Panel : Java Glossary


to make Applet or Frame layout easier, you break a frame up into regions and compose each of them separately. Each region is called a Panel. Each can have its own different LayoutManager.Panels don’t have any visible bounding lines. You can delimit them with differing background colours. If you want something to draw on with drawString and drawLine normally you would use a Canvas.

The Swing equivalent of a Panel is called a JPanel.
