When I resize my frame (using button between minimize and close) I get few random components added to my frame (like JFileChooser) and JComponents which I added disappear.

Can some one please say something about such a behavior :(

sounds like you're not changing your ;layout correctly
may sure you call revalidate()/repaint() on any panel after you change its layout

The problem is not when I am moving/adding but when I am resizing frame

when I say resize I actually mean resizing by clicking the by default 'restore' button between minimize and close tab ..even if I just increase height or width of frame using mouse .. the effect is same ..

Shall i try to resize frame in program on pressing a button ?? I mean is this what you want me to try when you asked  "if you resize the frame by increasing onli width or height, do they dissapear in the same way?"

definitely sounds like your not adding/removing components correctly (causing the panel to be not laid out as directed). When you resize the frame the frame gets laid out so that why you see the problem then.

As i mentioned in an earlier question. Using a null layout will cause you problems. These are some of them. Be prepared for more

how the components that disappear are added to your container? by add and setBounds() or not?

you'll get the same problem regardless of whether you use a layout manager or not (in fact it gets more complicated using a layout manager because adding a component can cause other to move)

see my earlier comments for likely cause of the problem.

the resizing of the frame will trigger the panel being layed out and repainted. displaying any problems that have been caused by the layout being dynamically being changed earlier
