Initially I was using 600x400 frame size. But I noticed that it appears fine one m/c and looks small on another m/c with same monitor size. This may be due to different resolution. Now I'm using Dimension wndSize = frame.getToolkit().getScreenSize(); int frameHeight = wndSize.height - 250; int frameWidth = wndSize.width - 250;
Setting the frame size to 800x600 on a system that doesnt support that high resolution might create problems. So personally I check if the screen resolution is 640x480 or above and if true set the frame size to that (640x480). If the resolution is smaller then i choose fullscreen to at least get as close to my prefered size as possible. Then again, the examiner probably has big hi-rez'd monitors so i dont think it will be much of a problem \Aron
