How can I specify a text field (JTExtField) as multiline? I mean that the user input doesn't expand horizontally but it automatically goes down a line?

Thank you

You can't! Use JTextArea instead.

The first line of the JTextField documentation reads: "JTextField is a lightweight component that allows the editing of a single line of text."

What you want is a JTextArea
