A GUI Painter Friendly Table Component

Submitted by gunnar on Tue, 08/17/2021 - 13:21

In the early days of Java, GUI forms were written, not drawn. They were created by writing code that instantiated components and added them to containers with various layout constraints. Then the program was run and the result could be admired. This way of working, WYGIWYG (what you get is what you get) was often quite fun, more often frustrating, and never very productive. Today we have a JavaBeans specification and integrated development environments (IDEs) with GUI painters.
