I am trying to size a dialog based on the screen resolution. here is the code....
toolKit = Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit();
screenSize = toolKit.getScreenSize();
width = (int) screenSize.getWidth();
height = (int) screenSize.getHeight();
width = width - (width / 1.5);
height = height - (height / 2);
setSize( (int) width, (int) height);
This works well for JFrames, but wont work for my dialog.
Any ideas why?

Hi,
the code was just ok, but instead of calling the setSize(int, int) method, call setBounds ( int, int, int, int ). I have used this in my applications and it equally works with JFrame and JDialog. Refer JDK Doc for further information about the parameters.
Thanks.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
