Hi guys!

I'm trying to make a grid of 10 x 10 textfields. I need each textfield to be referenced by an individual co-ordinate. They must start at (0,0) which should be at the bottom left of the grid (like on a normal graph).

So far I have managed to make a 10 x 10 grid of text fields, and each is simply numbered from 0 - 99 starting at the top left. This is no good unfortunately. This is what I've managed:

And then I just call
in my main method.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you muchos mooses!

Have you thought about trying a JPanel with using a GridLayout Layout Manager? I think it will accomplish what you need.

I am using the GridLayout. Here's a bit more of my code:


However, I want to somehow create a loop which numbers/references each cell, starting at the bottom left, with their co-ordinate, i.e (0,0),(0,1),(9,3) etc.

Sorry for not making that very clear. Please help
