Hi again,

                I'm trying to lay out my basic screen and I'm having
trouble getting stuff to basically fill the available space.  Here's the

Frame with menu bar

Tool bar under that

Split pane (horizontal) 30% on left, 70%on right


So, I'd like the tool bar to size itself to the image buttons that it
contains and I'd like to have the split pane then fill up the remainder
of the space allotted by the container.  What's the "right" way to make
this work?  At some point, there should be scroll bars when the
container is sized too small for everything to fit (the contents of the
split panes).


Thanks for the help.  I guess I'm struggling with the basics of layout /
scrollbar policy, etc.  Come to think of it, I struggled with the same
things with JSF too .....

does it just right, but I'm having trouble translating that into my
