    Angry Help i dont know how to make it work!

    Hi ive been trying to get the user input from the JTextField into my fileCreation class so i can name the file i am creating.

    Here is the code:

    public class window extends JFrame{
     
    public static JTextField textField;
     
    public window(){
     
       textField = new JTextField(20);
       add(textField);
     
       textField.addActionListener(new ActionListener(){
                public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e){
                    String input = textField.getText();
                }   
            });
       }
    }
     
    public class fileCreation{    
        public static void files ()throws IOException{ 
        File newFile;
        newFile = new File("C:/Users/Administrator.Dan-HP/Desktop/" + input + ".txt");
     
         if(!newFile.exists()){
             newFile.createNewFile();
          }
       }
    }

    not all the code just the relevant parts.

    That gives an idea of what you wanted to do. But does not really ask a question that can be answered. Does the code compile? ...run? ...have any errors?

    yeah it does run when i remove + input +, but i need it to know what input is so i can add it to the fileCreating class so the file can be named but it doesn't recognize it.
