Boxlayout Y_AXIS is vertical but can I make it multiple columns?

solved by myself!

I studied all of the layouts. I almost gave up. Then I found all I need do is modify the SpringUtilities.makeCompactGrid method.
