    Default gui tutorials

    hello java forums. ^^

    i was just trying to create some decent gui's and noticed that i actually don't have the required skills needed to make decent gui's...
    so i started searching the internet for some nice gui tutorials in java.

    but i haven't found any...
    every tutorial i found was just a simple one... (so only one layoutmanager)

    so my question is do you guys know any site/online tutorial that can help me making decent gui's

    or any plugins, addons that can simplify making gui's?

    grtz liluma

    One good site is the java tutorials:
    The Really Big Index

    It has links to sections of the tutorials for all topics.

    @liluma; about your avatar: what is that? It looks like a filthy leftover from an operating theatre *yuck*.

    kind regards,

    Off topic I know but: Looks more like a nebula to me :)

    Also, for quick gui creation when you just want it to work, so you can get down to the important elements of the code, you can use a gui creater, both netbeans and eclipse have good ones of these.

    Gui creators are worse than a mixed blessing; if you don't know exactly how the internals of gui objects work and if you don't know what that builder is doing you end up with a bunch of code you don't understand and can't sensibly manipulate anymore (if that builder allows you to change the generated code). Better build the gui by hand ...

    it's indeed a nebula in space...

    don't know, but i like the pictures when you see it in full size...

    on topic:
    i know there are some "good' gui creators, but i dislike using them...
    first of all because you actually don't learn a thing about the gui and secondly because of the fact that with gui creators, your gui isn't dynamical, but mostly fixed positions,...

    so that's why i want to learn how to fully code a gui myself.
    i know all the(or at least most) obejcts that you can create with swing, javax, ... but the problem is just the layout... to me that is just a painstaking thing to do in java.

    I *like* your thinking son!

    This will get a *lot* easier with practice and will become almost second nature to you.

    Just keep on codin'.
