How is GridBagLayout implemented?

Posted by Christy Nicklas on July 20, 2000 at 7:46 PM

Specifically, is there any real performance gain when using GridBag as opposed to nesting, say, BoxLayout, FlowLayout, and BorderLayout together? On what order of magnitude?

Or is GridBagLayout simply a convenience to the programmer, and "under the hood" it actually is implemented by nesting the other managers together anyway?

Thanks in advance.
