Your wrapping paths are hard to read. Start each on a new line so they are in column:
when I browse for the files and add them to the project, the paths written in the text boxes are not the paths where the file are located. i.e. the path is
"C:\\Documents and Settings\\All Users\\Desktop\\test\\file_name.txt",
the text box line is:
"C:\\Documents and Settings\\All Users\\My Documents\\NetBeansProjects\\Test\\file_name.txt"
"C:\\Documents and Settings\\All Users\\My Documents\\NetBeansProjects\\Test\\" is the project folder.
How are the Paths being put into the text areas? Copy and paste? Assignment from a method in JFileChooser? By the IDE?
