Hi,

Can anybody tell me how can i set attributes of frame or components in a frame in ActionListener of a button.

Regards.

Just quick pseudo-code

public void actionPerfomed
if resize
     myFrame.setSize(new Dimension(300, 300))
else if changeFont
    myFrame.setFont(new Font( "Serif", Font.BOLD, 20 ));

you should get idea of it

i have tried what has been told above as

this.setSize();

but "this" is not recognized within ActionListener.
And i have extended frame class so there is no name for the frame as well.

Regards.

"this" IS recognised inside the actionlistener, it's just not what you think it is.

Learn a bit more about Java and you will see why, and what "this" is out there.

At the moment you're expecting quick hacks for everything without really understanding what you're doing.
That's the wrong way to go about programming.

Do simple things first until you thoroughly understand those, and only then try something more complicated (and adding an actionListener is NOT complicated, so if you have problems with that you need to really step back a lot).

post some relevant code please

Here is the code i am using.

As i have extended the frame it has no name. And "this" in actionListener points to the button. Then how can i use frame.setSize()

post some relevant code please

no, "this" in the actionlistener points to the actionlistener...
this in any class instance points to that instance.

And don't put comments on every closing brace, it's not needed and makes your code that much harder to read.
And don't use C++ style comments for blocks.

try having the action listener call a method that resizes the frame instead of resizing the frame directly
