    Red face Sinple GUI Program which uses the BorderLayout.

    I need to write a Java program to display a screen like the following screen, which uses the BorderLayout.

    This is what my output is supposed to be:
    Untitled1.png or View Here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/u1pqz588b8cofxo/Untitled1.png

    I tried writing the code for this program. But I am not able to do so. Following is my code:

    import java.awt.BorderLayout;
    import javax.swing.JButton;
    import javax.swing.JFrame;
     
    public class GUI extends JFrame 
    {
    	public GUI()
    	{
    		setLayout(new BorderLayout(1000,2000));
     
    		add(new JButton("Java"), BorderLayout.NORTH);
    		add(new JButton("Programming"), BorderLayout.CENTER);
    		add(new JButton("Is Not So Easy"), BorderLayout.NORTH);
    		add(new JButton("Linear Data Structers!"), BorderLayout.SOUTH);
    	}
     
    	public static void main(String[] args)
    	{
    		GUI frame = new GUI();
    		frame.setTitle("EECS 1570");
    		frame.setSize(600,400);
    		frame.setLocationRelativeTo(null);
    		frame.setDefaultCloseOperation(JFrame.EXIT_ON_CLOSE);
    		frame.setVisible(true);
    	}
    }

    Please can you help me get the output like the one in the attached picture file? Thanks for your help. Much appreciated!

    Default Re: Sinple GUI Program which uses the BorderLayout.

    First problem I see is that the code adds two components to the same area: NORTH.
    If you want those two components to both be there, add them to a JPanel and add it to NORTH.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
