Found another small issue.
When using TextFields, SpringGridLayout recognizes margins properly for containers they are inside.
I tried adding them back in and by using MigLayout parameters but it doesn’t work. To overcome this, wrap the TextField in a container using SpringGridLayout and add that container to the container using the MigLayout.
You can also just remove the margin from the container but that doesn’t look as nice.
//When using SpringGridLayout, a containers margin is recongnized as 1 px.
//When using MigLayout, the layout doesn't appear to account for this on
//some components. The TextField component is one of them that is
//affected by this behaviour. We need to either remove the margin from
//the SpringGridLayout container or wrap the TextField in a container
//using SpringGridLayout and add that to the migLayout container.
