Description _ lcincura 2005-01-04 17:26:16 UTC
In current implemetation, user cannot copy the
layout and elements to other container. This is
not problem with simple layouts, but for example
to setup GridBagLayout lasts long time. Now there
is no way how to move it to other container (no
copy/paste for layouts + generated code is in
guarded block)
Comment 1 Tomas Pavek 2005-05-13 15:03:29 UTC
Mostly copying whole container should be enough. It is not enough only if you
need different target container type, or if the source container is e.g. JFrame.
Also the layout in the target container might clash with the layout you copy
from another container. This would require some experimenting. I'd rather like
to have a "Change container type" or "Group into container" actions.
