I am doing that already..... But all of these are on fixed size not ratio based. In netbeans i have seen things in jpanel inside a jframe auto expand to fit the size of the jframe container. But when i try to code things nothing worked in eclipse. I usually use border layout with flow layout but things inside flow layout doesnt expand automatically with the ratio of jframe changes...


Yes, FlowLayout is not one to use for your requirement - it doesn't resize it just adds space before/after. Use a GridLayout, or go the whole hog and use a GridBagLayout for total control
