Hey guys, when I run my code the button is stretched the full length of the panel, ive tried the following

- re sizing the panel
- setBounds
- setPreferredSize
- setMaximumSize
- setMinimumSize

Any ideas how to shrink it?

I'm confused as to why you have the JPanel variable "pan". You go to a lot of trouble setting it up, but then you don't use it in the GUI.

I know it should represent what it means or what it's doing but that's not the point of this question. The question is why isn't the button re-sizing?

But your question claims that you're using MigLayout. I don't see that you are using MigLayout, because you create a panel which uses MigLayout but then throw it away. So MigLayout is a red herring.

My apologies if I come off as misleading but where abouts do I "throw it out"? Do you mean in my code or in my responses?

In your code. Can you point out the line of code which adds the "pan" JPanel into your GUI?

Why do you set the layout twice here?
Why use a migLayout for a single component?

What would you recommend to use for just one component?

That depends on what the desired behavior is regarding that one component's size and position within its parent container. Without knowing more about that I could only speculate that either FlowLayout or GridBagLayout would be the best choice.
