    Default Help merging program code with GUI code

    I made a quadratic formula solver, and built the GUI using WindowsBuilder Pro in Eclipse, I want to know how do i merge my code with the gui so that when i press buttons they do what i want.

    ** I also dont know how to add a display widget, in which there is a screen to display user input (check comments)

    Thanks Guys

    First, separate your files into two classes. Secondly, using the other class - not the main method, define a Handler class and link it to your members in the same class. Making the inner class private is advisable. If you have not used inner classes, check out some tutorials. Within that private inner class, define your method to handle whatever you want and remember to add stuff to the frame. Read more! good luck
