    import java.awt.*;
    import javax.swing.*;

    public class MyFrame
    {

    JLabel lbsex;
    JTextField tf;
    JButton bname;
    JRadioButton rbmale;
    JRadioButton rbfemale;
    JLabel lbdob;
    JLabel lbadd;
    JTextArea tarea;

    frm.getContentPane().setLayout(new BorderLayout());
    frm.setSize(300, 240);




    bname=new JButton("Name");
    Dimension dim=new Dimension(100, 25);
    bname.setMinimumSize(dim);

    tf=new JTextField(10);
    Dimension dim1=new Dimension(400, 25);

    tf.setMinimumSize(dim1);
    tf.setMaximumSize(dim1);

    Box b1=Box.createHorizontalBox();
    Box b2=Box.createHorizontalBox();

    b1.setBorder(BorderFactory.createEmptyBorder(10, 10, 10, 10));
    b2.setBorder(BorderFactory.createEmptyBorder(10, 10, 10, 10));

    b1.add(bname);
    b1.add(Box.createRigidArea(new Dimension(0, 4)));
    b1.createHorizontalGlue();

    Dimension minSize = new Dimension(5, 100);
    Dimension prefSize = new Dimension(5, 100);
    Dimension maxSize = new Dimension(Short.MAX_VALUE, 100);
    b1.add(new Box.Filler(minSize, prefSize, maxSize));


    b1.add(tf);


    lbsex=new JLabel("Sex");


    rbmale=new JRadioButton("Male");


    rbfemale=new JRadioButton("Female");

    b2.add(Box.createRigidArea(new Dimension(0, 4)));
    b2.add(rbfemale);


    lbdob=new JLabel("Date Of Birth");


    frm.getContentPane().add(b1, BorderLayout.NORTH);
    frm.getContentPane().add(b2, BorderLayout.CENTER);

    frm.pack();
    frm.setVisible(true);

    frm.setDefaultCloseOperation(JFrame.EXIT_ON_CLOSE) ;

    }
    public static void main (String args[])
    {
    //MyFrame mfrm=new MyFrame();

    SwingUtilities.invokeLater(new Runnable(){ public void run(){ new MyFrame();}});

    }
    }

    Hello Gaurev18,

    Check out these Oracle tutorials about Creating a Custom Layout Manager and Absolute Positioning. Those should help you get the desired result.

    Best of luck.
