I can't change the default size of a jbutton. the button actually shows in the northern section, but takes up the entire width and i don't want it to.

setPreferredSize() works, but only adjusts the height, not the width. the width still consumes the entire frame.

I know you said you said never mind but an obvious solution is, as you say, to use FlowLayout:

//button1.setMaximumSize(new Dimension(5,5));
JPanel flowNorth = new JPanel(); // defaults to centered FlowLayout
flowNorth.add(button1);
frame1.getContentPane().add(BorderLayout.NORTH, flowNorth);

[edit: oops, no need to set button's max size]
