OK Guyz I'm very new to JAVA I have two programs here the one is my Case Study where you put coordinates width and height and you choose from a list of shapes and its draw it... My main problem is I cannot arrange the JButton JRadioButton and JTextField and JLabel to be in the right direction I wanted it to have two separate panels kinda like this program i grab in the net the problem is I cannot incorporate the two programs together Any help will be much appreciated

Since your apparently getting help from multiple sources, let us know if you still need help.

General comments on your question: you've presented a lot of code to wade through. One listing apparently presents the desired result, the other is what you'd like help with to achieve the desired result. This requires a potential helper to copy, run, compare, and then interpret the two results to determine the differences, suggest modifications, etc. all based on the helper's guess at what your desired result is. It's an iffy path to success, requiring a lot of time that might be wasted due to misinterpretation.

So, state the problem more explicitly. Leave as little as possible to the reader's imagination and the less code that must be run in order to understand your problem, the better.
