Can you tell me the alternative to preferredSize()? It is deprecated in the current version of java.

I want to do this:
chartPanel.setSize(chartPanel.preferredSize().width, 100);
chartPanel is a JPanel.

Thanks!

But I want to get the preferred size and use the width property, and change the height.

preferredSize() is deprecated.

after you get Dimension you can create a new Dimension(olddim.width+some, olddim.height)
and set it as a new new preferred szie

In general don't be afraid so much of yusing deprecated if it is conveninent to you - it writes the compiler warning,
but it works

I think this should be equivalent:
chartPanel.setSize(chartPanel.getPreferredSize().width, 100);

Avoid deprecated methods (they're not deprecated for fun ;))

Just add to the width or height as you see fit, having got the Dimension with getPreferredSize
