    Default Layout Manager suggestion

    Hi Everyone;

    I'm fairly new to Java and, after going through Sam's teach yourself java in 24hrs, I'd like to make my own calculator.

    I have aheavy background in web programming and I find this new way of "styling" really awkward so I'm looking for suggestions/pointers on how to layout my calculator and their components.

    This is what I want it to look like:

    So far I've messed around with FlowLayout, GridLayout, and Absolute Positioning (null Layout) but I just can't seem to find the right 'fit' (pardon the pun).

    Can someone suggest the appropriate way to go about laying these components out? It would be much appreciated...

    I would probably do it with the miglayout
    MiG Layout Java Layout Manager for Swing and SWT
    The documentation is very good and easy to use, read http://www.miglayout.com/QuickStart.pdf
    I think it`s easier as GridBagLayout.
    Maybe you can make it even with the TableLayout
