Hi, What exactly does validate() do? I commented it out in various classes with no noticable change to the display. Thanks, Tom

Your question is missing the Class that you're talking about. Even though some of us may be able to guess it, it is better to be clear from the outset.

Sorry, it's in the Container class Thanks Tony! Tom

Hi Tom, <code>validate()</code> forces the Container to layout it's components. If the Container is not in an invalid state ie no change since last layout, the method call is ignored. Hope that helps. Jane
