    Default How to put my code onto the window.

    I have made a text-adventure, I got text, input, ect. I have a window that pops up now, but I want to know how to put the text into the console.

    Game.java
    package main;
     
    /*
     * Shzylo's Text Adventure v1.0
     * 
     */

        	setPreferredSize(size);
        }

        	game.frame.add(game);
        	game.frame.pack();
    		game.frame.setDefaultCloseOperation(JFrame.EXIT_ON_CLOSE);
    		game.frame.setLocationRelativeTo(null);
    		game.frame.setVisible(true);

    Default Re: How to put my code onto the window.

    how to put the text into the console.
    Are you talking about using the System.out.print() method? It writes to the console.

    Or are you asking how to write Swing GUI? See the tutorial:
    http://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutori...ing/index.html
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
