    Default JFrame Edit

    Hello, I was wondering how to edit the characteristics for the picture. I'm trying to make it so that I can specify a width, height, and location where the image appears. Here's my Main class...

    package JavaGame;
    import java.awt.Color;
    import java.awt.Container;
    import javax.swing.JFrame;
    import JavaGame.movingsprite;
    public class Main {
        //movingsprite ='s Garrets playa
        public static void main(String[] args) {
            JFrame f = new JFrame("Girl Trauma");
            Container fc = f.getContentPane();
            f.setSize(800, 800);
            f.setLocation(100, 100);
            movingsprite tim = new movingsprite();

    and here's my code for the movingsprite class...

    package JavaGame;
    import javax.swing.*;
    public class movingsprite extends javax.swing.JFrame{
        public movingsprite() {
            a = new javax.swing.JLabel();
            a.setIcon(new javax.swing.ImageIcon("C:/Documents and Settings/apcompsci/My Documents/NetBeansProjects/JavaApplication42/src/JavaGame/bball.jpg"));
        public static void main(String args[]){
            java.awt.EventQueue.invokeLater(new Runnable() {
                public void run() {
                    new movingsprite().setVisible(true);
        private javax.swing.JLabel a;

    Default Re: JFrame Edit

    If you are looking to do some image movements and animation, you might be better off doing the custom drawing in a JPanel. See Trail: 2D Graphics (The Java™ Tutorials), most notably look at the Graphics object where you can draw an image (g.drawImage) by specifying the upper left and top coordinates. If you want to resize, look at Image getScaledInstance method.
