    Default My path is changed...

    Hi there,
    I created a form with NetBeans. The client lets the user choose two files.
    There's a text box that saves the full path of the files' locations.
    Only 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"
    where "C:\\Documents and Settings\\All Users\\My Documents\\NetBeansProjects\\Test\\" is the project folder.

    I tried to use
    textbox1.setText(txtFile.getAbsolutePath());
    and
    [highlight = Java]
    textbox1.setText(txtFile.getCanonicalPath());
    [/highlight]

    but both showed the same results.

    Of course, when I tried to read the files, I got the "File Not Found" error.

    Can any please tell me why this is happening?

    Regards,
    Oryan

    Default Re: My path is changed...

    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"
    where
    "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?
