How to center a Window in Java?

Question!

What's the easiest way to centre a java.awt.Window, such as a JFrame or a JDialog?



Answers

You could try this also.

       Frame frame = new Frame("Centered Frame");
       Dimension dimemsion = Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit().getScreenSize();
       frame.setLocation(dimemsion.width/2-frame.getSize().width/2, dimemsion.height/2-frame.getSize().height/2);


From blog.codebeach.com/2008/02/center-dialog-box-frame-or-window-in.html (now dead)

If you are using Java 1.4 or newer, you can use the simple method setLocationRelativeTo(null) on the dialog box, frame, or window to center it.



I finally got this bunch of codes to work in NetBeans using Swing GUI Forms in order to center main jFrame:

package my.SampleUIdemo;
import java.awt.*;

public class classSampleUIdemo extends javax.swing.JFrame {
    /// 
    public classSampleUIdemo() {
        initComponents();
        CenteredFrame(this);  // <--- Here ya go.
    }
    // ...
    // void main() and other public method declarations here...

    ///  modular approach
    public void CenteredFrame(javax.swing.JFrame objFrame){
        Dimension objDimension = Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit().getScreenSize();
        int iCoordX = (objDimension.width - objFrame.getWidth()) / 2;
        int iCoordY = (objDimension.height - objFrame.getHeight()) / 2;
        objFrame.setLocation(iCoordX, iCoordY); 
    } 

}

OR

package my.SampleUIdemo;
import java.awt.*;

public class classSampleUIdemo extends javax.swing.JFrame {
        /// 
        public classSampleUIdemo() {
            initComponents(); 
            //------>> Insert your code here to center main jFrame.
            Dimension objDimension = Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit().getScreenSize();
            int iCoordX = (objDimension.width - this.getWidth()) / 2;
            int iCoordY = (objDimension.height - this.getHeight()) / 2;
            this.setLocation(iCoordX, iCoordY); 
            //------>> 
        } 
        // ...
        // void main() and other public method declarations here...

}

OR

    package my.SampleUIdemo;
    import java.awt.*;
    public class classSampleUIdemo extends javax.swing.JFrame {
         /// 
         public classSampleUIdemo() {
             initComponents();
             this.setLocationRelativeTo(null);  // <<--- plain and simple
         }
         // ...
         // void main() and other public method declarations here...
   }
