I'm developing a gui to an application in 1280x1024; but the user can execute the application using 1024x768, or 1400x1150. I'am using null layout to place the components. I wanna know if there any kind of pattern, anyway, to solve this problem ?
Thanks.

Solution: Use Layout Managers.

I wholeheartedly agree with Gregg: the null Layout is evil (as is Borland's XYLayout...).

May be I did not understand your question correctly, but may be it will help:



Now your application does not depend of the user's screen resolution.

Surely that still leaves a problem if he is using null layout. The size of the JFrame might change according to the users screen size, but if the components are placed absolutely it still isn't guaranteed to look right.
