I know I should have sorted this before I started but ..... I have created a java gui on Windows 7 with Eclipse EE, using a screen resolution of 1366 x 768. I used groups with specified boundaries. For example:

final Group g5_script_data = new Group(shell, SWT.BORDER_SOLID);
        g5_script_data.setText("Current DB");
        g5_script_data.setBounds(0, 0, 680, 380);
        g5_script_data.setBackground(green);


The groups cover the whole screen, many overlapping to form different configurations.

However one of my colleagues complained there was no righthand side scroll bar for a tree. It turned out to be just out of vision due to resolution.

As this is a proto-type and I'm new to Java I don't want to rework everything or convert it to say a grid layout until the proto-type is accepted and I can start from scratch with a real detailed design. It already has 6500 lines of source and 20 groups that intermingle to cover the whole screen.

Jusy wondered what is my quickest/easiest way to get my app to display on a slightly smaller resolution. For sure it will not be anything silly. Something like 1280 x 768 to 1366 x 768 would do.

Cheers in anticipation of something not too laborious.

Just to answer my own question in the hope it might help someone:

Display.getDefault().getBounds() 


Gives me the dimensions and then I can reset or proportion bounds of the groups on the screen. And yes it is a bit labourious but for a demo prototype that will be sufficient.
