    Default A password code

    I am just trying to get a simple password response!!!
    I have 3 classes working together.
    I am only showing 2 of them. The others just launch classes and make a JFrame.
    Am i over complicating this?
    Here is code of my start_screen class.

    package screen_main;
    import java.awt.event.*;
    import javax.swing.*;
     
     
    public class start_screen{
    	static JButton OK = new JButton("Okay");
    	static JTextField pass_box = new JTextField(15);
    	static JLabel label = new JLabel("Enter the password: ");
     
    	public static void run(){
    		Screen.panel.add(label);
    		Screen.panel.add(pass_box);
    		Screen.panel.add(OK);
    		OK.addActionListener(new ActionListener (){
    			public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e) {
    				String pass;
    				pass = pass_box.getText();
    				pass_box.setText("");
    				if(pass == "gryff"){
    					System.out.println("Correct");
    				}else{
    					System.out.println("Wrong");
    				}
     
    			}
    		});
    	}
     
     
     
    }

    Default Re: A password code

    I want to suggest you use a JPasswordField rather than a JTextField. Perfect scenario

    Sorry I forgot to mention that I was using a JPasswordField but it didn't work.
