    Default how to split a jframe as parent class with the class of actionListener, itemListener, etc...

    I'm working on a program using GUI. My problem is that I'm reaching **1000 Line** and this is stressful because all my code are in one file. I'm not liking this. So I research the internet about Inheritance. However, I'm not sure how this can help me in my problem because all what I know about Inheritance that Inherit everything in the parent class. However, when I try to use a variables in the child class to override it in the parent class I can't for example let say that I have in the parent class something like this:

    JButton getButton = new JButton("Enter");

    now when I go to the child class. I want to Inherit and use this variable so I can use the ActionListener on the getButton and override for the parent class, but it's not working.

    So could any tell me what I'm I doing wrong here, or this not the right way to do it ?

    More info about my code:

    This is my code:

    	}

    What I want to do exactly is to take the last code into another class or do something with it so I can use it in the Parent class, in other word any math calculation method or class I want them outside the Parent class.

    Note: I mean this code :

     
        private class CalcButtonListener implements ActionListener{
     
            		// vairbles for the ground Meat check box
            		private double total_GM;

            		private String stringQ;
            		private String stringW;
            		private String stringP;
            		private int meat_Q1;
            		private double meat_W1;
            		private double meat_P1;
     
            		public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e){
     
            			total_GM = 0;
     
            			// The ground Meat check box calculation  
     
            				stringQ = ground_M_QTextField.getText();
            				meat_Q1 = Integer.parseInt(stringQ);
     
            				stringW = ground_M_WTextField.getText();
            				meat_W1 = Double.parseDouble(stringW);
     
            			 	stringP = ground_M_PTextField.getText();
            			 	meat_P1 = Double.parseDouble(stringP);
     
            			 	weightPrice_1 = meat_W1 * meat_P1;
            			 	total_GM += weightPrice_1  * meat_Q1;
     
     
            				 JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null, total_GM + "\n" + s);
     
     
            		}

    Default

    I would move the ActionListener into its own file and then make it take your main Class as an argument to it's constructor. This also means that you need to make getter methods for all the fields you need to access, but you get your calculation code moved out of the GUI code.

    Also for a GUI project of this size I would probably use a GUI builder like Netbeans, just to make layouting easier.

    Default Re: how to split a jframe as parent class with the class of actionListener, itemListener, etc...

    Welcome to the Forum! Thanks for taking the time to learn how to post your code correctly.

    You should understand inheritance, breaking code into separate classes, and several other basic OOP concepts before coding a Java GUI. If you'd like material to improve your Java knowledge foundation, just ask.

    I disagree with Rolf on the use of the Netbeans GUIBuilder for building your interface, but that's possibly a personal preference we simply disagree on and don't need to argue. I am certain you'll understand the code better, it will be more maintainable and more easily modifiable if you code it by hand, without the aid of the GUIBuilder.

    Whichever you decide, good luck!

    Default How to Make a GUI program in separates files.

    Hello everyone.
    I want to make my GUI code in separates files. I'm reaching **1000 Line** in my program and this is stressful because all my code are in one file

    Will to make long story short I'm working in a big program, so I will put an example to show you what I need.

    First: This is an example code:

     
    public class world extends JFrame {
     
    	private JPanel contentPane;
    	private JTextField textField;
     
    	/**
    	 * Launch the application.
    	 */
    	public static void main(String[] args) {
    		EventQueue.invokeLater(new Runnable() {
    			public void run() {
    				try {
    					world frame = new world();
    					frame.setVisible(true);
    				} catch (Exception e) {
    					e.printStackTrace();
    				}
    			}
    		});
    	}
     
    	/**
    	 * Create the frame.
    	 */
    	public world() {
    		setDefaultCloseOperation(JFrame.EXIT_ON_CLOSE);
    		setBounds(100, 100, 450, 300);
    		contentPane = new JPanel();
    		contentPane.setBorder(new EmptyBorder(5, 5, 5, 5));
    		setContentPane(contentPane);
    		contentPane.setLayout(null);
     
    		textField = new JTextField();
    		textField.setBounds(0, 0, 427, 89);
    		contentPane.add(textField);
    		textField.setColumns(10);
     
    		JButton btnNewButton = new JButton("New button");
    		btnNewButton.setBounds(5, 137, 422, 111);
    		btnNewButton.addActionListener(new ActionListener() {
    			public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent arg0) {
     
    				 String s = textField.getText();
    			     JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null, s);
    			}
    		});
    		contentPane.add(btnNewButton);
    	}
     
    }

    Second: As you can see all the methods and everything in one file, and that not go for me.

    Third: I want this code out of the parents class (main class), I don't know how, is there a way to be inherited , or make a new class, or an interface class I need a way to my function or math outside the main method.

     
     
    btnNewButton.addActionListener(new ActionListener() {
    			public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent arg0) {
     
    				 String s = textField.getText();
    			     JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null, s);
    			}
    		});

    please give a written code if you are answering my question because I'm frustrated. I ask and ask, but I get completely different answer to what I need.

    Thank you.

    Default Re: how to split a jframe as parent class with the class of actionListener, itemListener, etc...

    Please don't post multiple threads on the same topic. Keep working it in a single thread. If you're not getting the answer you want or enough of a response, add more info, your latest code, etc.

    By convention, Java class names begin with capital letters. This is not only important stylistically but in making your code more readable and easily understood.

