Currently my application is in JDK1.1.5. I want to port it to JDK1.2.
I want to use Swing components in my application.
I have been using setLayout(null) method for absolute placing of the components.
setLayout(null) doesn't seem to work in JFC.

Is there any alternative for absolute placing of components.(i.e. any alternative method in Swing for setLayout(null) method.

Cheers swamy

I'd strongly recommend using layout managers.  Your current technique will not
work properly on differing platforms and screen resolutions.

JFC works with null layout. I use it all the time.
Example:
 JButton button = new JButton("OK");
 button.setSize(100, 100);     // you can use button.reshape(100, 100, 100, 100) instead
 button.setLocation(100, 100);
 this.add(button);

The JFC doesn't work with null layout if your class extends JFrame.

Any other workaround.....

Add JPanel to your JFrame. (MyJFrame.getContentPane().add(new MyJPanel)).
JPanel works with null layout.
