    Default Add drawing function MouseMotionEventListener program?

    Posting this again since my original post accidentally got removed!


    So I'm using these 2 pre-written demo-files:
    Java Tutorials Sample Code
    Java Tutorials Sample Code

    if you go to this webpage you'll see an image of what the applet does: How to Write a Mouse-Motion Listener (The Java™ Tutorials > Creating a GUI With JFC/Swing > Writing Event Listeners)

    What I'm trying to do is just add the ability to draw when the mouse is clicked (dragged), nothing fancy, just a black line. Maybe add a reset button or something, but I've had no luck!


    I don't need any sort of super deep help, I just want to be able to draw on the yellow space

    I posted the code in the links, I took out my code because it was basic java stuff, using Graphics G and drawLine using the previous X,Y coords and the current ones

    Post the code here that you are having problems with. No links. Also post the full text of any error messages you are having problems with.

    Or if you are still trying to design the program, ask some specific questions about the problems you are having.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    Should I post the full code of both java files? One just sets the blank area for the applet and the other does all the dirty work

    void eventOutput(String eventDescription, MouseEvent e) {
    textArea.append(eventDescription
    + " (" + e.getX() + "," + e.getY() + ")"
    + " detected on "
    + e.getComponent().getClass().getName()
    + NEWLINE);
    lastX = e.getX();
    lastY = e.getY();
    textArea.setCaretPosition(textArea.getDocument().g etLength());
    }

    public void mouseMoved(MouseEvent e) {
    eventOutput("Mouse moved", e);
    }

    public void mouseDragged(MouseEvent e) {
    eventOutput("Mouse dragged", e);
    }

    private class MyListener extends MouseInputAdapter {
    public void mousePressed(MouseEvent e) {
    repaint();
    }

    }
    public void paint(Graphics g, MouseEvent e){
    g.setColor(Color.black);
    drawCoordinates(g,e);
    }

    private void drawCoordinates(Graphics g, MouseEvent e){
    g.drawLine(lastX, lastY, e.getX(), e.getY());
    }
    }


    This is the code I'm working on, no errors, just no output. Like I said I'm a Java newbie.
    I can't figure out exactly what I have to do to get this thing to draw properly

    You need to post a complete program if you want anyone to help with the testing.

    What code calls the paint() method in the code? That method does not override the Component class's paint method and will not be called by the java program. See the API doc for the correct signature for the method's definition.

    Use the @Override notation on a line before the definition of any methods that you are trying to override to have the compiler check that the override is valid.

    Also be sure to wrap your code with
    [code=java]
    <YOUR CODE HERE>
    [/code]
    to get highlighting and preserve formatting.

    }

    There's the complete code; like I said I'm not very good with java so I honestly barely know where to start. I've looked up tons of stuff on paint() and Graphics g and such, and I've gotten it to work by itself (just a simple whiteboard app), but I cannot seem to get it to work here. I think the problem is I just don't know where exactly to put things

    I'm pretty sure my paint and drawCoordinates functions are completely wrong, I was just trying things to get it to work

    EDIT: heres the BlankArea.Java code, this is needed also
     
    package events;
     
    /*
     * BlankArea.java is used by:
     *    MouseEventDemo.java.
     *    MouseMotionEventDemo.java
     */
     
    import javax.swing.*;
    import java.awt.Dimension;
    import java.awt.Color;
    import java.awt.Event;
    import java.awt.Graphics;
     
    public class BlankArea extends JLabel {
        Dimension minSize = new Dimension(100, 50);
     
     
        public BlankArea(Color color) {
            setBackground(color);
            setOpaque(true);
            setBorder(BorderFactory.createLineBorder(Color.black));
        }
    }

    Did you read all of my last post? There is a link to the tutorial you should read.
    If you have questions about the rest of my last post you need to ask. Otherwise I assume you understand what I said and are going to change your program to fix the problems I pointed out.

        }
    }


    the code Im having issues with is in the createAndShowGUI function

    "non-static variable this cannot be referenced from a static context"
    Can you post the full text of the error message that shows where it happens?

    The error happens when code in a static method (like main()) tries to access a variable in a class without creating an instance of the class first. If there is no instance of the class, the variable does not exist yet.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    The error is "C:\Users\Chris\Desktop\events-MouseEventDemoProject\events-MouseEventDemoProject\src\events\MouseMotionEventD emo.java:102: error: non-static variable this cannot be referenced from a static context
    frame.add(new MyPanel()); "

    Default Re: Add drawing function MouseMotionEventListener program?

    The MyPanel class only exists when there is an instance of the MouseMotionEventDemo class.
    Either move its definition outside the MouseMotionEventDemo class's definition or make it static.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    as you can see i moved the MyPanel class above the MouseMotionEventDemo class.

    That's strange. It worked for the code posted in post#12.

    What did you change besides moving the location of the MyPanel class definition?

    Look at the attached image in post#19. It shows the text being drawn. That from the code in post#12.
    Look at the code in post #12 and see what has been changed.
    How many versions of the code do you have? It's best to only have one to keep from getting confused.

    I created a simple BlankArea class for testing and commented out the yellow bit.

    I got it to work in post 21
    But i'd still like the text to be drawn inside the yellow area

    You need to post the code for the class the defines the yellow area.
    The drawString() call in MyPanel works. Have you tried copying that code?

    public MouseMotionEventDemo() {
            super(new GridLayout(0,1));
            blankArea = new BlankArea(Color.YELLOW);
            add(blankArea);
     
            textArea = new JTextArea();
            textArea.setEditable(false);
            JScrollPane scrollPane = new JScrollPane(textArea,

            add(scrollPane);
     
            //Register for mouse events on blankArea and panel.
            blankArea.addMouseMotionListener(this);
            addMouseMotionListener(this);
     
            setPreferredSize(new Dimension(450, 450));
            setBorder(BorderFactory.createEmptyBorder(20,20,20,20));
        }

    thats what creates the yellow area
