    Netbeans is a fancy source code editor or an IDE - Integrated Development Environment - not a compiler. If you're using the GUIBuilder, yes, it creates code that is difficult to read, modify, and maintain. You're better off learning how to code with Swing by hand.

    You can program a button to do most anything you want by attaching a listener to it and then programming the listener to do the desired action when the button is pressed. Start with this tutorial, and come back when you need help. We won't tell you how to do it in existing GUIBuilder code, because that is modified using Netbeans. You'll have to refer to the Netbeans documentation for that.

    After you've reviewed the tutorial, you may learn something from the example provided by andbin in Post #13 of this thread.
