I have created a calculator in applet using awt. I got a problem in textfield as when you type, textfield displays from left to right but calculator displays from right to left. So what should i do so that textfield should print from right.

You can pad whatever you want to display with spaces on the left side. If you use a monospaced font (like Courier) then the width taken up by a space character is the same as the width of any digit. So if you want to display a 5-digit number, you'd prepend 20 spaces to it (assuming your TextField is 25 characters wide).
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
