New to Swing AWT. How do you change the size of a JComponent many different times? Also, when does getPrefferedSize() get called? I am able to change the size of a JComponent once initially but I am unable to change the size again. I have the JComponent in a Border layout center position. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks, Warren Bell email@example.com
You can internally change the size of a component, but that doesn't do any kind of notification to repaint or re-layout the component. After changing the size, call invalidate(), validate(), and/or repaint().
