Have JFrame respect the minimum size (stop resizing) - Partial solution

SunforumsguestAug 21 2006 — edited Aug 21 2006
Hi

I remember I searched for a solution to make JFrame respect the minimum size of itself or it's components, but unfortunately there is no solution, at least not a satisfactory one.
The force-a-resize-if-it-gets-too-small "solution" looks really bad so I desided to drop the whole thing.

However I've been testing around with different Look & Feels and changing the layout, and what I discovered is that when setting setDefaultLookAndFeelDecorated(true) the minimum size is respected.

I haven't seen anyone mentioning this I thought I'd post it here.
import javax.swing.*;
import java.awt.*;

class RespectMinimumSize extends JFrame {
    
    RespectMinimumSize() {
	setMinimumSize(new Dimension(400, 400));
	setLocationRelativeTo(null);
	
	pack();
	setVisible(true);
    }
    
    public static void main(String [] args) {
	
	JFrame.setDefaultLookAndFeelDecorated(true);
	JDialog.setDefaultLookAndFeelDecorated(true); // Works with JDialog as well
	Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit().setDynamicLayout(true);
	
	new RespectMinimumSize();
    }
}
