hey, i need to know if there is a layout (other than in canvas) that allows the programmer to specify the placement of components by setting it a pair of coordinates i know flowlayout is the default layout, and that doesn't do it is a canvas my only option? the reason i'm saying this is i started learning java a little while ago, but am still used to using VB and having no layouts, just coordinates

In the AWT you can use Panel to hold components. In Swing use JPanel or JComponent.
Null layouts, Absolute Positioning in the java tutorial, is the least used/fun layout (check what happens when you resize the frame) but sometimes nothing else will do. setBounds is the key.
