I quite like the iPad functionality in GridBagLayout as it means I can for example, set a JComboBox so that its minimum size will always be big enough to display all the text and not have "..."
I'm using a different layout manager and I want this iPad functionality. I guess I can get it by specifying a fixed minimum size, but then I have to specify a fixed Dimension - with iPadx I could just do iPadx = 10; and not have to worry about the component height, so if I'm never fixing any components height then it is just using the swing defaults which is what I want.
Badly worded question, but basically how do I have iPadx functionality using a different layout manager other than GridBagLayout??
