Full screen for JFrame - MVM

Full screen for JFrame - MVM

Post by On Al » Wed, 29 Nov 2006 22:22:14


Hi,

I have a linux machine which uses MVM as its window manager.

Some settings have been made that it shows undecorated windows.

I have a JFrame (swing frame) which I need to display full screen.

JFrame has some method like

JFrame.setExtendedState(JFrame.MAXIMIZED_BOTH);

it also has JFrame.setLocation(x, y) method to position the frame.

But neither seem to work in our setup.

Can anyone tell me what preferences/settings do i need to modify to
allow full screen and setlocation?

Thanks in advance

Regards,
On Ali

just to add on to that... the method
isFrameStateSupported(JFrame.MAXIMIZED_BOTH) returns false

Wrong newsgroup. This newsgroup concerns itself with questions
regarding the Motif toolkit used in Uix X-Windows systems.
You should try comp.lang.java.gui
