How to work with border layout position options in Java?


Let us see some examples to work with different border layout position options such as PAGE_START, PAGE_END, etc.

The following is an example of BorderLayout.PAGE_START option

Example

package my;
import java.awt.BorderLayout;
import javax.swing.JButton;
import javax.swing.JFrame;
import javax.swing.JPanel;
import javax.swing.JTextArea;
import javax.swing.JToolBar;
public class SwingDemo {
   public static void main(String[] args) {
      JPanel panel = new JPanel(new BorderLayout());
      JToolBar toolbar = new JToolBar();
      panel.add(toolbar, BorderLayout.PAGE_START);
      toolbar.add(new JTextArea(" Add name here"));
      toolbar.add(new JButton("Submit Name"));
      toolbar.addSeparator();
      toolbar.add(new JTextArea(" Add age here"));
      toolbar.add(new JButton("Submit Age"));
      toolbar.add(new JButton("Clear"));
      toolbar.add(new JButton("Refresh"));
      toolbar.addSeparator();
      JFrame frame = new JFrame(BorderLayout.PAGE_START);
      frame.setTitle("Demo BorderLayout PAGE_START Option");
      frame.setContentPane(panel);
      frame.setDefaultCloseOperation(JFrame.EXIT_ON_CLOSE);
      frame.setLocationByPlatform(true);
      frame.pack();
      frame.setSize(550, 200);
      frame.setVisible(true);
   }
}

output

The following is an example of BorderLayout.PAGE_END option

Example

package my;
import java.awt.BorderLayout;
import javax.swing.JButton;
import javax.swing.JFrame;
import javax.swing.JPanel;
import javax.swing.JTextArea;
import javax.swing.JToolBar;
public class SwingDemo {
   public static void main(String[] args) {
      JPanel panel = new JPanel(new BorderLayout());
      JToolBar toolbar = new JToolBar();
      panel.add(toolbar, BorderLayout.PAGE_END);
      toolbar.add(new JTextArea(" Add name here"));
      toolbar.add(new JButton("Submit Name"));
      toolbar.addSeparator();
      toolbar.add(new JTextArea(" Add age here"));
      toolbar.add(new JButton("Submit Age"));
      toolbar.add(new JButton("Clear"));
      toolbar.add(new JButton("Refresh"));
      toolbar.addSeparator();
      JFrame frame = new JFrame(BorderLayout.PAGE_END);
      frame.setTitle("Demo BorderLayout PAGE_END Option");
      frame.setContentPane(panel);
      frame.setDefaultCloseOperation(JFrame.EXIT_ON_CLOSE);
      frame.setLocationByPlatform(true);
      frame.pack();
      frame.setSize(550, 200);
      frame.setVisible(true);
