Is there a way to create an empty border on the
's contentpane, so that when I add components to it the will not be placed flushed with the sides? I would like to do this without having to add a
to the contentpane first. Thank you.

All you have to do is cast the content pane to a
and set the border...
((JComponent)getContentPane()).setBorder( BorderFactory.createMatteBorder( 10, 10, 10, 10, Color.blue ) );
Write once, run anywhere, because there's nowhere to hide! - /. A.C.
