For example: JLabel test=new JLabel("Selected File Testing");

If i use the above string,then my design gets collapsed.

Please help me to resolve this issue...

here is my code...


getContentPane().setLayout(new GridBagLayout());
getContentPane().setBounds(500, 300, 500, 300);
getContentPane().setBackground(Color.decode("#C1CDAD"));
GridBagConstraints c = new GridBagConstraints();

c.anchor = GridBagConstraints.FIRST_LINE_START;
c.fill = GridBagConstraints.BOTH;
c.insets = new Insets(10, 10, 10, 0);
c.gridwidth = 1;
c.weightx=1.0f;
c.weighty=1.0f;
// c.gridx = 0;
c.gridy = 1;
getContentPane().add(fileSelectLabel, c);

c.anchor = GridBagConstraints.LINE_START;
c.fill = GridBagConstraints.BOTH;
c.insets = new Insets(10, 10, 10, 0);
