Hi,

I want a gridpane layout as in the attached image. Anyone know how to this or am I using the wrong layout?

I figured out the solution to my problem. Use setHgrow(Priority.ALWAYS) on the first column and setVgrow(Priority.ALWAYS) on the first row.

Turns out that GridPane sort of solves the problem. It does handle resizing very well. The perfect way to do this is use anchor pane.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
