I'm trying to coordinate multiple buttons around a single text field,.
Does any body have any Ideas?
here's part of my code so far

I know how to coordinate my grid but the idea of multiple buttons around the one field with multiple similar fields and buttons has got me at a loss.

read about all the layout managers here:

http://java.sun.com/docs/books/tutorial/uiswing/layout/visual.html

taker the time to study them, it will help you later on.

a couple of points:
1) you can often nest several panels, each a different layout manager, to get your desired effect.
2) null layout (or absolute positioning) is rarely a good choice.
