Subject Re: Specifying Main Window Size in Desktop App
Date Fri, 02 Oct 2009 16:41:57 GMT
Is is possible to get a reference to the frame and pack it so you don't 
need the exact size?

For instance in a Swing Application Framework based app, I may do this 
in the startup method:

this.getApplication().getMainView().getFrame().pack();

Thanks, Carl
