    Question not able to set JFrame size , developing using Eclipse

    Hi,
    I hope some one can tell me what i am doing wrong

    i am getting the screen size, using the defaultToolkit,

    and setting my JFrame size to the same size as that returned by that method(defaulttoolkit.getscreensize)

    but my frame takes on a fixed size that is very small

    i changed its size to double the screen size, but still it had the same original size,

    Where are you setting the screensize?
    Cause I had a similar problem when developing in NetBeans, so I have overridden the setVisible method and put it in there.

    Code:
    public void setVisible(boolean state)
    {
      this.setScreenSize();
      super(state);
    }
    This solved the problem for me.

    That is what i dont know,
    becasue i have developed swing applcations before and never had this problem,

    is there something in eclipse that causes this to happen??

    if i create a panel and add it to the frame and set the preferered size for the panel then it is showing at the size that i give,

    but if i set the size for the frame it is not reflected at runtime!!!!
