    Default Want to move my button away from center.

    Hello. I am trying to move my button to the topmost part of my application's window.

    import java.awt.*;
    import java.awt.event.*;
    import javax.swing.*;
     
    public class test extends JFrame{
     
    public test()
    {
    super("A window");
    setSize(500,500);
    setComponentOrientation(ComponentOrientation.LEFT_TO_RIGHT);
     
    JPanel panel=new JPanel();
     
    JButton button=new JButton("Hey my name is bob");
    panel.setLayout(new GridBagLayout());
    GridBagConstraints constraints=new GridBagConstraints();
    constraints.gridwidth=10;
    constraints.gridheight=10;
    constraints.gridx=0;
    constraints.gridy=0;
    constraints.fill=GridBagConstraints.BOTH;
    panel.add(button,constraints);
    add(panel);
     
    setVisible(true);
     
     
    	}
     
    public static void main(String[] s) {
        	test a=new test();
     
        }
     
     
    }

    I read the java sun tuts on gridbaglayout but I am still struggling as far as learning how to place controls.Can someone tell me how to position componenets on a gridbaglayout pane the exact way i want them to be layed out?

    Instead of using GridBagLayout, try using FlowLayout. It will set the button to the top center of the panel.
