I have a question asked in a mock exam from the book "Dreaming of Java" by Dilbert, Dogbert et al.
Which layout(s) is more useful, if you want the components to resize horizantally , but not vertically, when the
container is resized ?
Could someone answer this and explain it too, for the sake
of humanity ?

Shalini,

I think that the answer is BorderLayout. The components placed in NORTH and SOUTH in a BorderLayout have their preferred height honoured. So even if a component is resized the height of the components in north and south will not change but only their width.
Hope this helps

Well even in the border layout if the container is resized then the components are resized. Only flow layout honours the preferred size of the components the arrangements of the components is altered in the rows when the container is altered., in null layout we can set the bounds, in both the size does not change if we change the size of the container. Someone please answer this one from Shalini.

Hi Mr.Stupid Patel ,
I have cleared my JCP exam with 84%. Infact your statement "Are you clear your JCP exam?" makes no sense and may be you should learn english before learning java.
Regards,
Rajani

vishad patel (although you may be long gone) and rajani peddi,
This stops NOW!!!
This is no battlefield here, people are willing to learn here not watching stupid fights.
If you want to have a good fight go over to MD and do it there, but not in my forum, understood?
