JPanel over more JPanels..?
So for the app I'm developing it contains MANY different panels all within one JFrame. Now I need the functionality of clicking on a maximize button on one of the panels within the frame and bringing it full screen (i.e. filling the frame).
Ive been having issues covering the other panels with the maximized panel. Is this even possible? Removing all the panels, making this one full-screen, then adding all the other panels back in when I minimize down to normal again is going to be very difficult if that's what I must do.
Any opinions here? Is there some z-dimension layering that I can't find? Or something? I've tried setting the visibility of the under panels, but they still seem to take up their space.
