I need to arrange checkbox and border vertically, but mine does arrange horizontally.
how do I correct it?


 public void createSinDataPanel() {
    //super(new GridLayout(1, 0));
    sinDataPanel = new JPanel();
    GridBagLayout layout = new GridBagLayout();

    constraints = new GridBagConstraints();
    //setLayout(new BoxLayout(this, BoxLayout.Y_AXIS));

    sinCheckBox = new JCheckBox("Sine plot");

    arrageComponent(sinCheckBox, 0, 0, 1, 1);
    sinDataPanel.add(sinCheckBox, constraints);

    JPanel inputPanel = new JPanel();
    TitledBorder title = new TitledBorder("Sine Parameters");

    JLabel ampLabel = new JLabel("Amplitude: ");
    JLabel periodLabel = new JLabel("Period: ");
    JLabel minXLabel = new JLabel("Min X: ");
    JLabel maxXLabel = new JLabel("Max X: ");
    JLabel cgcLabel = new JLabel("Current Graph Color: ");

    ampTField = new JTextField("1.0", 5);
    periodTField = new JTextField("1.0", 5);
    minXSinTField = new JTextField("0.0", 5);
    maxXSinTField = new JTextField("1.0", 5);

    arrageComponent(ampLabel, 0, 0, 1, 1);
    inputPanel.add(ampLabel, constraints);

    arrageComponent(ampTField, 1, 0, 1, 1);
    inputPanel.add(ampTField, constraints);

    arrageComponent(periodLabel, 0, 1, 1, 1);
    inputPanel.add(periodLabel, constraints);

    arrageComponent(periodTField, 1, 1, 1, 1);
    inputPanel.add(periodTField, constraints);

    arrageComponent(minXLabel, 0, 2, 1, 1);
    inputPanel.add(minXLabel, constraints);

    arrageComponent(minXSinTField, 1, 2, 1, 1);
    inputPanel.add(minXSinTField, constraints);

    arrageComponent(maxXLabel, 0, 3, 1, 1);
    inputPanel.add(maxXLabel, constraints);

    arrageComponent(maxXSinTField, 1, 3, 1, 1);
    inputPanel.add(maxXSinTField, constraints);

    arrageComponent(cgcLabel, 0, 4, 1, 1);
    inputPanel.add(cgcLabel, constraints);

    arrageComponent(cgcLabel, 1, 4, 1, 1);
    inputPanel.add(cgcLabel, constraints);

    arrageComponent(cgcLabel, 0, 5, 1, 1);
   inputPanel.add(cgcLabel, constraints);

    arrageComponent(cgcLabel, 1, 5, 1, 1);
    inputPanel.add(cgcLabel, constraints);

    //JPanel sinInputPanel = new JPanel();
    //GridBagLayout insideLayout = new GridBagLayout();
    // sinInputPanel.setLayout(insideLayout);

cf. my answer in your other question.

You could also use a BorderLayout and place the checkbox in the north and the titledborder panel in the center
