Hi!

Trying to make my first GUI in JAVA. A very simple program. The buttons on the welcome screen does not end up where I want them to...



The button appears on the same place on the welcome screen regardless if I use setBounds or not.

What have I missed?
(maybe this should have been in the Swing part of the forum, but Im a real newbie so I post it here...)
Regards
Hristo

It should, so I don't think Janeice, Campbell or Marc minds if I steal this thread

Ok, thanks for the link. Just to clearify, I do get an window, but all the buttons is misplaced. I will come back if I cant fix it using the information you provided.

Regards

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
