    Default JButton on JPanel

    Hi,

    Here is my code on how I add a JButton onto a JPanel. However, the JButton completely takes over the whole JPanel, how do I set the size of the JButton so it doesn't take over the whole JPanel?

    import java.awt.BorderLayout;
     
    import javax.swing.*;
     
    public class test extends JFrame {
     
    	public test() {
    		super("Title");
    		JPanel panel = new JPanel();
    		add(panel);
     
    		JButton mybutton = new JButton("TEST BUTTON");
    		getContentPane().add(mybutton);
    	}
     
    }

    Here is what it looks like:



    Any help is appreciated,

    thanks

    Default Re: JButton on JPanel

    I think you have used the MouseListener to draw the rectangle and circle on clicks is it? if so the clicks and release should be used.if you cick click control becomes true and the painting takes place else it will not.if it is not used u have used repaint() .It starts painting continuously so used false.
