    Have JFrame respect the minimum size (stop resizing) - Partial solution

    843805
      Hi

      I remember I searched for a solution to make JFrame respect the minimum size of itself or it's components, but unfortunately there is no solution, at least not a satisfactory one.
      The force-a-resize-if-it-gets-too-small "solution" looks really bad so I desided to drop the whole thing.

      However I've been testing around with different Look & Feels and changing the layout, and what I discovered is that when setting setDefaultLookAndFeelDecorated(true) the minimum size is respected.

      I haven't seen anyone mentioning this I thought I'd post it here.
      import javax.swing.*;
      import java.awt.*;
      
      class RespectMinimumSize extends JFrame {
          
          RespectMinimumSize() {
           setMinimumSize(new Dimension(400, 400));
           setLocationRelativeTo(null);
           
           pack();
           setVisible(true);
          }
          
          public static void main(String [] args) {
           
           JFrame.setDefaultLookAndFeelDecorated(true);
           JDialog.setDefaultLookAndFeelDecorated(true); // Works with JDialog as well
           Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit().setDynamicLayout(true);
           
           new RespectMinimumSize();
          }
      }
