sorry this question might seem a little "to nooby" but, does anyone know a youtube video, or a site saying how to make the visual part of a program?
i can only make programs in a console :P

Not videos, but you should consider starting withOracle's Swing Tutorials. They lean towards using Netbeans (fine) and the GUIBuilder (not so fine). First, learn to code Swing aps by hand.


Always learning Java, currently using Eclipse on Fedora.

Welcome to the Ranch
A more advanced part of GUIs: grid bag. You can find the classic tutorial here. When you have stopped quaking, find a copy of Core Java II (vol I) by Horstmann and Cornell and read about the GBC class. You can find a shortened description of it here.

I shall move this discussion to our GUIs forum.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
