Hi all.

I am writing a desktop app and am constantly switching between an MDI centered layout and a layout with a jtabbedpane with closable tabs.
I just can't make up my mind!

What do you think is the best approach??

Any help is appreciated

Thanks

Frank

How about doing twice the work and leaving the choice to the user? ;)

I'm not pulling your leg. If you believe both methods are viable, why not give your app that polished feel and let the user decide?

Yep,

not bad. Will have to do some juggling when the user switches (without restarting the app of course), but it might do the trick.

Thanks
