I personally use the SWTBorderLayout class available in the SwingWT |
project (http://swingwt.sourceforge.net). However, the GridLayout is
far more customizable and only slightly more difficult to use once you
get used to it. GridLayout is what I would use. And by the way, if
you're writing an entire application using SWT, I can't stress enough
how important it is to get familiar with GridLayout and it's
properties. You'll use it at every turn and you'll save yourself a lot
of heartache if you put some time into learning it now rather than while
