Using BorderLayout you can tell components to stick to a side of a Container :
or occupy the remaining space :
The contentpane's layout mode is set to BorderLayout in the init method, telling it to leave 5 pixels of space between components horizontally and 10 vertically.
If you mistakenly add components without telling them where to go :
add ( btn ) ,
only the last one added in this manner will be shown, taking up all space !
BorderLayout is default for contentpanes.
You can also create a BorderLayout like this :
resulting in no space between components.
