Is there a quick or "automatic" way to ensure that the ratio height/width for a JFrame is kept constanting after a user resizes the frame or do I have to handcode ?

I don't think there is. Why do you need to keep aspect ratio, if you don't mind me asking?

I am making a boardgame and thought it would be nice that the ratio always equalled the ratio for the size of a real life board for the game
I think I know how to do it, so no problem anymore.

Moving to our GUIs forum.

And please tell us what the solution is, so others can learn. And maybe somebody can improve your solution
