Hello forum, Vaironl here.
I already asked this question with no luck. So now I will to repost it without the code.

I have a JPanel which contains labelsand JTextField + other components.
When I minize the window and then restore it The components stay in place but the are re sizing off screen ( The end is getting bigger, for example if a Jtextfield was 40char long now is 80char long).

Any suggestion about what might be doing this? I have the code if needed.
I assume it might be the GridBagConstraints.

just send that code dude... dono how's this possible ... will clear this issue..

maybe you coud try setting the bounds of components by setBounds() and setMaximumSize(Dimension) and even setPreferredSize(Dimension) methods?

Thanks for the suggestion but I believe I found the one line of code that it's making it act this way.

The Frame layout is set to FlowLayout.Left

When I change it, it doesn't move but the position is disoriented.
I tried different layouts but I can't figure out how to fix it.

Check here i hope this may help:http://java.sun.com/developer/onlineTraining/GUI/AWTLayoutMgr/shortcourse.html and here is a link on a whole bunch of layouts and how to use them:http://java.sun.com/developer/technicalArticles/GUI/AWTLayoutMgr/

what's an aswers is

no never setBounds, this is job for LayoutManager, occasionally you can place that by take Insets, but why not use MigLayout

most of LayoutManagers pretty ignored setXxxSize

@vaironl

1) class Frame

- never set Name for class that could be in conflict with API or methods name, rename that as MyFrame
- same for your second class with name Panel, remane that to MyPanel
- every java imports (excluding FlowLayout) are useless
- JFrame (from Java5) have got implemented BOrderLayout by Default
- frame.setVisible(true); would be last line in main method

then will be come rest ....

I dont really get what you mean, but i was just suggesting methods i thought that would make components usually non resizeable,seems they didnt work. but atleast you gave the OP a better solution then me:)

Thanks Mr.Korbel.

I fixed up many things on the panel and the frame which are now different.
I noticed that the insets might also be playing a part in this. Both the FlowLayout, and Insets are causing problems, I will try to fiddle more with them.

Fixed it, the problem was the padding of the ScrollPane.
I changed the size of all padded components to fit the screen
