I was looking through the various built-in layout panes in JavaFX and was wondering about the advantages of using BorderPane over GridPane. Which layout do you guys also believe will be best for the project?

I like to use BorderPane because it allows us to insert elements in left/center/right/up/down sections without having to deal with the resizing of elements when you go full screen, because they adjust automatically.

Yes, I have been using BorderPane too, and it has been wonderful! Thank you!

We are using/planning to use a mix of BorderPanes and GridPanes. In my experience, the former is better for things like toolbars while the latter is better for more central-screen layouts.

Oh thanks for your advice, for my team we are thinking of using HBox for toolbars and it has been easy to manipulate too!

I third for borderPanes and second for gridPanes, they help in positioning objects so much better than say a vBox.
