I've stopped working with gui for the last few months because I my basic java knowledge was rusty.
Now after a while I'm feeling that my base has expend and I'm ready to start writing gui programs properly.
I got to know most of the component sub-classes but I have to say it was a nightmater to code without a layout manager.
So my question is, what is the most basic, easiet and popular layout to start with.
I've read some tutorials and I couldn't get a clear answer.
Thanks in advanced.
I thought that there is a "popular" layout but it seems I were wrong.
I already added this link to favorite, thanks for clearing this up for me.
I'm not sure there is a favorite layout. Different layouts are used for different things. For example, you can't really compare a CardLayout to a BorderLayout.
