Run GridbagLayout Demo

Since you can't run the applet, here's a picture of it:

Five buttons laid out with a GridBagLayout.

Note: Because the preceding applet uses the Swing 1.1 API, it requires Java Plug-in 1.1.2 or Java Plug-in 1.2. It won't work with Java Plug-in 1.1.1 or uncustomized 1.1 browsers. For more information about running applets in the tutorial, refer to About Our Examples. That page includes a section about Downloading Java Plug-in.
