that isn't menu :-) that Dockable Panel, nothing complicated by using standard LayoutManager

and Insubstantial has (I love that) office2007lookandfeel, but this LaF is very sensitive for EDT, for JTable, JTree you have to look for invokeAndWait instead of invokeLater,

EDIT: suck at first code source, folder test -> class Check (before that download packages to the all free Java Look & Feel), in this class you can compare all best & free Java L&F in one window, that best guidance on this Java Swing world

here coming 1.st example which I found about that, (from died Old.Forums.Sun and very, very old code)

Nicely done, thanx for sharing
To the point Answer.... Ur searching is better then me

I am using Jbutton to display panel instead of Graphics class to design some thing? Will it be a good method.... I mean effeciency.....

This question has already been answered. Start a new discussion instead.
