applet size

I have an issue and I'm sure its something silly that I've missed in my code but I can't seem to pinpoint it. Forgive me, I'm still a GUI beginner.

In my run method I'm setting the size for the applet window but when I try to run it it appears to run at some default size and not the size I've set it to be (620, 410). Does anyone see something I might be missing? Could this possibly be an issue with Eclipse and not my code? Code is below, I've bolded where I'm setting the size...

I added a line to the end of your run method

and got this in the console
frame size = java.awt.Dimension[width=620,height=410]
Seems to run okay from the command line (no IDE).

Okay, must be an Eclipse thing. Thanks!
I agree. Here's the link:
