Flipping Cards

Normally you add a panel with its own layout manager to each card. Each card should have some means for navigating between cards. The AWT does not provide one. Finally note that you can add the same component to more than one card. This is useful, for example, for creating a Choice menu with the names of all the cards as a navigation aid.

The following five CardLayout methods allow you to switch cards. In all cases you must specify the container inside of which you're flipping. This can be the applet, the window, or the panel that's arranged with this card layout.

 public void first(Container parent)
 public void next(Container parent)
 public void previous(Container parent)
 public void last(Container parent)
 public void show(Container parent, String name)
