GridLayout Manager (delete please)

I just realized I put this in the wrong forum. Sorry about that.

Apparently I've been given up on, on another programming help type forum, so trying a new one. I'll be asking quite a lot of questions as I don't learn so well on my own and I'm in Java class, I'm slowly grasping it all but still struggling (especially when we're expected to do things in an assignment that haven't been covered in class at all, those are always fun)

Anyway, I'm meant to be creating an applet with Gridlayout manager as per the assignment instructions, however all I can find are how to make buttons, there doesn't seem to be any instruction on creating text input boxes or text labels for said input boxes....

Currently I've gotten this far:

I'm frustrated and annoyed, my book doesn't cover the above mentioned bits either, only buttons, and I've tried to to google gridLayout stuff for java, but can only seem to come up with creating button examples. I don't know if I'm just researching the wrong things in google or what, I've come across some code that maybe might be what I'm looking for, but without an example of the applet, I can't exactly tell what the code says as I've never used it before. And this has been my woosah, rub my earlobe moment. Thanks for the help in advance.

I'm not looking for the code to be written for me or anything obviously, but to be at least pointed in the right direction or pointers or anything would be much appreciated.

Not a problem. If you realise it later, let us know - we can then move the post to the appropriate forum once we figure out what exactly you are looking for.
(I edited your post to remove the extra lines)

I see that you have created a new post in the Applets forum, so, I am locking this thread.

I agree. Here's the link:
