    Default JTabbedPane with two Panels in the same tab?

    Hi all,

    is it possible to have a JTabbedPane where in the first tab I have a Panel and when I click on a button I change to a second Panel, but continue in the same tab?

    I know I can create a new frame and open the second panel there, but I don't want a new popup window.. I would like to continue in the same tab..

    Thanks in advance!

    Sounds like a job for CardLayout.
