    Default scope problem: append to text field declared out of class

    so in my gui class (the main class) i have a text field, which is sort of the debug window
    but i want to write to it from constructors of other classes
    can i pass the text field as an arguement to the constructor or something? and set it equal to a property text field? if i write to the property text field will it output to the gui text field?
    i would write some code 4 u but i really dont think that ^ would work anyways
    thanks guys

    Did you try it? What happened? And I'll be blunt - for your own good please avoid shorthand like '4 u'. If indicates that you didn't spend much time formulating or researching your question, and yet you are asking unpaid volunteers do spend their time doing so.
