GridBagLayout as Layoutmanager for JFrame

I am trying to set the layout manager to GridBagLayout. The code is attached below. After seeting the default layout mgr [when the Frame object is first made], the layout manager seems to be not changing at all.
I run the 3 lines of code to set the GridbagLayout as the Layout manager. But the layout manager stays the same [the default is the Border Layout]..

Any thoughts?? is appreciated.

AbstractPrintFrame is a Abstract Class and it Extends JFrame
public class PrintPage extends AbstractPrintFrame implements

Container test = getContentPane();
GridBagLayout test1 = new GridBagLayout();

The GridBagLayout class api (in the javadocs) has an example app showing how to use it.
