    Default Updating GUI dynamically

    Hello,

    I have some problems with making my two classes communicating with each other.
    I have one class client.java that contains methodes for initializing internet connection, sending packages and listening for packages. Other class is a gui class where the connection will be started and different things can be send to server depending which button has been pressed. My problem is that i don't know how to make my client class contsantly listening for incoming data and updating it in gui.

    Thanks in advance
    Regards

    how to make my client class constantly listening for incoming data and updating it in gui.
    "Waiting for incoming" sounds more like a Server than a Client.
    Can you describe how/why your client is waiting? Normally clients send a request and read the response.
    Does the client call a blocking method to wait for input?
    Is the waiting code in its own thread?

    Thanks for reply.

    Yest its a client but i want it to be in constant communication wit a server so that is why i want it to be able to recieve data from server.

    Can you describe how/why your client is waiting? Normally clients send a request and read the response.
    Oh is it?? Well yes that would actually be even better for my code. Sorry I'm quite new in all this and the way I was thinking was that server as well as client must keep listening for incoming data.

    So what you saying is that client must send a request to server in order to get data??

    Does the client call a blocking method to wait for input?
    Is the waiting code in its own thread?
    Right now it does not wait because i wasn't really sure how to do it


    So OK now, i think its sorted. I'm gonna make client sending a requests to server.
