Hello,

        I have to place 3 labels and 3 text boxes on a frame for user input using Java Swing

         I have chosen Gridbaglayout and placed them as a combination of label and text box in each row. But the problem as the length of all the labels is not the same the placement of 3 text boxes are not same in the column..

        How to do this in swing...

bye,
Sobhan
