Border Layout

BorderLayout.is a frequently used layout manager. The container it manages corresponds to a rectangle on the screen. That rectangle is divided up into five regions:

Each region may hold only one component, although that component may be a panel (and usually is). The panel may contain several components. The layout manager adjusts the size of the regions depending on what is in them. You don't have to put a component in each region. If a region has no component in it, it shrinks to a small area.


Add to its frame the three panels from the ideal weight application, genderPanel, heightPanel, resultPanel.

// Add Panels to the Frame
setLayout( new BorderLayout() );
add( genderPanel, BorderLayout. );
add( heightPanel, BorderLayout. );
add( resultPanel, BorderLayout. );
