I created a java.awt.Frame object as the main window of my application.And I also want to create a children window when I click the button in the main window.Ok,I can do that.But I found the children window always appear in the top-left of the screen.
I don't like this appearance.So I want to know how to create a children Window and let it appear as the dimension of the the main Window's client area?
Any advice willbe greatly appreciated!

You gotto use Toolkit methods to center ur window on the screen, heres some code which could this method when u want to show the window..
public void showCenteredWindow()
Frame parent = (Frame)getParent();
Dimension dim = parent.getSize();
Point loc = parent.getLocationOnScreen();
Dimension size = getSize();
loc.x += (dim.width - size.width)/2;
loc.y += (dim.height - size.height)/2;
if (loc.x < 0) loc.x = 0;<br /> if (loc.y < 0) loc.y = 0;<br /> Dimension screen = getToolkit().getScreenSize();<br /> if (size.width > screen.width)<br /> size.width = screen.width;<br /> if (size.height > screen.height)
size.height = screen.height;
if (loc.x + size.width > screen.width)
loc.x = screen.width - size.width;
if (loc.y + size.height > screen.height)
loc.y = screen.height - size.height;
setBounds(loc.x, loc.y, size.width, size.height);
