    Question Inserting scroll lists and text fields into tabbed panes

    Hey, I was wondering what the easiest organization would be for placing separate scrolling lists and editable text fields into a tabbed pane.

    I am creating a multiple conversion program (what I call multiConverter), which is supposed to convert one unit to another. I plan on having the input and output scrolling lists side-by-side respectively and the input and output numbers stacked. The input is editable, the output is not. I plan on using many methods of conversion and for simplicity's sake, I will create tabs for each conversion method (area, length, temperature, data storage, etc.).

    I need some help with the code's organization. Any other ideas would be appreciated as well to benefit the project.

    Well, hello person I've never met before. Wink wink. ;D

    I believe you'll find this tutorial helpful. Basically, all I can say is that you should add the Components to a JPanel just as you would with any other JPanel, then tell the Tabbed Pane to use that panel as a tab. It looks relatively easy.

    As for your project that I've never heard you mention before--wink, wink--my suggestion stays the same as before: use a multi-dimensional array or a class that has conversion constants and such, then have your main program call upon this array or class whenever necessary. There are probably better ways, too...

    Good luck on your converter!

    @"snowguy13" lol
    I have already used the tutorial you have provided. I am trying to derive the organization of the code instead of the code itself (i.e. get the GUI initialized, place the tabs into the window, place the separate lists and text fields into their respective tabs.

    Would this call for a "switch" function or multiple if-then statement?

    Thank you for telling me that the switch function would not be the easiest organization for my converter.
