As you can see, "Add" and "Delete" Button are not the same size. And Im Struggling that those buttons should always have a fixed size and be right aligned, while the table should horizontally grow/shrink depending on the screen size.

I think that the Swing JButton created for the Scout Button does not fill the available space.

Out of the box, I am not aware of any possibility to influence this (maybe I am wrong).

index.php/fa/20575/0/

You see this well with the Layout Debugger (CTRL-SHIFT-F2).

The applications I know are using following semantic for buttons:
* We use button style for scout buttons that close the dialog (OK button, Cancel button...).
* We use link style for scout buttons that triggers other action (opening another dialog, creation a row in a table...). Those actions are very similar to context menu. This is useful when users are not really familiar to context menus.

This means it would look like this:

index.php/fa/20576/0/

In this PoC the enable/disable logic is not implemented. Of course "delete" should be only enabled when a row is selected in the "Children" table.

Thanks for this suggestion. I'll probably stick to this approach Smile
