Hi Guys,

Iam new to Swing &about to start with my first GUI.
Had some questions to begin with.Thought of asking the experienced guys over here.

I have JFrame,as my top level container.want the frame to be maximised or fit to the screen of the computer on which it is running?.What is the best way to do it.

Also,In the content pane of the Frame,some components are to be added.

Should I use the frame's content pane or should I create a JPanel & make it,the contentpane of the frame & then add the components to the panel.What is the best way to do it?
For the panel,I intend to use the gridbaglayout.

Thanks in advance
K

Welcome to the Ranch kohinoor. Please correct your displayed name to the Ranch's naming policy.

If you are using a version of Java more recent than 1.4 (ie 5 or 6) you don't need to bother with content panes. You can write:CR
