Start with the Swing tutorials linked from the topic listing page for the Swing forum.
I note you posted this question to a forum about AWT. The AWT packages contains many important classes to do with layouts, colors, fonts, D'n'D, printing etc., but I would advise avoiding the AWT component (Button, TextArea, Frame etc.) toolkit completely. In this day and age, the Swing components are used almost exclusively by developers, they have more and better enabled components, and you will be able to get more help on questions.
Perhaps if some kindly moderator notices the thread, they might move it to the Swing forum.
I was afraid of that. I really only posted it here, because I thought Swing was mostly used for buttons, menus and such. My mistake.
