Supported Layout Managers

William | Last updated: Jun 17, 2015 07:15PM UTC

I've been noticing that when I use certain layout managers in my extension the extension no longer works. It doesn't throw any errors when I'm loading it, but it never creates its tab. What layout managers are actually supported? Or is this not supposed to be happening?

We're not aware of anything that Burp does that should cause any specific layout managers in extension-provided UI components from working. But Swing is full of surprises and there could possibly be some limitations imposed by Swing. FYI, Burp's own UI makes extensive use of BorderLayout, GridBagLayout, GridLayout and FlowLayout. Using any of those ought to work fine.
