Thanks for the help but now I'm pulling my hair out with another thing.... How do I properly position a button (or anything else), and have it at a locked size? Also how do I lock jframe?

ARG!!!!!!!!!!

This is really driving me nuts.

Can some one create a simple JFrame with two buttons(One realy big, one realy small) and have one bottom left and the other upper right and have the JFrame at a size of 800x800. I know how to make the buttons work, so listeners are not needed. I just need to see how to size and position things.

I tried using the Borderlayout with no succss. I tried add(button, BorderLayout.SOUTH) but it still goes north.

Please help me......

I have given you simple code to positioning a button ok just look at this one..


import java.awt.*;
import java.awt.event.*;
import javax.swing.*;
public class a extends JFrame
{
// Variables declaration
private JButton jButton1;
private JPanel contentPane;
// End of variables declaration

public a()
{
super();
initializeComponent();
this.setVisible(true);
}


private void initializeComponent()
{
jButton1 = new JButton();
contentPane = (JPanel)this.getContentPane();


jButton1.setBackground(new Color(182, 169, 92));
jButton1.setText("jButton1");
jButton1.addActionListener(new ActionListener() {
public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e)
{
jButton1_actionPerformed(e);
}

});

contentPane.setLayout(null);
addComponent(contentPane, jButton1, 140,107,83,28);

this.setTitle("a - extends JFrame");
this.setLocation(new Point(0, 0));
this.setSize(new Dimension(390, 300));
}

private void addComponent(Container container,Component c,int x,int y,int width,int height)
{
c.setBounds(x,y,width,height);
container.add(c);
}

private void jButton1_actionPerformed(ActionEvent e)
{
System.out.println("\njButton1_actionPerformed(ActionEvent e) called.");

}


` public static void main(String[] args)
{
JFrame.setDefaultLookAndFeelDecorated(true);
JDialog.setDefaultLookAndFeelDecorated(true);
try
{
UIManager.setLookAndFeel("com.sun.java.swing.plaf.windows.WindowsLookAndFeel");
}
catch (Exception ex)
{
System.out.println("Failed loading L&F: ");
System.out.println(ex);
}
new a();
}

}

addComponent(contentPane, jButton1, 140,107,83,28);


by changing these four values 140,107,83,28

you can change the position and size of the button
