    Default JFrame + JTextField Question

    Hey guys, I need help adding a textbox for users to input text onto my JFRame. Also how come the
    frame.add(o);
    is getting an error under the "add".

    Main method class:

    import javax.swing.JFrame;
     
    public class main
    {
      public static void main(String[] args)
      {
        JFrame frame = new JFrame();
        bot o = new bot();
     
        frame.add(o);
        frame.setVisible(true);
        frame.setDefaultCloseOperation(3);
        frame.setSize(300, 400);
        frame.setTitle("Chitter");
      }
    }

    Other class (this is where I want the textbox to be)


    import javax.swing.JTextArea;
    import javax.swing.JTextField;
     
     
    public class bot {
     
    	int x;
    	int y;
     
    	JTextField f = new JTextField();
    	JTextArea a = new JTextArea(30, 50);
     
    }

    Thanks!

    Post code that demonstrates the error and/or post the error message EXACTLY as it appears at your end, the whole thing.

    Read the API doc for the add() method to see what are the valid arguments for it.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
