    Why do you need labels in a GUI program?

    Default Re: GUI

    I assume by label you are referring to something like a JLabel in Swing....suppose you have several TextFields, how do you tell a user what each is for? (answer, Labels). This is just one example, but JLabels are used for an enormous other things that can be considered 'behind the scenes', such as JTable rendering.
