Hi all!
I am new to this forum. I am a programmer for over 10 years(C++, Perl, Python, Objective Pascal...) but the first time I use Java.
Thanks for the great comments, all I needed I found in this forum, although I have not asked a single question.
Thank you!
p.s. My first, very simple application(big_buttons have popup menu).

Welcome to the Ranch!

Your application seems very good, just keep up the good work! Though I would have just a couple of small suggestions.

Labels (Datum, Dobavljac, ...) could be better aligned with the controls they are referring to. With the layout you have "Dobavljac" and "Vrednost" seem to refer to text fields on the left. Also you should use Serbian letters for labels (and thus for all the components in your GUI to make it more consistent).

Also (since I can understand the terms in the form) I would recommend you replace Ubaci/Izbaci/Snimi/Odustani with more common terms for those actions, e.g. Dodaj/Obriši/Sačuvaj/Odustani.

Thank you very much for your suggestions, Kemal!
As a rule I avoid specific characters, in my company (General Hospital) ,long accustomed to such labels(because me).
Best regards!


p.s. ("...could be better aligned with the controls they are referring to...") You're right!
