Hi folks,

There was a wonderful small tutorial on the coderanch site about Java Swings that explained how simple elements like JPanel, GridBagLayout, TextBoxes can be created. Unfortunately, I tried searching over google, on the coderanch site but no luck. Can anybody help me with the link...Note that the tutorial was an old one but gave a good conceptual knowledge about Java Swings for beginners. Thanks.

I don't remember that tutorial, but have you tried this? By the way, it isn't called Swings.

Can't find anything resembling a dedicated tutorial but here are a few resources we do have

- Swing Faq : Lots of links to Swing resources on CodeRanch and farther afield.
- Code Barn : Some general Java programming tutorials, some of which cover Swing components.

As Campbell has linked to already, you'll find the most comprehensive tutorial coverage on The Official Java 8 'Client Technologies' tutorials.

Hi,

Found the link : http://www.javaranch.com/journal/200409/Journal200409.jsp#a3.
This one is written by Mr. Tom Tolman.

One of the best and interesting articles for understanding layout managers.

Anyways, thanks folks for your support and suggestions.

You shou‍ld scroll that JavaRanch Journal link to the top, where you will find the most frequently quoted article ever: Strings, Literally by Corey McGlone.
 
For my next trick, I'll need the help of a tiny ad ...
