I'm having trouble setting the size of my Container. From the code below, when I place Container gamePane in a resizable JFrame and expand the frame, the spacing of the gamePane's contents expands to match the size of the frame despite my various attempts to keep the gameFrame at a set size.

if you're adding it via the frame's default layoutManager (BorderLayout), it will always occupy all the space.
