    Default Anyone here use JCreater

    Should be a simple question but.

    I have my programme built in eclipse and everything works fine but I need to present it in JCreater and I'm having a problem with the image paths and I am just getting a blank.

    In eclipse the path is --> ImageIcon icon= new ImageIcon("src/picture"+ i +".gif");

    But in JCreater that path won't work.

    Any help much appreciated.

    Now this path works fine but its the absolute path, and I can't really use this.

    ImageIcon icon= new ImageIcon("C:\\Documents and Settings\\Compaq_Owner\\My Documents\\JCreator LE\\MyProjects\\project_name\\src\\resources\\picture"+ i +".gif");

    Where as what I need is to know what the relative path is and how to direct to it

    Solved and for anyone with the same problem

    here's the solution that I have come up with for JCreater

    Firstly put the image files into the classes's folder (not src folder!")

    then replace this line

    ImageIcon icon= new ImageIcon("src/picture"+ i +".gif");

    With this line

    ImageIcon icon= new ImageIcon(getClass().getResource("picture"+ i +".gif"));

    I didn't cross post on this forum, if I post on a different forum it's because I'm looking for the best solution, A different forum could have 100,000 members that would never see a post here.

    I presume it's noting the rules that you can't be members of 2 different programming forums.

    That's exactly the point. You could ask a question in 10 different places, and receive an answer in one of those places within 5 minutes. So why should everyone from the other 9 places waste time answering the question? It takes you absolutely no time to say "by the way, I also posted this here" so that we can see what else you've already been told so we don't have to repeat information you already know. Plus, people googling your problem that come will want to know what you found out.

    Right, there's no way to make or enforce that kind of rule. It's just common politeness, which is usually a good idea to give to people who are willing to help you, for free, in their spare time.
