    Post Help i cant get it to work any ideas thanks

    Hi i am having a problem getting this to work i want to add the user input input from the text field "Line 13" so i can add it to "newFile = new File("C:/Users/Administrator.Dan-HP/Desktop/" + input + ".txt");" but where i put input it doesn't work becuase it cant recognize input, if i remove input and just put hello.txt in "" thwn it runs but i need it be renamed by the user. any ideas? also they are both in two different class files ion the same package.

    [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();


    }

    }
    }
