I asked for help, but i am still experiencing some problems from the help i got. I asked how you can bold and change the size of a label that is on a panel?
The following is the answer or help I got:

yourLabel.setFont(new Font("sanserif", Font.BOLD, 12));

when I use it, i get the following error:

Z:\playCode\Simulator.java:112: <identifier> expected
          sysName.setFont(new Font("sanserif", Font.BOLD, 12));
                                               ^

2) You're supposed to add extre comments on an existing question. And not opening again and again new questions.

Is sysName an object? I doubt it. Or else, Font is not imported.
