This is supposed to look like the attachment that I included.

Basically, my problem is that when I ran the program, it is not at all the way I would like it. How do I layout my buttons so that it looks like the picture? I understand that I I can use .WEST, .CENTER, .LEFT, but even that doesnt work for me.
I'm not asking you to do this for me, but at least point me in the right direction.
Thanks.

You can set your layout manager to null or Absolute--either is VERY poor practice as you lose your resize options--Take it from one that started out doing just that, and it really does come around to bite you, and it's usually very severe when it does.

Laying out a GUI has to be done in layers--think multiple layouts and probably multiple panels. Once you get that idea going, things become a lot more simple to make complex GUI's that don't have that box and column look.
