Why use layout managers in applet?
I am a bit green with Java and don't really understand its philosophy yet. I was wondering if anyone could tell me why layout managers are used in applets rather than just physically laying out with setBounds(...) method. It seems to me that Java applets have fixed dimensions anyway and resizing them is not going to take advantage of auto-re layout as a result of resizing.
Anyway, just wondered what people thought about using setBounds(...) in a applet of fixed dimensions?
