fields not formatted correctly

So, I've got this window that contains a number of text fields. My problem is that when I run it the fields are all squashed and I can't enter any text in them, it looks almost as if they are set to a size of zero, which they aren't. I'm using a GridBagLayout and I can't figure whats wrong with it, I know it must be something in those settings that is messing this up. Any ideas?

Add this line to the end of the "init" method.

I get the following:

java.awt.Dimension[width=609,height=402]

Does that mean the preferred size of the window? I tried changing it to that and it doesn't fix the field size problem and not everything fits into the window.

Ahh, now I see the problem. One of my fields was set to a high size, thus screwing up the size of the other fields because the size of the window was too small.
