7.12 Other Layouts Available on the Net

Many custom layout managers are available on the Internet. Many of these duplicate the layout behavior of other environments. For example, the FractionalLayout is based on Smalltalk's positioning mechanism; it is located at http://www.mcs.net/~elunt/Java/FractionalLayoutDescription.html. The RelativeLayout allows you to position components relative to others, similar to an X Window form; you can find it at http://www-elec.enst.fr/java/RelativeLayout.java. If you like the way Tcl/Tk arranges widgets, try the PackerLayout; it is available at http://www.geom.umn.edu/~daeron/apps/ui/pack/gui.html. If none of these suit you, you can find a collection of links to custom layout managers at http://www.softbear.com/people/larry/javalm.htm. Gamelan (http://www.gamelan.com/) is always a good source for Java classes; try searching for LayoutManager.
