Projects / table2gridbag


Table2gridbag is a tool for configuring java.awt.GridBagLayout. Java's AWT GridBagLayout is a very versatile layout manager. Unfortunately, it is also very difficult to configure. Table2gridbag allows you to specify a GUI layout by means of an HTML table (with the component names in the table cells) and then transforms this specification into equivalent Java code.

    Release Notes: Support was added for specifying the output classname within the layout code via the caption tag.

      Release Notes: The import statements in generated code were fixed to include java.awt.Container. This was causing trouble when automatically generating components to fill empty table cells. As a new feature, generated code now includes a create(Object) builder method. This method takes an object and uses reflections to extract the components (by name) that the layout specifies. This, of course, requires that this object declares the components by these names as public or protected fields.
