    I suggest you ditch the GUI builder and read through this to get a better understanding of what's going on: Trail: Creating a GUI With JFC/Swing (The Java™ Tutorials)

    But where are you stuck? What have you tried? What worked, what didn't it work? How didn't it work? Be specific, and post an SSCCE that demonstrates what you're talking about.
