A good layout  manager for variable sized forms is GridBagLayout.

Sorry I cant answer your previous question, but perhaps use JFrame.

Be warned though ... GridBagLayout is insanly obscure, and painfull to
use at first.

A regular GridLayout would be very easy to use for a calculator.

For a simple calculator , GridLayout is already sufficient though...

Never tried, but i think you can use a window with a desktoppane and a
Whith Jinternalframe you can have those buttons  disabled.

For a swing container without maximize and minimize  buttons extend a
JDialog, try something like this:

class TestDialog extends javax.swing.JDialog

addWindowListener( new java.awt.event.WindowAdapter()
public void windowClosing(java.awt.event.WindowEvent e)
} );

public static void main(String[] args)
TestDialog thisDialog = new TestDialog();
