        Rectangle r = new Rectangle();

        r.x=xLoc;
        r.y=yLoc;
        Dimension size;
        int count = 0;
        for(int i=0;i< -(count-1000))

        System.out.println("x Location = "+xLoc);
    }
    public int getxLocation()
    {
        return xLoc;
    }
  }

My problems are

1.Marquee text's movement more quick,when I click a menuitem one times and one times.
2.When I resize my frame,frame expands as much as Marquee text's length has.My marquee text is very very long.May be nearly 4000 width of text.(At that time ,I can't resize my frame)

Thank in advance.
