Hi Friends,
I'm facing a layout problem and I have to make the applet ready and give it to my boss urgently. So help me out !!! Following is the code. I have created three panels(all with GridLayout) and my applet also have GridLayout. I have added the panels on the applet and they are ok. The problem is with two buttons. I wanna add them below the three panels, in the center. Thats the problem and I'm not able to solve it since I'm not very proficient with layout managers. Help me out!!
import java.awt.*;
import java.applet.*;
import java.awt.event.*;
public class Rest extends Applet {
Checkbox c1,c2,c3,c4,c5,c6,c7,c8,c9,c10,c11,c12;
Panel p1,p2,p3,p4;
Label l1,l2,l3;
Button b1,b2;
Label l4,l5,l6;
public void init()
{
setLayout(new GridLayout(1,3));
l1=new Label("PIZZAS");
l2=new Label("FAST FOOD");
l3=new Label("BURGERS");
l4=new Label("");
l5=new Label("");
l6=new Label("");
b1=new Button("SUBMIT");
b2=new Button("CANCEL");
c1=new Checkbox("1");
c2=new Checkbox("2");
c3=new Checkbox("3");
c4=new Checkbox("4");
c5=new Checkbox();
c6=new Checkbox();
c7=new Checkbox();
c8=new Checkbox();
c9=new Checkbox();
c10=new Checkbox();
c11=new Checkbox();
c12=new Checkbox();
p1=new Panel();
p2=new Panel();
p3=new Panel();
p4=new Panel();
pp=new Panel();
p1.setLayout(new GridLayout(5,0));
p1.add(l1);
p1.add(c1);
p1.add(c2);
p1.add(c3);
p1.add(c4);
p2.setLayout(new GridLayout(5,0));
p2.add(l2);
p2.add(c5);
p2.add(c6);
p2.add(c7);
p2.add(c8);
p3.setLayout(new GridLayout(5,0));
p3.add(l3);
p3.add(c9);
p3.add(c10);
p3.add(c11);
p3.add(c12);
p4.setLayout(new GridLayout(1,5));
p4.add(l4);
p4.add(l5);
p4.add(b1);
p4.add(l6);
p4.add(b2);
add(p1);
add(p2);
add(p3);
setLayout(new FlowLayout());
add(p4);
}
}
Thanks in advance

Try changing the number of columns in your panel, as so:
p4.setLayout(new GridLayout(0,9));
p4.add(new Label(""));
p4.add(l4);
p4.add(l5);
p4.add(b1);
p4.add(l6);
p4.add(b2);
p4.add(new Label(""));
p4.add(new Label(""));
p4.add(new Label(""));
