Textfield Alignment

How do I right align numbers in a textfield?

This is yet another example of why the Swing classes should be used in lieu of the AWT classes. Swing components contain a significant degree of added functionality not included in the base AWT package.

The java.awt.TextField does not support the customization of text alignment. However, javax.swing.JTextField does. It includes a method called setHorizontalAlignment which can take an argument of JTextField.LEFT, JTextField.CENTER, or JTextField.RIGHT to customize the text alignment. For your situation, you would use JTextField.RIGHT.
