Hello all,
I have these ALabels(below) - That I need to display an error message and an items list hence the "[]" that I am calling "x-items" after 3 diferent buttons are clicked. I know that I need to create a method to display the x-items and also use my instance variable "count" (int count = 0; ) . I get kinda lost after that. These messages are a result of clicking the 3AbuttonHandler (3 buttons "left" that I am calling "Save", "mid" that I am calling "display", and "right" that I am calling "discard")

(Edited to remove "smiley" -Barry)
private ALabel entries;
private ALabel answer;
private ALabel[] display;
Any advice would be appreciated
Rob
note: I did look for a similar post

Rob, I think you will have to give more context and code for anybody to be able to help you here. What exactly are these "ALabel"s ? The only labels I know are "Labels" from the AWT library or "JLabels" from the Swing Library.

Sorry - yes they are just like JLabels or Labels (text to be displayed in the window).... I am using a custom library(?) from Riley - example: http://www.jinguji.net/course/csc142/alibrary/ALabel.html

(I have been able to get to this point)
I am to create a method that displays what has been entered in a textfield("input" below - the "X-items" is a list of ten ie. String [] storage = new String[10];
input = new ATextField(125,400,150,25);
input.place(win);
input.setFontSize(12);
This is what I am having trouble with - how to get the input of (up to) 10 items in JLabel
>>>>HERE IS WHAT I CAME UP WITH>>>
String labelText = "";
for (int i = 0; i < storage.length; i++) {
labelText += storage[i];
}
But it "Can't resolve symbol" in the second line....
Does anyone have any suggestions?
Rob

Hi folks - an update on my saga - I have in fact got somewhere - at least no syntax errors but it is not working - I need help.
I can�t get anything to display from clicking any of the 3 buttons � one which �saves� the string values and �prints� the number of entries- one that takes those saved values and displays them in the window � and one that discards the items. If I can get the first two I think I could get the last. If anyone is wondering: ALabel is just llike JLabel or Label


Thanks
Rob
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
