GridLayout is usually easy to use, only the Components all seem to come out the same size.

For 5 rows, 2 columns,

Add a label then a button, that's the 1st row.
Add a label then a button, that's the 2nd row.
Add a label then a button, that's the 3rd row, etc.

Whenever I have used GridLayout I didn't bother with Constraints or anything. Just the GridLayout.

please try to run my program,then you'll understand my problem.
i thought a solution,that is use blank JLabel to fill up 3rd column for each rows and cheat GridLayout,but i think this is not a standard method.
