CardLayout : Java Glossary


A layout manager that flips between several possible screen layouts, as if they were on cards and it shows you only one card at time. This is the closest thing the current AWT (Advanced Windowing Toolkit) has to a tabbed dialog, except there are no tabs for the user to click. A mechanism for controlling which card should show has to be provided separately, e.g. via some buttons. You layout each card with whatever LayoutManager is appropriate. CardLayout does not have anything to do with the layout of each card.