    As for your questions, that doesn't look like 1,000 lines, but I suppose the general question of how to split classes apart is a good one. Here's how you might split the main() method into its own class:
    // a class with a main() method to start the
    // class with a JFrame
    public class MainClass
    {

    By convention, Java class names begin with capital letters. This is not only important stylistically but in making your code more readable and easily understood.
    sorry for putting another one threads, and I will take your advise about the class name.

    [highlight=java
    // a class with a main() method to start the
    // class with a JFrame
    public class MainClass
    {
    // move your main() method here
    public static void main( String[] args )
    {

    } // end method main()

    } // end class MainClass

    // then, in a separate file . . .

    public class World extends JFrame
    {

    } // end class World[/highlight]
    will I did what you said. as you can see in this part of the code of the main method:
    public class test_1 extends JFrame {
     
    	private  JButton hereButton;
    	private JPanel contentPane;
    	private static  JTextField name;
     
     
    	/**
    	 * Launch the application.
    	 */
    	public static void main(String[] args) {
     
    		EventQueue.invokeLater(new Runnable() {
    			public void run() {
    				try {
    					test_1 frame = new test_1();
    					frame.setVisible(true);
    				} catch (Exception e) {
    					e.printStackTrace();
    				}
    			}
    		});
     
    	}
     
    	/**
    	 * Create the frame.
    	 */
    	public test_1() {
     
    		final showName nn = new showName();
     
    		setDefaultCloseOperation(JFrame.EXIT_ON_CLOSE);
    		setBounds(100, 100, 450, 300);
    		contentPane = new JPanel();
    		contentPane.setBorder(new EmptyBorder(5, 5, 5, 5));
    		setContentPane(contentPane);
     
    		name = new JTextField("");
    		name.setBounds(5, 5, 422, 67);
    		name.setFont(new Font("Tw Cen MT", Font.PLAIN, 23));
    		name.setHorizontalAlignment(SwingConstants.CENTER);
    		contentPane.add(name);
    		name.setColumns(10);
     
     
    		hereButton = new JButton("Your Name is");		
    		hereButton.addActionListener(new ActionListener() {
    			public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e) {
     
    			  nn.actionPerformed(e); // I also tried to put (null) instead of (e) 
                                                                // however nothing happened 			 
     
    			}
    		});
    		hereButton.setBounds(5, 158, 422, 90);
    		contentPane.setLayout(null);
    		contentPane.add(hereButton);
     
    	}
     
    }

    and this my other class that has the actionListener method:
     
    public class showName implements ActionListener {
     
    	protected JTextField tf = new JTextField("");
    	protected String s;
     
     
    	@Override
    	public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e) {
     
    		 s = tf.getText();
    		JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null,s);
     
    	}

    will everything working good however, there is on small problem one I press the Button its give me the
    JOptionPane without any words or anythings even when I write in the JTextField, So could you tell me please what I'm I missing here in my code.

    Thank you and so for the too many questions.

    Default Re: how to split a jframe as parent class with the class of actionListener, itemListener, etc...

    And still your class names begin with lower-case letters. I thought you were going to correct that.

    Here is your code, minimally modified with comments to describe changes.
    import java.awt.EventQueue;
    import java.awt.Font;
    import java.awt.event.ActionEvent;
    import java.awt.event.ActionListener;
     
    import javax.swing.JButton;
    import javax.swing.JFrame;
    import javax.swing.JOptionPane;
    import javax.swing.JPanel;
    import javax.swing.JTextField;
    import javax.swing.SwingConstants;
    import javax.swing.border.EmptyBorder;
     
    public class TestClass extends JFrame
    {
        private JButton hereButton;
        private JPanel contentPane;
        private JTextField name;
     
     
        /**
         * Launch the application.
         */
        public static void main(String[] args) {
     
            EventQueue.invokeLater(new Runnable() {
                public void run() {
                    try {
                        TestClass frame = new TestClass();
                        frame.setVisible(true);
                    } catch (Exception e) {
                        e.printStackTrace();
                    }
                }
            });
     
        }
     
        /**
         * Create the frame.
         */
        public TestClass()
        {
            setDefaultCloseOperation(JFrame.EXIT_ON_CLOSE);
            setBounds(100, 100, 450, 300);
            contentPane = new JPanel();
            contentPane.setBorder(new EmptyBorder(5, 5, 5, 5));
            setContentPane(contentPane);
     
            name = new JTextField("");
            name.setBounds(5, 5, 422, 67);
            name.setFont(new Font("Tw Cen MT", Font.PLAIN, 23));
            name.setHorizontalAlignment(SwingConstants.CENTER);
            contentPane.add(name);
            name.setColumns(10);
     
     
            hereButton = new JButton("Your Name is");
     
            // the anonymous inner class contruction was removed
            // in favor of using the separate class
            hereButton.addActionListener( new ShowName( name ) );
     
            hereButton.setBounds(5, 158, 422, 90);
            contentPane.setLayout(null);
            contentPane.add(hereButton);
     
        }
     
    }
     
    // this class is currently constructed to be in a separate file, but it
    // could be in the same file if 'public' was removed, or it could be an
    // inner class
    public class ShowName implements ActionListener
    {
        protected String s;
        private JTextField name;
     
        // this constructor accepts a JTextField object from
        // the calling class and assigns it to a local instance
        public ShowName( JTextField name )
        {
            this.name = name;
        }
     
     
        @Override
        public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e)
        {
            JOptionPane.showMessageDialog( null, name.getText() );
        }
    }

    WoW, I really don't know what to say. I all most said to myself I wont get it. However, you give me the right hope of how to do it, and other thing I did not mean not use a capital letters for classes names I just when I'm focused in something about programming everything have to wait.

    Real thank you so much.
