    it wont store the inputs into the textfile
    Does the code call the write() method? What is returned by the getText() method? Add a println to print out the String returned by getText() so you can see what is returned.
    Is the file closed after it is written to?
    Is the file created? What is in the file?
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
