Hi,
I am having a coupld of problems with my JTextAreas. Firstly I am trying to create a form with various fields and labels. Everything is working ok but I need 3 JTextAreas one above the other and I can only seem to get 1 - prehaps the others are underneath. I can't seem to control the height of the JTextArea.
Here is the code

Secondly is it possible to prevent the user pressing the retun key to start a new line in a JTextArea, or is it possible to prvent my JTextArea from resizing if they do press it?
Thanks very much

I hope this code is near to what you expect:

GridBagLayout is very tricky. Maybe this post can help to understand it.
For an introduction look at the Java Tutorial
