hey all, i have a main class and a menu class, in the main class i have a JFrame, and in the menu class it just creates the menu (file, edit etc) without putting it in a frame! is there any way to put that menu in the JFrame of the main class? if so . . . how? ive been trying to figure it out for ages.

ive tried creating a new object of the menu class and adding that into the JFrame like this:
but it doesnt work!

yes, i have created the menu correctly and done all that, but IN A DIFFERENT CLASS. how do i use that menu in the other class? i have tried to do but it comes up with non static method create() cannot be referenced from a static context.
when i try and set the method create() to static it comes up with all these errors saying cannot use * variable from a static context! its really annoying! HELP :s

You should NOT be using any static methods in your classes. If you are it is poor design.

Again, read the Swing tutorial for working examles.
