    Default Help with Group Layout

    I am trying to create a group layout that looks like this:

    JLabel JTextField
    JLabel JComboBox

    For some reason when I run it, they are all on one line..

     
        JLabel depthLabel = new JLabel("Recursive Depth: ");
        JTextField depthText = new JTextField(2);
        JLabel color1Label = new JLabel ("Color 1: ");
     
        String[] colors = { "Blue", "Cyan", "Dark Gray", "Gray", "Green" };
        JComboBox color1 = new JComboBox(colors);
     
     
        buttonLayout.setAutoCreateGaps(true);
        buttonLayout.setAutoCreateContainerGaps(true);
     
        GroupLayout.SequentialGroup hSeqGroup = buttonLayout.createSequentialGroup();
        GroupLayout.SequentialGroup vSeqGroup = buttonLayout.createSequentialGroup();
     
        GroupLayout.ParallelGroup hParGroup1 = buttonLayout.createParallelGroup();
        GroupLayout.ParallelGroup hParGroup2 = buttonLayout.createParallelGroup();
     
        hParGroup1.addComponent(depthLabel);
        hParGroup2.addComponent(depthText);
     
        hParGroup1.addComponent(color1Label);
        hParGroup2.addComponent(color1);
     
        hSeqGroup.addGroup(hParGroup1);
        hSeqGroup.addGroup(hParGroup2);
     
        GroupLayout.ParallelGroup vParGroup = buttonLayout.createParallelGroup();
        GroupLayout.ParallelGroup vParGroup2 = buttonLayout.createParallelGroup();
     
        vParGroup.addComponent(depthLabel);
        vParGroup.addComponent(depthText);
     
        vParGroup2.addComponent(color1Label);
        vParGroup2.addComponent(color1);
     
        vSeqGroup.addGroup(vParGroup);
        vSeqGroup.addGroup(vParGroup2);
     
        buttonLayout.setHorizontalGroup(hSeqGroup);
        buttonLayout.setVerticalGroup(vSeqGroup);

    You seem to be using an awful lot of code to get a 2x2 grid... I'd take a look at GridLayout.
    Use highlight tags to help others help you!

    [highlight=Java]Your prettily formatted code goes here[/highlight]

    Using these tags makes your code formatted, and helps everyone answer your questions more easily!




    Wanna hear something funny?

    Me too.
