    Default Problem with Jbutton

    Hello,

    I am having problem with the program below. I can get the nextJButton to work but the previousJButton won't. previousJButton is supposed to make the page number go down, but it won't reflect on screen(in a label).

    private class ButtonHandler implements ActionListener
    {
          public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e)
         {
     
                label10.setText("");
                Page++;
                Object src=e.getSource();
     
               System.out.printf("%d",Page);
               if(src==nextJButton) //this button works fine
               {
     
    	        if (Page==1)
                    {
     
                               label1.setText(formatter5.toString());
    			   label2.setText(formatter6.toString());
                               label3.setText(formatter7.toString());					  
     
    			   String labelText = ( "Page number: " + (Page+1) );
    			   label10.setText( labelText );
    	        }
     
                   else
                   {
     
                          label1.setText(formatter5.toString());
                          label2.setText(formatter3.toString());
                          label3.setText(formatter7.toString());
     
    		      String labelText = ( "Page number: " + (Page+1) );
    		      label10.setText( labelText );
     
    		}
     
                }
     
    		if(src==previousJButton)//here is the problem button
                    {
     
                         label10.setText("");
    		     Page--;
    		     String labelText = ( "Page number: " + (Page+1) );
    		     label10.setText( labelText );
     
    		}
     
    	}
        }

    Here is the whole program so you can run it

        }
     
        public void keyPressed(KeyEvent e)
        {
     
        }
     
     
        public void keyReleased(KeyEvent e) {
     
        }
     
     
        public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent event)
        {
     
        }
     
    }


    I use this in a separate file to get the program to run
    import javax.swing.JFrame;

    public class RunnableDataEntryTest
    {
    	public static void main(String args[])
    	{
    		RunnableDataEntry runnabledataEntry = new RunnableDataEntry();
    	      runnabledataEntry.setDefaultCloseOperation(JFrame.EXIT_ON_CLOSE);
    		runnabledataEntry.setSize(500,500);
    		runnabledataEntry.setVisible( true );
            }
    }

    Please describe what's not working. What is the previousJButton supposed to do? What is it doing instead, if anything?

    The code you've posted is the kind of (forgive me) crap people get from graphical code builders who have not taken the time to rename the variables, add meaningful comments, etc. People who post code like this give the graphical code builders an even worse rep than they already have which is already well deserved. Please learn to use the graphical code builder to your advantage rather than to your doom and then post THAT code.
