    public JTextArea area;

    public SetJavaLookAndFeel()
        super("Setting Java LookAndFeel");
        this.setPreferredSize(new Dimension(600,200));
        this.setLayout(new FlowLayout(FlowLayout.RIGHT));
        try        {

        catch(Exception e)

        name=new JTextField("Enter your name");
        name.setToolTipText("Your firstname or secondname");

        email=new JTextField("Enter your email");
        email.setToolTipText("Your email");
        area=new JTextArea("Enter your message");
        area.setToolTipText("Message to send ");
