Join Todd Perkins for an in-depth discussion in this video Labels and text fields, part of Learning Java Applications (2016).
- [Voiceover] Now let's get some practice…using text fields and labels in our user interfaces.…So I'm working in TextFields.Java…which is simply a Swing application window…just like we looked at throughout this chapter.…If you select a window, you'll notice…that its layout is set to absolute.…So if you don't have the exercise files,…make sure you set the layout to absolute…in order to follow along.…I'm going to hide the Project Explorer…so I get a little bit more space to build my app.…And then I'm going to bring some labels…and a text field on the screen.…
So we'll start with a Jlabel,…so I'll click on that in Components.…And then I'm going to click in the window…where I want to drop it.…Drop it right here, type Name and a colon…and then press Return to commit the change.…Remember that you can drag the handles…to expand the width or the height of this label.…Note that expanding that doesn't change the font size.…If you want to change the font size,…you'll actually need to select the label…and then modify that inside of the Properties panel.…
