Simple Java Panel setLocation issue. help?
« on: February 16, 2009, 07:10:08 AM »
Im currently working on a project which has a game panel and a control panel.
The game panel works fine, however now im trying to create the control panel in the same frame, and i cant seem to set its location.
Its location is under the game panel, however I cant seem to make this stick, as the button always displays at the top of the screen in the middle.

I know with java you have little control over they layout, but surely I must be able to group a section of buttons and make sure they display in one area only?

Code pasted below in spoiler
Thanks in advance
