How to set the alignment of the JLabel content along the Y axis on the top in Java

Java 8Object Oriented ProgrammingProgramming

To set the alignment of the label’s content along the Y axis on the top, use the setVerticalAlignment() method and set the location. Let us first set a label component. We have set the label background color as well so that we can check the alignment of the label’s content properly −

JLabel label = new JLabel("Favourite Movie");
label.setPreferredSize(new Dimension(190, 100));
label.setOpaque(true);
label.setBackground(Color.GREEN);
label.setForeground(Color.WHITE);

Now, we will align the label content along the Y axis on the top by seeting location as TOP −

label.setVerticalAlignment(JLabel.TOP);

The following is an example to set the alignment of the JLabel content along the Y axis on the top −

Example

package my;
import java.awt.Color;
import java.awt.Dimension;
import java.awt.FlowLayout;
import java.awt.Font;
import javax.swing.JFrame;
import javax.swing.JLabel;
import javax.swing.JTextArea;
import javax.swing.WindowConstants;
public class SwingDemo {
   public static void main(String[] args) {
      JFrame frame = new JFrame("Demo Frame");
      frame.setLayout(new FlowLayout());
      JLabel label = new JLabel("Favourite Movie");
      label.setPreferredSize(new Dimension(190, 100));
      label.setOpaque(true);
      label.setBackground(Color.GREEN);
      label.setForeground(Color.WHITE);
      Font font = new Font("Serif", Font.BOLD, 14);
      label.setFont(font);
      label.setVerticalAlignment(JLabel.TOP);
      JTextArea text = new JTextArea();
      text.setText("Saving Mr. Banks");
      font = new Font("Serif", Font.BOLD, 13);
      text.setFont(font);
      frame.add(label);
      frame.add(text);
      frame.setDefaultCloseOperation(WindowConstants.EXIT_ON_CLOSE);
      frame.setSize(500, 300);
      frame.setVisible(true);
   }
}
