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 :
  new BorderLayout()

resulting in no space between components.
