Do you think to extend this feature to Swing in the future ?.
It's already there. It's called SpringLayout
In general, the layout managers that you see in Designer are the ones that are available for that platform. We didn't create any of them. SWT defines layout managers that are different from Swing and vice versa. Some, like SWT FormLayout and Swing SpringLayout, are very similar. In some cases, there are no equivalents. We do not plan to port any layout managers from SWT to Swing or from Swing to SWT. If someone else does that and makes them freely available, we might add support for them in Designer (if they prove useful).
