Java BorderLayout Example

Notes:

  • The BorderLayout divides a container's space into five areas: north, south, east, west, and center.
  • The BorderLayout class defines five constants to identify each of the five areas. The constants are NORTH, SOUTH, EAST, WEST, and CENTER.
  • The default layout for the content pane of a JFrame is a BorderLayout.
