Not sure exactly how to explain this... Please look at the Calendar app/New item. Notice how there are nice rounded boxes defining various groups of fields? I want to replicate this layout.
I assume they are defining top, bottom, left and right bitmaps for the layout manager to use when insert items such as edit fields and separators. Can someone please point me in the right direction?
Thanks and happy holidays! Steve

I think they simply "exposed" the BorderFactory in 4.6 - prior to that it was not in the public 3rd-party API's.
You can invent your own by using a Manager with a background, then making sure the fields are layed out to respect the border margin.
If you search the forum, I believe I recall a thread where someone had basically duplicated BorderFactory on 4.2.1 and higher, just for this purpose.
