Hi all,
im trying to extend basic design of a console based system to a gui interface. I am having a problem with an array within an 'Account' class which stores details and amounts of accounts. The problem is: when i try and tie up the class which builds up the interface, panels, panes, container etc. to the 'Account' class it cannot pass the info properly. I have looked at numerous examples of swing and AWT but cannot see examples of pluggin in other classes!
please any advice would help!
Cheers James

I am not very sure what your exact problem is, but I am supposing that when you add your Account object to the list through some list modal, the info contained in the account object is not showing correctly. I think one solution can be overwrite the Account class's toString method, use that to return whatever info you want to show on the list, hope that helps your problem.
code sample:
public String toString()
{
return "Account: " + acctId + " Amount: $" + acctAmt;
}
