I'm trying to position a [child component] JDialog by using the setLocation(120,0), wDialog.setBounds(120 + lInsets.left,lInsets.top,wDialog.getWidth(),wDialog.getHeight()); but it keeps displaying partially off the screen, to the left.
TIA,
-Will

"will" -

Welcome to the JavaRanch! Please adjust your displayed name to meet the
JavaRanch Naming Policy.
You can change it here.

Where are the values in lInsets coming from? Could this possibly be returning negative values?

Thanks! and welcome to the JavaRanch!

Nate:
The lInsets have the value 0, they're coming from the parent.
Thanks

Nate:
Thanks for the help. I ended up "shrinking" the size of the JDialog and that did the trick...I still don't understand why the other methods didn't work but I guess this will do.
