JTabbedPane problem

I have a JFrame with a menubar and a JTabbedPane.  The user specifies how many tabs there will be and what they will be named, and then the tabs are created, each tab containing a JTextField and a JTable.  However, the tabs look distorted.  Any idea what is happening?  Why the text and graphics look distorted?  I'm using addTab to create the tabs.  Also, lets say the user creates n tabs, how can I access JTable n?  Thanks.

use a wrapper panel for you tabs

public class TabPanel extends JPanel
{
   public JTable getTable()
   ...

And add instances of TabPanel to your tabbed pane, and use getComponentAt() method to access them

It's code taken straight from the book 'Java Swing' by O'Reilly:

public class SimpleTab extends JFrame {
      JTabbedPane jtp;
      
      public SimpleTab(){
            super("JTabbedPane");
            setSize(200,200);
            Container contents = getContentPane();
            jtp = new JTabbedPane();
            jtp.addTab("Tab1", new JLabel("This is Tab One"));
            jtp.addTab("Tab2", new JButton("This is Tab Two"));
            jtp.addTab("Tab3", new JCheckBox("This is Tab Three"));
            contents.add(jtp);
            setDefaultCloseOperation(EXIT_ON_CLOSE);
            setVisible(true);
      }
      public static void main(String[] args) {
            new SimpleTab();
      }
}
