    Since a textfield is for text I'm sure you cannot add a button to it. Why would you want to do that anyway? Why can't you place the button next to the textfield?

    after posting this thread I asked this question to my other friends and one of them told that it is possible by add() method
    I tried it and it works
    import java.awt.*;
      import javax.swing.*;
     
    public class ButtonInTextField extends JFrame
    {
        JTextField tekst;
        JButton knopka;
        Container c;
     
        public ButtonInTextField()
        {
         c = getContentPane();
         c.setLayout(new FlowLayout());
     
         tekst = new JTextField (10);
         knopka = new JButton("");
         //tekst.setHorizontalAlignment(15);
         //tekst.setLayout(new FlowLayout());
         tekst.setLayout(new BorderLayout());
         tekst.add(knopka,BorderLayout.EAST);
     
         c.add(tekst);
     
         setSize( 300, 200 );
         setVisible( true );
        }
     
        public static void main( String args[] )
         {
            ButtonInTextField rustiX = new ButtonInTextField();
            rustiX.setDefaultCloseOperation( JFrame.EXIT_ON_CLOSE );
         }
    }
    so I think this will helpful to you too
