I would like to right align the y coordinate labels - I am
somewhat familiar with the Label.RIGHT method but I'm unsure
how to implement.

i don't know what is your current code -
- do you use some LayoutManager,
- do you use Label components
- you paint everything yourself ...

in case you use Label components, here is the appropriate code

labelXY = new Label("X,Y :",Label.RIGHT);
labelXY.setBounds(440,400,60,24); // will align the label at position 500

if you paint the text in your paint method, you'll have to make all computations yourself.

if you still have problems, please post the appropriate code.

hope this helps

Actually I paint everything - could you briefly explain the "computations" a bit.  I assume I can still utilize the labelXY = new Label("X,Y :",Label.RIGHT); code?
