hi!

I want to right justify all these labels.
Somehow, this doesn't work.
 ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
   JLabel minXLabel = new JLabel("Min X Value: ", SwingConstants.RIGHT);
    JLabel maxXLabel = new JLabel("Max X Value: ", SwingConstants.RIGHT);
    JLabel xTickLabel = new JLabel("X tick spacing: ", SwingConstants.RIGHT);
    JLabel minYLabel = new JLabel("Min Y Value: ", SwingConstants.RIGHT);
    JLabel maxYLabel = new JLabel("Max Y Value: ", SwingConstants.RIGHT);
    JLabel yTickLabel = new JLabel("Y tick spacing: ", SwingConstants.RIGHT);

    minXTField = new JTextField(4);
    maxXTField = new JTextField(4);
    xTickTField = new JTextField(4);
    minYTField = new JTextField(4);
    maxYTField = new JTextField(4);
    yTickTField = new JTextField(4);

    arrageComponent(minXLabel, 0, 0, 1, 1);
    axisSpacingPanel.add(minXLabel, constraints);

    arrageComponent(minXTField, 1, 0, 1, 1);
    axisSpacingPanel.add(minXTField, constraints);

    arrageComponent(maxXLabel, 0, 1, 1, 1);
    axisSpacingPanel.add(maxXLabel, constraints);

    arrageComponent(maxXTField, 1, 1, 1, 1);
    axisSpacingPanel.add(maxXTField, constraints);

    arrageComponent(xTickLabel, 0, 2, 1, 1);
    axisSpacingPanel.add(xTickLabel, constraints);

    arrageComponent(xTickTField, 1, 2, 1, 1);
    axisSpacingPanel.add(xTickTField, constraints);

    arrageComponent(minYLabel, 0, 3, 1, 1);
    axisSpacingPanel.add(minYLabel, constraints);

    arrageComponent(minYTField, 1, 3, 1, 1);
    axisSpacingPanel.add(minYTField, constraints);

    arrageComponent(maxYLabel, 0, 4, 1, 1);
    axisSpacingPanel.add(maxYLabel, constraints);

    arrageComponent(maxYTField, 1, 4, 1, 1);
    axisSpacingPanel.add(maxYTField, constraints);

    arrageComponent(yTickLabel, 0, 5, 1, 1);
    axisSpacingPanel.add(yTickLabel, constraints);

    arrageComponent(yTickTField, 1, 5, 1, 1);
    axisSpacingPanel.add(yTickTField, constraints);

can you post the entire code.

Seems like there is no problem with the constants used for RIGHT Justification.

      private void arrageComponent(Component component, int column, int row, int width, int height)
      {
            constraints.gridx = column;
            constraints.gridy = row;

            constraints.gridwidth = width;
            constraints.gridheight = height;
            
            constraints.anchor = GridBagConstraints.LINE_END;
      }


This will work...
