    Default 2 quick questions

    Hey, everybody. I'm in AP Computer Science 1, and we have to do a project that requires us to use keys to move an actor around in GridWorld. We also need to maximize the JFrame, but for some reason I can't get it to maximize. So, my questions are:
    1. How do I maximize a JFrame and where in the code do I put it?
    2. How do I get the WASD keys to act as arrow keys and move around the grid?
    I don't have the code with me now, so I can't post what we currently have, but any possible help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    No worries, we're in no particular hurry.

    You'll need to measure the screen first, and then set the size of your frame based on that.

    2. How do I get the WASD keys to act as arrow keys and move around the grid?
    ActionListeners - specifically a KeyListener will do the trick.
