Hi. I have problem adding text box after each label ID Code, Weight, Rate, Price Charge, it does not show when i run the code. Also, how do i add the $ sign when display the price charge.

the ouput should be like this:

        Fee Calculator

ID Code: [Text Box]
Weight: [Text Box]
Rate: [$1.02]
Price Charge: [$ ]

my code:

import java.awt.Color;
import java.awt.Font;
import java.awt.event.ActionEvent;
import java.awt.event.ActionListener;

import javax.swing.*; //Needed for swing components

public class PayrollApplication extends JFrame
implements ActionListener
//declare your instance objects here
JPanel mainPanel = new JPanel();
JLabel label1 = new JLabel("Fee Calculator");
JLabel IDcode = new JLabel("ID Code: ");
JLabel Weight = new JLabel ("Weight: ");
JLabel Rate = new JLabel ("Rate: ");
JLabel priceCharge = new JLabel ("Price Charge: ");
JTextField label1Field = new JTextField(20);
JTextField IDCodeField = new JTextField(20);
JTextField WeighttField = new JTextField(20);
JTextField RatetField = new JTextField(20);
JTextField PricetField = new JTextField(20);
JButton calculateButton = new JButton("Calculate Shipping Fee");
JTextArea outputTextArea = new JTextArea(5, 20);
JScrollPane outputScrollPane = new JScrollPane(outputTextArea); //For scrollbars around text area

Font bigFont = new Font("Times New Roman", Font.BOLD, 28);

// This is the first method called in a application
//We will create an object of ourselves to call the
//constructor and then set the default close operation for the frame
public static void main(String[] args)

PayrollApplication basicGUI = new PayrollApplication();

}//end of main

//This is the constructor for this class. It will be called from main
//It will set up our GUI panel with needed components
//and set up appropriate event listening
public PayrollApplication()
//call the superclass' constructor and send a title
super("Fee Calculator");

//add GUI components to the appropriate container

//add the JPanel to the JFrame

//call the listener method

//set the properties of the JFrame for display
this.setSize(300, 500);

}//end of constructor

//use to register the components to the action listener
public void addListeners()

//Retrieve and convert textfields and calculate and display the gross pay
public void addPerformed(ActionEvent evt)
double Weight = 0,Rate,priceCharge;
Rate = 0.12;
priceCharge = (Weight * Rate);


}//end of class

add the dollar symbol? you mean a.setText(a.getText() + "$");
or something?
