    Please read the link in my signature on asking questions the smart way, especially the bit about using meaningful titles as well as not mentioning your deadline or urgency (otherwise you come off as impatient and rude).

    Then follow the advice here: http://www.javaprogrammingforums.com...t-println.html

    If you're still stuck, then please narrow your problem down to an SSCCE by eliminating any extraneous code that does not directly attribute to the problem. An SSCCE should only be a few lines long.

    Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NullPointerException
    at java.awt.Container.addImpl(Container.java:1090)
    at java.awt.Container.add(Container.java:410)
    at GUI.<init>(GUI.java:264)
    What code is at line 264 in the GUI class? Do any of the variables on that line have a null value?
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    at java.awt.Container.addImpl(Container.java:1090)
    at java.awt.Container.add(Container.java:410)
    at GUI.<init>(GUI.java:264)
    at GUI.main(GUI.java:298)
    There is some kind of error with your Container.
    At line 410 you add something that is broken. And I'm pretty sure you have made this at line 1090.
    298 is the error when you try to load the program. It has an error in the file, so it gives an error there.
    I don't know what the error on line 264 is though.

    @wuppy29 - You need to review what is shown in a stack trace.
    Line 298 in the main() method calls the GUI class's constructor
    Line 264 in the constructor calls the add() method of a container <<< This is the OPs code
    LIne 410 is in the Container class in the java.awt package <<< This was written by Sun
    Line 1090 is where the NPE exception was thrown. Probably because the argument to the add() method called on line 264 was null.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
