Hi,
I am having a coupld of problems with my JTextAreas. Firstly I am trying to create a form with various fields and labels. Everything is working ok but I need 3 JTextAreas one above the other and I can only seem to get 1 - prehaps the others are underneath. I can't seem to control the height of the JTextArea.
Here is the code

Secondly is it possible to prevent the user pressing the retun key to start a new line in a JTextArea, or is it possible to prvent my JTextArea from resizing if they do press it?
Thanks very much

GridBagLayout is very tricky. Maybe this post can help to understand it.
For an introduction look at the Java Tutorial
