With all the questions that show up about how to get GridBagLayout to
work I thought I would write a little test program to use as a training
device. Any feedback would be appreciated. The program has most of the
constraints but not the ones I rarely use, all the Baseline relative and
Orientation relative values. I could put those in but I thought I would
put it out there for comments before I generated all that code. The
other feature that might be good to add is the ability to set the
preferred size of the components as that does have an effect on layout.

Anyway, please try it out and let me know what you think. Click on a
button to set the constraints for that button.


I've redone the program with some of the suggested changes. Make
changes through the "Edit" menu. You can "Add", "Remove", edit
"Constraints" or edit "Sizes". If you compile the source code and run
it as an application there is a menu option to pack the frame.

Now I need some suggestions for neat looking layouts to put in as defaults.
