    Lightbulb Can not retrieve full photo on java application, is it wrong with the way using JPanel setLayout ?

    Hi all,

    I complete an interface and it does a good job for searching photo.
    However, I got a problem now with photos displayed on application interface.

    The problem here

    imageprogram.jpg

    The photo are not displayed 100% on the interface, it seems that the photos are covered by something.

    I think a reason may be the way I am organizing JPanel or something else wrong ???

    This is a complete code of interface class:

    Can you make a small complete program that compiles, executes and shows the problem? There is no way to test the posted code.

    Do you mean the jar file after executing ? or whole source code of all classes in this application ?

    I am using BlueJ IDE to code.

    Make a small program that compiles, executes and shows the problem. If the problem is in the GUI, nothing else needs to be in the testing program.
    Don't post a jar file or the code for the whole project.

    I run the program and it works fine, there is no error. so I think the problem should be from GUI.

    By the way, "Make a small program that compiles, executes and shows the problem" means I should code something like JUnit Testing ???? from this program (like Junit testing) , it trace and show me the hidden error ???

    No, a small, testable program (http://sscce.org/) has nothing to do with JUnit testing. It's a way to show the problem without a lot of extra, useless code getting in the way.

    I run the program and it works fine
    If the program works fine, have you found and solved the problem?

    Thanks for a website as Short, Self Contained, Correct Example,

    However, error is not shown up although the whole photos are not displayed fully.

    I think of the way using JPANEL as container, this can lure me into the problem.

    I use many JPanel as layers, one contains the others,

    as I make a new interface class for only search, simple with one container , 2 JPanel such as photoPanel and searchPanel
    searchPanel contains textfield and search button
    photoPanel shows photos when searching.
    =>The whole photos are fully displayed.

    then I lost my way now. Mostly I used BorderLayout to set positions of each JPanel.

    If you can't make a SSCCE, there is no way I can test to find problems.

    By the way, Norm, could you tell me how I use the the SSCCE Text Based Compiler.

    I copy my code n paste on the editor, however the error pops up saying that:

    No Complier Found in aa/bx/x.java
    It asks Tool.jar to run, but I can find it in many folders from JRE 7 and J2RE.x.x.x

    how I use the the SSCCE Text Based Compiler.
    I'v never heard of that. I use the javac command to compile java programs:
    D:\Java\jdk1.6.0_29\bin\javac.exe -Xlint TestCode11.java

    Ask Google about using DOS commands in windows.
