ok so i am trying to create a program but when i try set its bounds, i always get a small box each time...
am i doing something wrong, i have tried many different numbers for the bounds and it just doesn't want to work. What is a good size text area?
JTextField ip = new JTextField();
JLabel ipAdd = new JLabel("Internet Protocal");

Re: JTextField setBounds
Setting the bounds relocates and resizes the component in the absence of any layout managers. If you are using a layout manager (which you will be unless you explicitly set it null), you'll find that only max, min, and preferred size are respected - otherwise the layout manager couldn't do its job. I would suggest setting the preferred size to the size you want and letting the layout manager handle the positioning. See Laying Out Components Within a Container.
