Hi

I have a dialog its having flowlayout. On that dialog I hve added a panel which is also having flow layout.

I have displayed a image on the panel, but its not occupying the whole screen. its gettting applied only to the center of the dialog.

I want to show that image all over the screen... how I can do that


thanks

You need to scale the image to cover the entire space available. Using a FlowLayout is not the way to go since a FlowLayout always uses the preferred size of the component. So you should probably be using a BorderLayout. You can then add your image to the Background Panel.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
