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.
