A create a print view with grids.
I have a blank white page on the left side of the GUI (this is called PageView class). And on the right side (ChordTabPane class) is some options and Add button and a small window of a user defined Chord Diagram (guitar).
What I would like is when the user clicks the "Add" button it add the chord to the page on the left side, PageView class. The current view I am working on is a 3X3 grid. That allows 9 Chord Diagrams to be on the page. The purpose is to be able to print these for quick chord references.
I am trying to figure out how to create a reasonable Object that will fill in the selected Grid size on the PageView area. I imagine in this Object it should be a user defined JPanel chord grid.
My main question is...
Would it be better to create a new JPanel class that would fit in a Object and copy information from the user defined chord grid?
Or would it be better to just store information in the Array and have the PageView paintComponent draw it out?
Thank you in advance this forum is always so good.
