1  Game Development / Newbie & Debugging Questions / Window/Frame true size on: 2007-04-09 05:42:04
I am fairly new to game programming in java and actually quite new to java in general.  However, I am keen on making a game as my learning process for the language.  I was browsing a site that listed common problems that arise when programming games in Java and one such problem was that when creating a JFrame of dimension width x height, the entire frame (title bar & borders included) takes up the space of width x height, rather than the actually drawable area being of that size.  An easy solution, they list, is to insert a Canvas object of the size you truly want.  However, after over an hour of fiddling around there doesn't seem anything easy about this to me  Embarrassed.

Basically, what I've been trying, is to create my frame, then I create a canvas and change the canvas size with .setSize(width,height).  After this I try inserting it into my frame, but my frame doesn't appear to change in size from this. 

I have found the answer in pack()
