    Exclamation Layout help

    I need help with layouts.
    I need a simple layout of some kind, which allows me to put objects at x,y place.
    Or a layout that allows me to put a gap of space between objects, that needs to be horizontolly and vertically, I tried GridConstraints and layout, I tried to to use a Separator, but nothings seems to work ok.

    I hope you guys can help me.

    Greetings,

    L19htn1n9

    PS: it needs to work on a JPanel

    Have you seen this tutorial? It includes a visual guide to layouts.
    Lesson: Laying Out Components Within a Container (The Java™ Tutorials > Creating a GUI With JFC/Swing)

    And trying to 'put objects at x,y place' isn't usually a good idea.

    Your frame might not be resizable, but what about if a user of the program has set large default fonts, possibly because of a vision defect? Using layout managers properly will automatically adjust for such personal settings.

    That is verry true, but it is just that i really dont know how to work with the layout managers :/
    and i plan to use the program, that i am coding now, for only a select few people, but when i book progress in java coding, I will look into how to properly work with layout managers, its just that i need to have open spaces to make it all look better

    If you check out the tutorials that Darryl provided a link to in his first post, then this problem will be solved.

    I second Darryl's recommendation to check out the layout tutorials. They really are quite helpful.
