The main window and most of the dialogs of my program are resizable. Is there any way to limit the minimum size since the windows start to get very ugly when reduced too far. I have tried setting the minimum and preferred sizes on all of the containers, but they seem to be ignored. Is this tied to the fact that they can be reduced to icon size and if the minimum were limited, then the icon would be that size as well?
I am using border layout manager
Thanks,
Roopa

U should use Gridbaglayaout. Your component is resizable so gridbaglayout is very helpful to u.
