For the last couple of days I tried to lay out a panel in a specific way but no layoutManager I picked was able to get it quite right.
So I am asking here whether someone can suggest to me what kind of layout manager(s) to use for this.
Here is a picture of how the end result should look like:
It looks like the BorderLayout is the perfect choice, but the problem is, when I use the BorderLayout the top panel will never grow in height as rows are needed.
The top will always have a fixed height of only a single row.
I have also tried other layout managers most were not able to fix the top panels height, others had problems with the size restrictions on the toolbar or came with other problems.
I would very much appreciate any advice on this, thank you very much.
