GWT AbsolutePanel

AbsolutePanel provides a simple x,y oriented layout. During layout, the component is shown moving with a tooltip showing its current location or size. Dynamic snap / alignment points are provided to make it convenient to align the component with other components or the window margin. Resizing a component also snaps to the preferred size of the resized component or to the size (vertical or horizontal) of any other component on the same parent.
