    Default Click button to open JDialog

    Hi all,

    in my GUI I have a button (jButtonImportData), I would like to open a JDialog by clicking this button.

    I've added jDialog1[JDialog] so I have this item in NetBeans Inspector window.

    I have also

    private void jButtonImportDataActionPerformed(java.awt.event.ActionEvent evt) {
          // TODO add your handling code here:
        }

    but I do not know how to open the jDialog: should I have to add ActionListener()?


    Thanks

    Susie

    An ActionListener sounds like the way to go. Seems like an ActionListener is going to call your jButtonImportDataActionPerformed() method. If you already have a JDialog, you should just be able to call it's setVisible(true) funciton.

    But then again, without seeing an SSCCE, I'm just guessing.

    I've just added

    private void jButtonImportDataActionPerformed(java.awt.event.ActionEvent evt) {
         jButtonImportData.addActionListener((ActionListener) jDialog1);
         jDialog1.setVisible(true);
        }

    but it doesn't work

    Yikes, that is waay too much code- we simply don't have time to sift through all of it, especially if it has been generated by a GUI-builder. I recommend you ditch the GUI-builder and throw together an SSCCE.

    Also, saying "it doesn't work" is about as useful as us saying "well then fix it!" What happened? Did you get an Exception? Some weird behavior? Something else?

    Default Re: Click button to open JDialog

    You are right Kevin: to keep it simple, I have a Button on a Panel on a Frame. By clicking this button I would like to run a Dialog

    This is what I have for listener

     private void jButtonImportDataActionPerformed(java.awt.event.ActionEvent evt) {                                                  
         jButtonImportData.addActionListener((ActionListener) jDialog1);
         jDialog1.setVisible(true);
        }

    and this is what I get as output

    run:

    That Exception pretty much sums it up- you're trying to cast a JDialog as an ActionListener. You can't do that. You have to either use a class that extends ActionListener or an anonymous inner class.

    Ok I found how to: just add

      private void jButtonImportDataActionPerformed(java.awt.event.ActionEvent evt) {                                                  
        jDialog1.setVisible(true);
        }
