How to add an EmptyBorder to a JPanel?

Schade
Hi,
In the editor, select your panel and in the properties panel, clic on the "..." button of border field. Select "Empty border" and change "insets" by clicking again on the "...".
I used often "Compound border" for making insets in a component with border. It's like the previous method but with two borders to define and select empty border for the outside border.

But if you making a game with complex animation, maybe using Swing's component is not a good idea.
