Hi Ranchers!

I will describe my problem now.
I have JTable and JPanel which is set in the JFrame. I want JTable fills the entire area of the JFrame and it should expand and shrink with JFrame/JPanel. When I use BorderLayout of JFrame and FlowLayout of JPanel it does not work and the JTable is in the centre.

Could You suggest what kind of LayoutManager I should use?

Take your pick

And a JTable would normally be displayed in a JScrollPane, which you haven't mentioned, so you may want to go through the tutorial linked from the JTable API.

luck, db
