    Default I cant figure what way to call another class with this given code, any help welcome.

    Ok so I am trying to make a login screen, after typing in the password, and pressing the button it should call the given screen, but it gives and error.
    the problem is at the actionListener.

    //This will be the login screen for CardLayoutDemo

    import java.awt.*;
    import java.awt.event.*;
    import javax.swing.*;

    public class Login{
    public static void main(String [] args){
    JFrame f1=new JFrame("Keith");
    Container cp=f1.getContentPane();
    cp.setLayout(new FlowLayout());

    JLabel l1=new JLabel("Username:");
    JLabel l2=new JLabel("Password:");
    final JTextField tf1=new JTextField(5);
    final JTextField tf2=new JTextField(5);
    JButton login=new JButton("Login");

    final String user = "pass";
    final String passwd = "pass";
    cp.add(l1); cp.add(tf1);
    cp.add(l2); cp.add(tf2);

    ActionListener a1 = new ActionListener() {
    public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e) {

    String myText1 = tf1.getText();
    String myText2 = tf2.getText();

    if (myText1.equals(user) && (myText2.equals(passwd))
    CardLayoutDemo t1=new CardLayoutDemo();

    I am confused as to what it is you're trying to do and how your code is not succeeding. If you don't get a decent answer soon, please consider,
    • Post more code, and when doing so, please wrap [code=java] [/code] tags around your code to help make it retain its formatting and be readable.
    • Spend some time to type out a paragraph separate from your code that explains exactly what you're trying to do, your current error messages or exceptions or any misbehaviors.
