I have a CardLayout within which I have panels constituting each 'card'. However, the panels refuse, seemingly, to respond to my sizing requirements.
doublePane = new JSplitPane(JSplitPane.VERTICAL_SPLIT, comboPanel, lowerPanel);
comboPanel.setSize(new Dimension(100, 600)); // totally ineffective
lowerPanel.setSize(new Dimension(1100, 600));
JPanel displayPanel = new JPanel();
Any ideas would be appreciated...
