I am sorry for such a basic question. I would like to create a GUI Calculator which does 4 operations. A vary basic stuff just to play around with GUI components.
But I have hard time to control the size, position, spacing of the component. Also when the whole thing is displayed, the size of the frame is totally different than the one I designed in the GUI. At runtime, the frame crops to surround all the components leaving zero margin. The buttons seems to be resized base on I don't know what rule. Granted I am new to GUI Java programming but I believe drawing a calculator GUI should not be that difficult.
Can you please show me the basic steps to draw a decent calculator?
Thanks very much in advance.
