    Default How to combine Text and Button to show Search Result in java application

    I do a photo search application.

    in my application, it has 1 textfield and 5 buttons as Asia, EU, Australia, America and Africa

    When user enter a keyword (for example, cupcake) in textfield then press one of 5 button (such as button EU)

    It should shows a photo relates to the keyword n a name of button, EU.

    What I am stuck now is how I can combine the the text and a name of button in my code ?
    I am thinking of a string for a name of button.

    My code here is:

    PHP Code:
    if (e.getSource() == btAfrica)
            {
                if (
    timer.isRunning())
                {
                    
    timer.stop();
                }
                
    keyWord txtSearch.getText();
                
    String location btAfrica.getText("Africa"); // My aim to get name of a button called AFRICA so user search photo with a keyword + AFRICA
                
    originalKeyWord keyWord location ;
                
    oldKeyWord keyWord location;
                
    timer.start();
            } 
    Error goes up:

    PHP Code:
    Method getText() in class.ajax.Swing.AbstracButton can not be applied to given types 
    Is this way correct or is there another way to do much easier, please provide code example ?

    I appreciate with your helps.

    Thanks

    You need to read the API doc for the getText() method to see how to use it.
    What class is the btAfrica variable?

    name of a button called AFRICA
    This is confusing. A button has a variable name and it can contain text.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
