if your class extends JFrame,JWindow,Frame or any other container
use
Dimension d = getToolkit().getScreenSize();
otherwise ,
([frameinstance]).getToolkit().getScreenSize();
u can also get the screenResolution using
getToolkit().getScreenRevolution();

Hi,
There is no need for ur application to extend any class to get the toolkit object. U can get the default toolkit kit by a static method getDefaultToolKit()in java.awt.Toolkit class.
U can check ur screen size with the following piece of code:
import java.awt.*;
public class ScreenSize {
public static void main(String str[])
{
Dimension dim = (Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit()).getScreenSize();
System.out.println("Your screen size is... width: "+ dim.width +" ; height: "+dim.height);
System.exit(0);
}
}
Hope this solves ur problem.
fazal.
