I put name into panel so that I could get some padding around name otherwise it just clanged up against the left hand edge.
2. If I re-size the window, say I make it narrower from the right hand edge, nothing re-sizes! It just remains the same and gets chopped off as I bring the right hand edge toward the left. I thought that one of the main reasons for using these noisome layout managers was that you don't have to worry about re-sizing, the manager takes care of that up to certain constraints. I must be missing something. How do I get it to re-size?
3. The input fields seem to accept any number of input characters even though I've set a size. What am I doing wrong here? I want to limit the user to a maximum input characters for each field.
4. The input fields are all the same width and I want then to have different widths and not all of them be the size of the biggest one.
