problems with this code

like i said in my first post, I'm very new to java.
I've been tinkering on this programme for a while now.
what i want to create is an applet with :

1 JComboBox to the left of the screen....directly under this:
2 JButtons with texts on them to the left of the screen (one over the other)

and to the right of the screen a JLabel.

if a text is selected on the JCombo box...a click on a JButton should make the text in the JComboBox + the text in the JButton to appear in the JLabel....

if possible all this should be realised within a JPanel....

right now, i seem to have a general idea of what im doing, but i dont know how to link the various classes, methods objects etc together to produce a sensible not making any progress any more.

can someone please look at this code, and tell me what improvements i need to make??? I'd be more than grateful...thanks.

Since this seems to be a question about using Java LayoutManagers, I'm going to move this to our Swing/AWT/JFace/SWT forum, where it's right on topic.

thanks so much for the help!'s much appreciated.

still refering to the above applet.... is it of any advantage to use the "choice" method in place of the array for the JComboBox?... (i.e. String[] tempstrings ) ???
I agree. Here's the link:
