18.9 java.awt.CardLayout (JDK 1.0)

This class is a LayoutManager that makes each of the components it manages as large as the container and ensures that only one is visible at a time. The standard LayoutManager methods are called by the Container object, and should not be called directly by applet or application code. first(), last(), next(), previous(), and show() make a particular Component in the Container visible. The names with which the components are added to the container are used only by the show() method.
