How to avoid this behavior?

I have to put each JTextField in a different JPanel? Seems strange to me...

I want to make my screen like this:

LB: TF
LB: TF
LB: TF

Sou i try one GridLayout 3x2 but it stretch TextFields...

What to do?

Thanks!

For GridLayouts, the components stretches to fill the space. You can put the JTextField onto a JPanel then put this JPanel to the GridLayout.
