Hy,

I want to use some ExpandBar items in my UI, like those in SWT. I am currently using swing and unfortunately I did not find anything like this yet.
So, do you know the class in swing that I can use ? ... or any other advice is greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
Ender

this example is very similair to old SWT Widget

This is a very nice example!

Thanks for your quick answer!
