Absolute positioning

It is also possible to set the absolute position of the graphical components in this way:

  1. Set a null layout manager for your Container: setLayout(null).
  2. Call setBounds( ) or reshape( ) (depending on the language version) for each component, passing a bounding rectangle in pixel coordinates. You can do this in the constructor or in paint( ), depending on what you want to achieve.
