hi

I am creating swing application for windows and mac. I am using to develop in windows for mac too.. after completion my app its working good in windows.

But in MAC the alignments were missing.




Actually the JFrame or JPanel size is missing and components are misplaced..

How to solve this issue in using null layout..?

What is the best way of doing swing application for platform independent UI support.?

Thank you for your kind reply.

Don't use null layout. Use a LayoutManager. Not sure which is best, but people speak well of MigLayout. You will have to use Google to find it.
