Post OverLay JPanel in Content Pane?
I have a JDialog with multiple panels [All JPanel's].
One JPanel is the "Button Panel"
On the "Button Panel" I have added a new JButton [bAdditionalOptions] designed to provide
addition JButton's to manage some Embedded Database parameters.

I had intended to create a new JDialog to service these options.
However, it occurred to me that I should just overlay the "Button Panel' with a new
JPanel that host the additional options JButton's...

I tried the 'cell' and 'pos' tags in the content pane .add command to no avail.
After the .add command I rePaint() the main dialog expecting to see my new JPanel over the
existing components.

I think MigLayout will do what I want but I have not found the right approach or any example code
that does this.

Please advise,

P.S. I am using version 3.7 and developing on a Mac OS X 10.6.8 iMac system...

I resolved this situation without using any MigLayout overlay capability.

Probably a better way to code the shared JPanel components...
