Unfortunately I don't know IntelliJ very well (if at all) but to answer your last question first, you usually drop a JPanel on the JTabbedPane component (where the tabs are) and it should add a tab for you. This is how it works in NetBeans and JBuilder.

What do you mean by a special page for your JButton?

When you click on JTabbedPane and click on the panel you are working on , IDEA creates an empty rectangle (at least what it seems) and when you again click on jtabbed pane and on this empty rectabgle , IDEA creates some tab pages which are empty and their label appeeras at top of the JTabbedPane component .

But the problem is that when i want to place a button in a special page of tabbed pane , IDEA creates a new page and places the button in that page which is unwanted .

I think this is in the newest version of IDEA , 4.5 and older version do not support jtabbedpane.

Just installing the IDE now. I'll have a look.

OK, just installed it. And as I thought, the process of adding tabs to the tabbed pane is the same as most ide's, just select the JPanel icon and put it in the Tab section of the JTabbedPane. Each time you do this, it adds another tab.

To drop a control (JButton) on a specific tab, select the tab, then click on its associated panel (select the tab's panel), then drop a JButton onto it.

I just did this so I'm quite sure it works. If my explaination isn't good, let me know and I'll try again.
