How would I code to move a circle,triangle internal to my GUI, all by itself?

Also, how would I code a key on the keyboard to make that object move?

basically, you create a shape and using a timer, move the shape when the time is right. As for the keyboard, add a listener to perform whatever action you wish when you press the key

If you want to move the object upon key press you will need to do that in the keyPress event - you'll need a KeyListener for that. I guess the timer is not needed in that case, if you want to do it only on key-press but not on regular intervals - you will get some sample code here:
