How could I center the text with this setup inside the button would it be:

 b.setHorizontalTextPosition(SwingConstants.CENTER);

JButton b = new JColoredButton("", Color.green, Color.black);
          b.setPreferredSize( new Dimension( 40, 20 ) );
          b.setHorizontalTextPosition(SwingConstants.LEFT);
          buttons.put("b"+(i+1), b);
          b.addActionListener(this);
          gridPanel.add(b);
         }
     JButton b1 = (JButton) buttons.get("b1");             // this is where I would place them
     b1.setText("Axe Kick");

That is what I though it would be. I am going to close this question.

I want to ask you a couple of questions so I will post them soon.

Thanks for the help

P.S.
I am learning so much from you. What I am learning, I think is very important. I am learning to think in less code to do the same job. I have been very impressed with your style of code writing, you have doon just that, less code for the same job. Thanks for being my teacher.
