Hello, I'm learging with a real life program that I need.
Now I have the Swing toolbar with icons, and each icon call to a different panel using Cardlayout.
Now I need to code what every panel need to do.
What is the normal way to do this?
1) Coding every panel inside the same aplication and the same Swing GUI...
2) Coding every panel like one individual piece of code, by example a standard jpanel.. and when the code is right copy and paste or import the code inside the real application?

Typically you would create different .java files extending
public class LoginPanel extends JPanel public class SettingsPanel extends JPanel public class DashBoardPanel extends JPanel
Then you would create
of these panels and use them in your card layout
//Initialize instances LoginPanel loginPanel... SettingsPanel settingsPanel.... DashBoardPanel dashBoardPanel... //Define a panel with card layout JPanel cardPanel = new JPanel(new CardLayout()); //add instances to the parent cardPanel.add(loginPanel, "login"); cardPanel.add(settingsPanel, "settings"); cardPanel.add(dashBoardPanel, "dashBoard");
