Hey

I'm looking for some help with the below code, As far as i can gather the code for the clip board is correct as i have it working in simple Jframe and it is working right.
I just cant get it to wotk on the code below, i had other methods in the action preformed, but i've taken them out so its easier to read. If any one can see the problem it would be great. The only error that i am getting is for the dimension size, but it jframe runs fine even with that.

Thanks

Derek

What isn't working? Are you getting an exception? A compilation error? Are you getting the wrong layout? The wrong output? A bit more information would help us help you.
