/**
 * Demonstrates a <i>pure</i> use of the FormLayout.
 * Columns and rows are specified before the panel is filled with
 * components. And the panel is filled without a builder.<p>
 * 
 * This panel building style is simple but not recommended. Other panel
 * building styles use a builder to fill the panel and/or create
 * form rows dynamically. See the {@link PanelBuilderExample} for 
 * a slightly better panel building style that can use the builder
 * to create text labels and separators.
