/**
 * A non-visual builder that assists you in building consistent button bars
 * that comply with popular UI style guides. It utilizes the {@link FormLayout}.
 * This class is in turn used by the 
 * {@link com.jgoodies.forms.factories.ButtonBarFactory} that provides 
 * an even higher level of abstraction for building consistent button bars.<p>
 * 
 * Buttons added to the builder are either gridded or fixed and may fill
 * their FormLayout cell or not. All gridded buttons get the same width,
 * while fixed buttons use their own size. Gridded buttons honor 
 * the default minimum button width as specified by the current 
 * {@link com.jgoodies.forms.util.LayoutStyle}.<p>
 * 
 * You can set an optional hint for narrow  margin for the fixed width buttons.
 * This is useful if you want to lay out a button bar that includes a button
 * with a long text. For example, in a bar with
 * 'Copy to Clipboard', 'OK', 'Cancel' you may declare the clipboard button 
 * as a fixed size button with narrow margins, OK and Cancel as gridded.
 * Gridded buttons are marked as narrow by default.
 * Note that some look&amp;feels do not support the narrow margin feature,
 * and conversely, others have only narrow margins. The JGoodies look&amp;feels
 * honor the setting, the Mac Aqua l&amp;f uses narrow margins all the time.<p>
 * 
 * To honor the platform's button order (left-to-right vs. right-to-left)
 * this builder uses the <em>leftToRightButtonOrder</em> property.
 * It is initialized with the current LayoutStyle's button order,
 * which in turn is left-to-right on most platforms and right-to-left
 * on the Mac OS X. Builder methods that create sequences of buttons 
 * (e.g. {@link #addGriddedButtons(JButton[])} honor the button order.
 * If you want to ignore the default button order, you can either
 * add add individual buttons, or create a ButtonBarBuilder instance
 * with the order set to left-to-right. For the latter see 
 * {@link #createLeftToRightBuilder()}. Also see the button order 
 * example below.<p>
 * 
 * <strong>Example:</strong><br>
 * The following example builds a button bar with <i>Help</i> button on the 
 * left-hand side and <i>OK, Cancel, Apply</i> buttons on the right-hand side.
 * <pre>
 * private JPanel createHelpOKCancelApplyBar(
 *         JButton help, JButton ok, JButton cancel, JButton apply) {
 *     ButtonBarBuilder builder = new ButtonBarBuilder();
 *     builder.addGridded(help);
 *     builder.addRelatedGap();
 *     builder.addGlue();
 *     builder.addGriddedButtons(new JButton[]{ok, cancel, apply});
 *     return builder.getPanel();
 * }
 * </pre><p>
 *  
 * <strong>Button Order Example:</strong><br>
 * The following example builds three button bars where one honors
 * the platform's button order and the other two ignore it.
 * <pre>
 * public JComponent buildPanel() {
 *     FormLayout layout = new FormLayout("pref");
 *     DefaultFormBuilder rowBuilder = new DefaultFormBuilder(layout);
 *     rowBuilder.setDefaultDialogBorder();
 *     
 *     rowBuilder.append(buildButtonSequence(new ButtonBarBuilder()));
 *     rowBuilder.append(buildButtonSequence(ButtonBarBuilder.createLeftToRightBuilder()));
 *     rowBuilder.append(buildIndividualButtons(new ButtonBarBuilder()));
 *     
 *     return rowBuilder.getPanel();
 * }
 * 
 * private Component buildButtonSequence(ButtonBarBuilder builder) {
 *     builder.addGriddedButtons(new JButton[] {
 *             new JButton("One"),
 *             new JButton("Two"),
 *             new JButton("Three")
 *     });
 *     return builder.getPanel();
 * }
 *
 * private Component buildIndividualButtons(ButtonBarBuilder builder) {
 *     builder.addGridded(new JButton("One"));
 *     builder.addRelatedGap();
 *     builder.addGridded(new JButton("Two"));
 *     builder.addRelatedGap();
 *     builder.addGridded(new JButton("Three"));
 *     return builder.getPanel();
 * }
