Hi, I have spent ages trying to get this to work. I'm trying to store the value of a textBox into a textFile when the button is clicked.

Instead of out.println("This is line 1"); would I use something like:

out.println(textBox.text) ??

Hi,

it would've been useful for others to explain what a "textBox" is in your application. Obviously it's not a real Swing type but I guess it's something like JTextArea or so.

Anyway all JTextComponents (of which textBox is hopefully derived) have a write() method which takes a Writer object and stores the data model of the text component as plain text to this writer. Perhaps this is what you're looking for...
