    Default JLables

    Hey guys - this is my first post

    I currently have a JFrame, which has a center, north, south, east and west panels. My question is this; can I create a multiline JLabel for the North Panel, that has text on the top and a text box below it? I know I can use HTML to have multiline text for a JLabel, however I want my second line to be a text box. Any ideas?


    label = new JLabel("<HTML> <center> <font size = 18> Enter your Search Below </font> <BR> </HTML>"( I WANT A TEXT BOX HERE));


    Thanks guys!

    Have you tried the add method which is inherited from Container?

    Yes, however the 2nd add will always overwrite the first.

    Nest your layouts. Create a JPanel with a particular Layout - for instance a BoxLayout with a PAGE_AXIS - and add the JLabel and JTextField (I presume this is what you mean by 'text box'), then add this JPanel to your main panel.
