How do I put a text area under a text field in a swing GUI. Will the code be different from the one where I put a text area to the side of a text field? How do we determine the position of the text field and text area relative to each other?

This depends completely on the LayoutManager you are using (e.g. BoxLayout, BorderLayout, etc.).
Check out Sun's tutorials on Using Swing Layout Managers on their website.

Thanks. But how do I write sentences in different colors on a GUI? Like I have a sentence
static string s = "Sparky the Dog";
How do I make it appear on the GUI in red color?

Hi,
You have to create labels out of the text and set their foreground color to the desired color and then add them to the content pane.
import java.awt.*;
import javax.swing.*;
static String someText = "Java";
JLabel label = new JLabel(someText);
label.setForeground(Color.red);
getContentPane().add(label);
It depends upon the layout manager where you add the created label.I have put it in the content pane.
