how do you set the size of a jTextField so that it does keep on accepting input e.g name and password textfields

how do you also make the JTextfield accept text only denying numbers and alphanumeric e.g for a name JTextField.

well im sure there are set methods for the JTextfield class..

but you could create your own.

like...

public void increaseSize(JTextfield t)
{
// im not sure how to aquire the old size so you can increase by
// how ever much you need to..

}

but somthing along those lines

then you could have a method called

public void checkForNumbers(JTextfield t)
{
String A = t.getText();

for(int i = 0; i<A.length(); i++)
{
//again i don't know what syntax to use.
// but you have to compare each char at A.charAt(i);
// to see if it is an integer or not.
}
}

hope this kinda helps you lol.
