  1. Re: Getting "cannot find symbol" errors when trying to pass variables between methods!

    Unfortunately, Dr.Java doesn't provide very detailed errors. Due to the line spacing, the only effective way for us to suggest how to fix your code would be to copy and paste it into an IDE.

    Re: Make JTextArea act as console?

    Your AddNumber class interacts with the console, so it doesn't matter where it is called, it will do just that. You're on the right path though for making your JTextArea resemble a console. Before...

    Re: Basic GUI (eclipse swing)

    You have a variety of options for taking in user input via a GUI. I'll list out a few but keep in mind, there are others I'm not mentioning:

  4. Re: Aggravating project, need fresh eyes and help

    Are there any errors that appear? There are a few problems I see. First, in your statement, you're only specifying a table name but not the database where that table can be found. Instead, try SELECT...
  5. Re: Aggravating project, need fresh eyes and help

    When you refer to updating or deleting content, do you mean that you want the program to write (and later read) from an external file, where each student ID is on a separate line or separated by a...

    Re: Calling up array methods from main

    No offence but, how is it you can write your own methods, use static, return statements and single-dimension arrays, yet don't know how to call them? Use whatever source(s) you're studying or...
  7. Re: Need help inputting and writing to a external data file.

    Since it is not entering the if-statement of if(!inputFile.exists()), the representation of the file or the file itself exists. It's now a matter of figuring out what the compiler thinks the file...

    Re: && , || usage?

    This if-statement will return true if a + c > b is false OR b is divisible by 3 without a remainder. The only time it will not return true is if a + c > b is true and b is not divisible by 3.

    Re: Calling up array methods from main

    Since all the methods are static, you just need to call them without creating an instance of the class and make sure you assign a variable that is of the same data type as the return (for your...

    Re: button overlapping the other button

    I'm a bit confused, are you trying to get the buttons to have that overall appearance but function as 1 button OR are you trying to get 2 buttons with different functions/roles overlap each other?

    Re: swing layout problems

    Can you post the code so we can see what happens or make a SSCCE? It could possibly be the layout that you have chosen. If you want to have more control over the layout, try GridBagLayout.

    Re: Searching with keywords in a sentence

    Your if-statement is insanely large and impractical, especially if you want to compare more words. Instead, use another array or an arraylist, such as:

  18. Re: How to print information from an array

    It may not be causing a problem right now but have you tried using hasNext() instead of hasNextLine() as the latter may return true even if there is nothing in the next line.

    Re: find a password

    Try replacing the == with equals(searchKey), that should fix the problem. If you don't care whether letters are upper or lower case, you can instead use equalsIgnoreCase(searchKey).
