Vep grind layout editing

But the most impressive is their new layout editing feature like Matisse. But they do not use and custom layout manager but the Swing’s GridLayout. Cool. Check out its demo here.

 Improve the visual assist for dropping, and manipulating components on a Grid Layout.  VE enables the user to treat the Grid as a table that will automatically grow in both directions, and insert/remove filler labels.

    Hi. Interresting reading on the new improved layout managers. However, I would like to point you to the flexible and easy to use layout manager I have released as open source: RiverLayout, http://www.datadosen.se/riverlayout
    If you’re "code oriented" rather than drag and drop oriented, this layout manager allows a lot of flexibility combined with little coding and very intuitive functionality. I use it in the very popular web photo album software JAlbum.
