    Question JAVA Image Icon and JButton resizing problem

    Hi everyone,

    I am stuck on a JAVA problem again.

    I want to figure out how to do a ImageIcon resize.

    Here is my following code:

    ImageIcon imageClickForMovies = new ImageIcon("clickForMovies1.GIF");
    JButton buttonClickForMovies = new JButton(imageClickForMovies);

    If anyone can explain to me how to resize the ImageIcon and the Jbutton, that would be great. By the way, I am a very simple-minded person. So, please explain instructions carefully, so that it is in an understandable manner for me.

    - Nathe

    Default Re: JAVA ImageIcon and JButton resizing problem -- please go easy on me. :)?

    Hello Nathe,

    What type of layout are you using? The different layouts will effect how you resize these components.

    Here is a really good tutorial on layouts that leads onto how to size swing components and set their position:

    A Visual Guide to Layout Managers (The Java™ Tutorials > Creating a GUI with JFC/Swing > Laying Out Components Within a Container)

    Here is a quick method you can try first:

    JButton button = new JButton ("Click me");
    Please use [highlight=Java] code [/highlight] tags when posting your code.
