    Default Programmer needed for small GUI project

    Hello Everyone,

    I'm looking for a programmer to write code to complete for a project I'm working on.

    I have created a GUI with NetBeans 7.4. I would like to find an experienced Java/NetBeans programmer to write the code that adds functionality to the GUI.

    The information entered by a user in the fields and tables of the GUI needs to be written to other existing XML program files. Also, the GUI needs to read from an existing program file to populate a table in the GUI.

    This is my first GUI so there may be changes you want to suggest prior to writing the code. I need someone to work with me on this project.

    If anyone is interested please contact me through the forum and we can continue from there.

    Will pay using PayPal account.

    I have attached a screen shot of the GUI for your reference.

    Thank you.

    I'm not interested, but it may be useful to those who are to know if you used the Netbeans GUI Builder to generate the interface you posted. Did you?

    Hello Greg - Yes. I used the NetBeans GUI Builder to generate the interface I posted.

    Thank you for replying. Would using the NB GUI Builder present a problem to someone interested in the project?

    Probably. At best, the GUI Builder generates code that is difficult to modify and maintain. In the hands of someone who really doesn't know what they're doing, the GUI Builder generates code that very few people would want to touch. Someone who is interested in your project might suggest starting over with an approach they're more comfortable with.

    Thank you for the insight. I am open to creating the GUI in any form that is practical and functional. If anyone has suggestions along this line of thought please don't hesitate to respond.

    I think I can do most of that stuff. (The weird thing on the JScrollBar will be a bit trickier but I've done something like that too where I had the scroll bar be a snake icon instead and could use the methods I used to try and draw a shape, similar to that.)

    I've never really used GUI Builder that much. The GUI Builder probably uses GroupLayout. I'm not really familiar with that and have usually gotten errors unless I copied it from an example. It's a pain to code by hand.

    I can try it by hand. (But I don't have a Pay Pal though. Or indeed, any means to pay online for stuff with a debit card or credit card, so I'm not sure how I can receive money that way either.)

    Thank you GoodbyeWorld for offering your services. I would take you up on the offer but I posted the project on elance.com and I am currently working with a Java developer. I am much obliged to everyone who responded to my posting.
