How can I display a grid as a background in the VE? [message #616999] Tue, 25 March 2008 06:35

We put a composite component in the VE.
We want to horizontally align a component that is within this composite with another component that is outside the composite.

For example, we put a composite and a JComboBox into the VE. The JComboBox is under the composite. Our composite contains a JLabel, and we want to horizontally align this JLabel with the JComboBox.

The composite has a property for the JLabel's x, so we can use the Property Sheet to move the JLabel left and right within the composite.

The problem is SEEING that the JLabel is exactly aligned with the JComboBox. Displaying a grid on the VE's background would solve this problem.

Is there a simple way to display this grid?

Thanks,
Eli
