So i have been working on my project "changing layouts at runtime" for quite a while now and have it finally working. I am now just trying to make the different layouts look better.
I have grouped together some things on the tempPanel() , which are the Components used in the different layouts picked by the user , using JPanel as shown below..
is this a good practice? is it ok to do it that way ?
when does the layout change? when clicked on a button? and how are you implementing the change in your listener?
Looking from what you are doing, I think you should make use of CardLayout to display different panels as per the need
In this project i am not allowed to use CardLayout although i know how to use it, that is the reason i am doing it this way. the layout is changed either using JRadioButtons in a fixed JPanel, or with a button which produces a random layout <--- just added the random layout for fun.. Like i said, everything is working quite well, just curious if grouping Components together with a JPanel whithin a JPanel is ok to do? or is there a better way of doing it?
