    Default button not resizing in awt


    I am adding a button to a panel with GridBagLayout

    I resize it using a Dimension object:

    Dimension dim = new Dimension(30,10);

    Button myButton = new Button();

    neither myButton.setSize(dim);
    nor myButton.setPreferredSize(dim);

    are working.... Not sure what else to do :mad:

    After you change the preferred size of an awt component you need to call invalidate() on it, and then call validate() on the frame containing the component.

    In swing this done automatically for you with a single revalidate() call. Although, technically swing doesn't travel all the way up to the frame to call validate(). It travels up to the the first component that returns true for JComponent#isValidateRoot.
