I have a JPanel with gridlayout (0, 2). I am adding a label in the first and button in the second column. The button resizes to cover the enter cell.

How can I set the size of the button? I have tried
setMaximumSize
setSize
setPreferredSize

nothign works

Hi Cathy

You may add a label in the first and a JPanel in the second column. The JPanel will resize to cover the enter cell. Then you add a button into that JPanel, and set the size of the button by setPreferredSize.

Btw, I could recommend you to use JFrameBuilder to try that. Quickly to see what's going on, and Quickly to get the GUI code generated for you.
