Right Alignment of JTextField

If I want to enter text from the right side of a JTextField what do I need to do?
I have a JTextField object called jtf
I do :
jtf.setHorizontalAlignment(JTextField.RIGHT_ALIGNMENT)
Firstly this doesn't compile because the field is a float but the method expects an int. When I cast it to int it compiles alright but I get a runtime error saying it's an invalid parameter.
Any ideas?

For setHorizontalAlignment(), you need to use JTextField.RIGHT
