NetBeans Quick Tip #21 - Achieving Same Size

Guest Author

My next Matisse tip is about setting the same size of multiple components. It's useful for instance if you want all buttons to have the same size, but they are layed out horizontally, so no guideline helps you like in the vertical case.

I tried to record it as a small flash Wink video so let me know if this is a good way how to show such Matisse tips. I could also do it as an animated gif, but then the replay capability would be lost.

So here's my first Winklet :)

Hold the Shift key to select multiple components.

    Looks cool, both Winklet and the ability. Are they now "snapped" as if they were vertically oriented?

    How do you mean snapped - can you explain it in details?

    Is it possible to set the same size to the size of a specific component instead of the size of the largest one? It could be really useful...

    That's right - it could depend on the order you choose them.
