How to set location of JLabel in a JFrame with Java?

Java 8Object Oriented ProgrammingProgramming

To set location of a component in a JFrame, use the setBounds() method. Let us first create a frame and a panel −

JFrame frame = new JFrame("Demo Frame");
JPanel panel = new JPanel();
frame.getContentPane();

Create a component i.e. label and set the dimensions using setBounds(). Here, you can set the location in the form of x and y coordinates −

JLabel label = new JLabel("Demo Label!");
Dimension size = label.getPreferredSize();
label.setBounds(150, 100, size.width, size.height);

The following is an example to set location of a label in a JFrame −

Example

package my;
import java.awt.Dimension;
import javax.swing.BorderFactory;
import javax.swing.JFrame;
import javax.swing.JLabel;
import javax.swing.JPanel;
import javax.swing.WindowConstants;
public class SwingDemo {
   public static void main(String[] args) {
      JFrame frame = new JFrame("Demo Frame");
      JPanel panel = new JPanel();
      frame.getContentPane();
      JLabel label = new JLabel("Demo Label!");
      Dimension size = label.getPreferredSize();
      label.setBounds(150, 100, size.width, size.height);
      panel.setLayout(null);
      panel.add(label);
      panel.setBorder(BorderFactory.createEmptyBorder(10, 10, 10, 10));
      frame.setDefaultCloseOperation(WindowConstants.EXIT_ON_CLOSE);
      frame.add(panel);
      frame.setSize(500, 300);
      frame.setVisible(true);
   }
}
