Can anyone tell me why I'm getting these 2 errors in line 73:

"Frame2.java": Error #: 300 : class decimalFormat not found in class untitled2.Frame2 at line 73, column 3
"Frame2.java": Error #: 300 : class decimalFormat not found in class untitled2.Frame2 at line 73, column 30


Heres the code:

package untitled2;

import java.awt.*;
import java.awt.event.*;
import javax.swing.*;
import com.borland.jbcl.layout.*;

public class Frame1 extends JFrame {
JPanel contentPane;
XYLayout xYLayout1 = new XYLayout();
JButton jButton1 = new JButton();
JButton jButton2 = new JButton();

/**Construct the frame*/
public Frame1() {
enableEvents(AWTEvent.WINDOW_EVENT_MASK);
try {
jbInit();
}
catch(Exception e) {
e.printStackTrace();
}
}
/**Component initialization*/
private void jbInit() throws Exception {
//setIconImage(Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit().createImage(Frame1.class.getResource("[Your Icon]")));
contentPane = (JPanel) this.getContentPane();
jButton1.setText("jButton1");
jButton1.addActionListener(new java.awt.event.ActionListener() {
public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e) {
jButton1_actionPerformed(e);
}
});
contentPane.setLayout(xYLayout1);
this.setSize(new Dimension(400, 400));
this.setTitle("Frame Title");
jButton2.setText("jButton2");
jButton2.addActionListener(new java.awt.event.ActionListener() {
public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e) {
jButton2_actionPerformed(e);
}
});
contentPane.add(jButton1, new XYConstraints(93, 87, 205, 115));
contentPane.add(jButton2, new XYConstraints(100, 225, 206, 45));
}
/**Overridden so we can exit when window is closed*/
protected void processWindowEvent(WindowEvent e) {
super.processWindowEvent(e);
if (e.getID() == WindowEvent.WINDOW_CLOSING) {
System.exit(0);
}
}

void jButton1_actionPerformed(ActionEvent e) {
Frame2 frame = new Frame2();
frame.setSize(new Dimension(200, 200));
frame.validate();
frame.setVisible(true);
}

void jButton2_actionPerformed(ActionEvent e) {
Frame3 frame = new Frame3();
frame.setSize(new Dimension(200, 200));
frame.validate();
frame.setVisible(true);
}
}

I see that the total number of lines in the source code is less than 73. Can you exactly tell which line it is? Also, please make sure there is nothing after the end of braces }.

It doesn't matter how many lines there are or what the code is -- look at the error message. It says there's no class "decimalFormat". That's probably true. Every single class in the Java APIs uses the standard naming convention that class names start with a capital letter. You're probably trying to use java.text.DecimalFormat. Make sure you've imported it, and capitalize the name.

Your code starts out:



The number one rule of programming: always know what you're doing. Copying stuff that you don't understand, that seems to work, has been called "Cargo Cult Programming." It's always a bad idea, because if you don't understand something, then you never really know if it works correctly or not.

So what you need to do is find out what these statements mean. Presumably you've got an introductory Java book, yes? Look up "import" in the index.

I'm surprised that EFH hasn't suggested that you use UBB tags when you post your code. It will preserve your indentation so that we can more easily read your code. So for future reference, please use them

Ernest may not have mentioned it, but I did somethign about it. Surrounding your code with [CODE] and [/CODE] tags prints in in a monopsaced font with preserved indentation. And if you say [CODE] and [/CODE] in your post, you can say [CODE] and [/CODE] without its being interpreted as tags...
