how would I access the text from a textfield in a gui class at the click on a button and send that info into my actionlistener class?
The current error i get is "salary has private access in java.awt.Component"
This is the actionlistener class (not complete yet)


This is PART of the Gui class, and the tabbed pane where the JTextField reside. (only the parts that count)

Don't know the reason, but this line looks strange:
String getName = (JTextField) GuiInfo.name.getText();
I won't have thought that the compiler would allow a String to be cast to a JTextField.
